Year 2018
To celebrate the fifteenth anniversary of Design Observer, we worked with Michael Bierut, Jessica Helfand, and MIT Press to design and edit a book collecting some of the site's best essays. In addition to designing and co-editing the book, Jarrett conducted an interview with Michael and Jessica that serves as the book's introduction. Culture is Not Always Popular will be available from MIT Press in November. More images coming soon.

Fifteen Years

The book's endpapers feature a running list of every article published over Design Observer's 15 year history.


In addition to the book's design, Jarrett also served as managing editor for the project and conducted a brand new interview with Michael and Jessica for the book's introduction.
