is an independent design and editorial studio and think tank led by Jarrett Fuller. Our work takes shape across a variety of media, from books and websites to podcasts and public relations and we work with clients large and small, around the world.

In addition to client work, we also produce experimental work, research projects, and original content, including the podcast Scratching the Surface, the online archive of graphic design texts, and other books and speculative projects.

Jarrett Fuller guest hosts the Institute of Design podcast With Intent

Type News
The six episode season, guest hosted by Jarrett, features and interviews and roundtables with ID faculty.

The first episode of our second season of ID’s podcast, With Intent, is available now. Listeners to With Intent‘s first season will note that this season has a new host—Jarrett Fuller, host of the Scratching the Surface podcast. This season, Jarrett is helping ID to write our most recent chapter in celebration of our 85th anniversary.

In Season 2, Jarrett hosts conversations about the state of design today, asking our faculty big questions—about ID’s Bauhaus lineage, whether human-centered design is enough, and how one becomes a designer and learns design.

The first episode, How Does Someone Become a Designer? features Tomoko Ichikawa, Associate Professor of Visual Communication, and Marty Thaler, Associate Professor of Product Design. Tomoko and Marty discuss ID’s Foundation sequence—possibly the strongest tie that ID has today with its history as The New Bauhaus. (Foundation at ID makes it possible for nondesigners to enter our graduate school.)
