Steven Heller—design historian, author of countless books about design, and a national treasure, if you ask me— interviewed me briefly for his column The Daily Heller. The subject is my new book, How They Got There: Interviews With Digital Designers About Their Careers. He asked me what makes this book different from other collections of designer profiles, why I chose to self-publish it, how I selected the interview subjects, and what surprised me most about the conversations I had. Steve is a hero whom I’m lucky enough to call a friend (we were colleagues at The New York Times), and I’m grateful to him for the opportunity.
