We decided to record a year end special of On the Grid. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed recording it with Dan and Andy.
Episode 24: 2012 in Design [recorded December 29th, 2012]
It’s our year end special. We discussed the events and issues that effected and shaped design this past year. We focused on three: The evolving relationship between design and technology, changes in publishing, and the flat design vs. skeuomorphism debate.
If you want to see other topics and links we considered, including Crowdfunding Product/Industrial Design and the Evolution of Email, check out the post on our subreddit.
We’re starting a subreddit for On the Grid. We hope that you will submit links for us to discuss on the show, and ultimately that it will become a resource for relevant design news.
On the Grid - Episode 5 is online. Thanks to everyone who has been reviewing us on iTunes. It really helps. If you haven’t yet, please do.

Episode 1: Replacing Your Eyes [mp3 link released on July 24, 2012]
We’re posting our pilot episode of On the Grid! We’ve been recording the show for a few weeks now, we’ve done tests that will probably never see the light of day, and we’re finally ready to launch episode one.
We plan on using the show to discuss design through recent events and news. Hopefully you’ll enjoy a mix of design conversation, joking side comments, and discussion of the issues that affect us as designers.
We’re very excited to start this new podcast, and we know it will be may a bit of a process to find our voice, so we can appreciate a good to critique.

I’m starting a podcast called On the Grid with Andy Mangold and Dan Auer to discuss design news and topics.
We’ve decided to make the logo design process public and up for critique, so if you’re a designer and have a moment, take a look at the studies, follow us for new ideas, and post your critiques in the comments.
