Christoph Niemann: 2015 neue Likes

Es ist der letzte Vortrag des Abends, der letzte der TYPO 2015. Christoph Niemann betritt die Bühne, geschmeidig und gut gelaunt: „To round things off, I’d like to tell you what I think of character.“ Er spricht über Ängste und Erfolg, Kritik und Kreation – und Gummibärchen.

„Haltung und Charakter – die DNA des Designs”, so lautet der Titel der Diskussionsrunde zwischen Möbeldesigner Konstantin Grcic, Vitra Museums Direktor Mateo Kries und Gestalter und Typograph Erik Spiekermann . Doch eigentlich ging es dann doch vor allem um Haltung: Welche Haltung darf ich als Gestalter haben? Welche sollte ich haben?

Tina Roth Eisenberg: The best way to complain is to make things.

My job is “sitting behind a computer and laugh.” Tina Roth Eisenberg, also known as ‘swissmiss’, explains her principles how to live a happy and fulfilled work and personal life – filled with confetti, good people and the intent, to make things better.
