Design Notes: Making Mistakes on Purpose

How Illustrator Laurie Rosenwald uses chaos to create creative potential

Design Notes is a show about creative work and what it teaches us. In this episode, Liam speaks with illustrator, editorial designer, and author Laurie Rosenwald about how she’s managed to cultivate an aesthetic—and a career—around “making mistakes on purpose.” Learn how chaos and collage can come together to reveal unexpected creative potential, and let Rosenwald help make sure you’re never alone with a blank page.

“I have all these different chaotic images; sometimes they’re washes or torn paper, or different kinds of lines or blobs or squares or patches, and those are elements that can become anything. So I'm never alone with a blank screen or a piece of paper.”
