Design Matters Live Tonight with Dave Eggers

marian's design!

Adobe and AIGA San Francisco are presenting a very special four-part series—Design Matters Live: Life, Love and the Pursuit of Design. Joining me tonight is Dave Eggers.

Dave Eggers is the author of the memoir A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius (2000), the novels You Shall Know Our Velocity (2002) and What is the What (2006), and the story collection How We Are Hungry (2004). He is editor of the annual The Best American Nonrequired Reading series, and co-editor of the Voice of Witness series of oral histories. In 1998, he founded McSweeney’s, an independent book publishing house in San Francisco which puts out the McSweeney’s quarterly; the monthly magazine The Believer; a daily humor website,; and Wholphin, a DVD quarterly of short films. In 2002, he opened 826 Valencia (, a writing lab for young people located in the Mission District of San Francisco; there are now branches of 826 in New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, Chicago and Michigan. He has designed most of the books and quarterlies published by McSweeney’s and created the templates for The Believer and Wholphin. His design work has been featured in many annuals and periodicals, and was featured in the National Design Triennial at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum and in the California Design Biennial. Mr. Eggers lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.
