Design Matters Today with Designer and DJ Michael Hodgson

Mick's playlist!

It is Friday again! That means that Design Matters is live at 3 PM ET. My guest today is Designer and DJ Mick Hodgson of PhD. We will be broadcasting the annual Design Matters mostly music show, and Mick will be spinning a wide variety of excellent tunes.

Ph.D is a Santa Monica based graphic design office established in 1988 by designers Clive Piercy and Michael Hodgson. Over the years, it's client roster has included a diverse mix of Fortune 500 and innovative companies such as 20th Century Fox, Border Grill, Chronicle Books, Frederick Fisher & Partners, The Getty Foundation, Herman Miller, liveBooks, Nike, Nordstrom and The Rand Corporation. Noted for its crisp thinking, wit, clear expression and meticulous craft, Ph.D has garnered many awards nationally and internationally for the full range of graphic design work including brand identity systems, print advertising, exhibit design and web design, excelling in both consumer and business to business communication.

Today, Ph.D is led by principal Michael Hodgson, an advocate for sustainable design and a leader in the local and national design community. Michael studied at St. Martin's School of Art in London and graduated from Brighton College of Art in East Sussex, England in 1974. He was art director of Harpers & Queen magazine working with the legendary Willie Landels until 1979. Michael is President Emeritus of AIGA Los Angeles and now serves on the advisory boards of both the AIGA Los Angeles chapter and the AIGA Center For Sustainable Design. He has juried many national design and student scholarship competitions. Michael is married with three beautiful daughters, Lily, Maudie Rae and Lucie. When he is not working, he can often be found riding the roads and trails of his beloved Santa Monica Mountains.
