I am so pleased to announce that my entire archive of Design Matters—all 100 episodes—are now available on the redesigned Design Observer. The shows will live on Observer Media, one of Design Observer's new channels. This is the first time the shows have one aggregated home, and I am thrilled to have them all accessible in one place. Here is some info from the Design Observer site:

My first new show should be up in the next few weeks, and lots more to come in the Fall. A good article explaining all of the changes about Design Observer can be found on the Fast Company blog.

In the next month or so, this blog will be transitioning to a site with oodles of content from my soon-to-be-published book, Look Both Ways: Illustrated Essays on the Intersection of Life and Design. The site will be designed by Armin Vit and Bryony Gomez-Palacio and will featured audio links, original art featured in the book, rejected art from the book and lots and lots more.
