Neon Moiré Show Episode — 12. Interview with Michael Ellsworth and Corey Gutch of multidisciplinary design studio Civilization based in Seattle recorded during Graphic Matters 2017. Interview by Thomas Dahm
Neon Moiré Show — Episode XII — Civilization

In partnership with Graphic Matters, we bring a special serie of interviews with researchers, designers and thinkers who presented their work during the graphic design festival. Graphic Matters, founded in 2008, shows every two year how designers shape and influence our perspective on current issues that matter. With the slogan Visual stories you care about, Graphic Matters presented work from over 200 international designers. Through the exhibitions, talkshows and workshops Graphic Matters challenged the visiter to create their own image.

In this episode of the Neon Moiré Show, the fifth in this serie, Thomas Dahm, talks with Michael Ellsworth and Corey Gutch of multidisciplinary design studio Civilization based in Seattle. Earlier this year we also had the pleasure to talk with Civilization, which you can watch back here. During this live broadcasted conversation they talk about the ethos of their studio, the Design of Dissent exhibition, their award winning project Shout Your Abortion and the three day workshop the give during the festival.

Design is a collective human act
