This is great. I wish I’d had this video to refer people to when they ask me what being a designer means. That it’s more than graphic design or industrial design. You don’t need a beret or a drafting table; a compass or a set of paint brushes. It’s just telling a story. Also, this is an important video to refer to those egotistical designers, the ones who think people need to learn to use their work. The truth is, designers are artisans rather than artists, we build tools that people use, not things that hang on museum walls. Watch this five times then send it to all your friends.

Update: I grabbed the FLV and wrapped it in a new video player that allows full screen since it’s a tiny file. I hope it doesn’t upset the people at Moooi. I’ll take it down if it does. It’s 22mb so give it time to load. I suggest visiting the Moooi site unless you really want full screen.
