Lessons Designers can learn from Comedians

An old friend of mine, who happens to be a (former) stand up comedian, sent me a link to this piece by Michael Bierut which draws out seven lessons for graphic designers from the 1-hour HBO special, Talking Funny.

I love it when people find inspiration for one field in another, and Bierut does a great job of finding common ground between these seemingly dissimilar skills.  This is a little bit of a different post for me today--especially since I'm going to bite my tongue and send you to the article rather than sharing my interpretation or even my two cents worth.

Read it, reflect, let me know what you think.

Thanks Mark!
