The legendary Ric Grefé on listening, leadership and legacy via design to impact social change

March 28, 2016

Our guest on episode 22 is unlike any other. His CV includes a broad range of accomplishments including working in naval intelligence during the Vietnam War, working as a journalist for the Associated Press, and contributing as a business writer for Time magazine. His most recent and significant contribution to the world of design has been his 20 year tenure as the Executive Director of AIGA (American Institute of Graphic Arts), where he was committed to advancing creative thinking from 1995 through to 2015.

The thing that astounds me is the profoundly unique way that he observes the world we live in. I guarantee that you will view design, and your ability to impact the world, in a whole new dimension. It’s an exciting and deep episode, so I won’t give too much away.

I present to you, the complex and poetic mind of the incredible Mr Ric Grefé.
