Episode #6: Neil & Jen Baker Brown on “A Designer’s Responsibility to the Future”
What is a designer’s social and environmental responsibility to society? And what if designers were held liable for the things they designed, as architects are for the buildings they build? This episode of the HOW Design Live podcast started as an interview between Neil and Jen Baker Brown and Ilise Benun, founder of Marketing-Mentor.com and Partner for HOW Design Live’s new Creative Entrepreneur program — then evolved into almost a sermon about whether the creative class can organize to make corporations produce healthier products.
