200 | Bruce Mau & Bisi Williams (Mau: Documentary)

My Summer Lair Chapter #200: Which Of The MC24 Design Principles Is Your Favourite?

This episode’s guest is the esteemed Bruce Mau whose business card reads: designer, innovator, and educator. Joining us to talk about those 3 dynamic practices is Bruce’s creative partner and wife Bisi Williams.

But first…we gotta talk about Mau: not the man rather the documentary. Directed by Benjamin & Jono Bergmann; currently playing at Hot Docs Film Festival after premiering at SXSW Film Festival.

Mau is the first-ever, feature-length Bruce Mau documentary. You know you’re doing cool things with cool people when your work logically prompts a documentary.

To quote the media release: “The film explores the untold story of his unlikely rise in the creative world, and ever-optimistic push to expand the boundaries of design. We tell the story of his incredible career – from Mecca to MOMA, from Guatemala to Coca Cola – and his most important project yet: his own life.”

Highly recommended viewing for anyone who practices or sells creativity. Or honestly for anyone who longs to ah…redesign their whole life.

So let’s get into his documentary life; talk to his charming wife and understand how he deals with strife. No stress this podcast is not rife with rhymes.
