Real Criticism – Design Like DaVinci

Brian Sullivan’s Design like DaVinci was apparently one of the highlights of SXSW 2013, and came to me recommended by Slideshare. Brian’s presentation was excellent in so many ways, I recommend it as a must see.

Excellent criticism provides context and extends meaning. Design Like DaVinci is the jackpot.

Design Like DaVinci is about work and working better. It is about history, biography, culture, and innovation. It is also a demonstration of gifted presentation.

I’ve seen more useless slide shows than I can remember. I habitually avoid podcasts and webinars, having found I get more understanding in less than half the time from the transcript (if available), or even related writing if the subject interests me.

I am not an artist. I am graphically challenged, and work hard for the few graphics on my posts.

Design Like DaVinci is the best I’ve seen weaving slide show and podcast to create an extraordinary presentation. It’s an hour of magic. Turn on the slides, then turn on the podcast in another tab, strap yourself in, and take good notes. Design like DaVinci is an hour of learning, entertainment, and optimism.

Then by all means, go Design Like DaVinci.
