Design is universal. We all live and work in the built world, and every object, system and environment in the built world has been designed. Clever is a podcast about design. Well, actually, it's about designers, too. Sure, they're visionaries, problem-solvers, critical thinkers, rebels and aesthetes, but above all, they're human. Designer Amy Devers and Design Milk's Jaime Derringer are having candid and revealing conversations with these super-smart people because, well, relating to the humans responsible for the objects and environments that shape our lives can result in a more meaningful connection to the built world.

Inspiring

I heard about Clever when creator Amy Devers did a panel at parents weekend at RISD, where my child had just started. I must admit I’m one of the art school parents a little worried their child has signed up for a lifetime as a starving artist. But I started listening to this podcast and am amazed at the number of creators/designers featured who have found wonderfully interesting and rewarding careers using their creativity. The interviewers always make the designer go back to their childhood to tell them what inspired them to be so outside the box and it is always engaging even when I have never heard of this person, which is usually. I highly recommend it to all, but particularly to parents of creative types!

Favorite!

I love this podcast so much. The interviewers ask the right questions and the conversation flow always feels genuine and intentional. As a art and design student it’s important to hear the process and journey of designers and this podcast lays it out in such a helpful way! I feel motivated and inspired when I hear about the tribulations a variety of designers have faced and I’ve picked up many bits of advice and philosophy that I can incorporate in my own life moving forward. Thank you!!!!!!!

A must for designers and beyond

I started listening to clever when they interviewed my design leader. They did an amazing job excavating the insight and inspiration of not only him but all subjects they interview. I’ve left every interview with new inspiration and hunger to progress my own design career. So many amazing ideas to explore in our short time on this pale blue starship.
