How to Find Joy in Learning (ft. John Maeda) | Ep. 210

John Maeda has a long list of accomplishments that are in some way related to design. Some of these accomplishments include serving as President of Rhode Island School of Design, board member at Sonos and W+K, and teaching at MIT for over a decade. Yet, perhaps the most fascinating aspect of this conversation is the equanimity John seems to find in the midst of living a "creative life".

Some of the topics covered in this episode include, but aren’t limited to:

  • Art's imperfect relationship with the public
  • John's childhood in Seattle
  • Advice he received about what makes a great art school student
  • One of the most important lessons he learned from Patrick Henry Winston
