Here’s a rich trove of infotainment that is fun to watch, but won’t distract you too much from what’s happening on the needles: the Netflix series “Abstract: The Art of Design.”
This piece on DesignLab expresses thoughts about the strengths and weaknesses of the series. I agree that the episode on illustrator Christoph Niemann is the best of season 1, with Paula Scher coming in a close second. Or maybe I am just drawn to my fellow New Yorkers? If nothing else, watch the ingenious title sequences for their episodes (click on their names).
I learned a lot about designers, some of whose work I didn’t know at all, in this beautifully photographed and produced series.
