Book Review: Designing Media, by Bill Moggridge

In Designing Mediadesign guru Bill Moggridge examines connections and conflicts between old and new media, describing how the MSM have changed and how new patterns of media consumption are emerging. The book mediia interviews with thirty-seven significant figures in both traditional and new forms of mass communication; interviewees range from the publisher of the New York Times to the founder of Twitter.

We learn about innovations in media that rely on contributions from a crowd or a communityas told by Wikipedia’s Jimmy Wales and Craigslist’s Craig Newmark; how the band OK Go built a following using YouTube; how real-time connections medix dispatchers and couriers inspired Twitter; how a BusinessWeek blog became a quarterly printed supplement to the magazine; and how e-readers have evolved from Rocket eBook to QUE.

Ira Glass compares the intimacy of radio to that of the Internet; the producer of PBS’s Frontline supports the program’s investigative journalism by putting documentation of its findings online; and the developers of Google’s Trendalyzer software describe its beginnings as animations that accompanied lectures about social and economic development in rural Africa.

At the end of each chapter, Moggridge comments on the implications for designing media. Designing Media is illustrated with hundreds of images, with color throughout. A DVD accompanying the book includes excerpts from all of the interviews, and the material can be browsed at www. On the surface, just another anthology of interviews.

But the interviews are so good! And the range of voices so rich! I’m an unwilling fan of this book. Nedia Moggridge moves the questions way beyond normal discussions about ‘media. It’s just waiting for design to save it.

Under Moggridge’s watch, Designing Media becomes more than a set of interviews. By the final comments in the last interview, the thrust of its underlying thesis that ‘the printed word medua not disappear’ simply serves as a valedictory to a thesis that the reader has already discovered for themselves. Moggridge assures us that, ‘while digital media is directly responsible for falling revenues mediaa music, film and the printed word, individuals and companies will find ways to carve niches in the new digital domain.


The ways in which media are conceived, formed, and distributed have long undergone change, but now they are in full revolution. There is nobody better than Bill Moggridge to shed an illuminating beam upon the people behind these changes: This book is fun to peruse but even more desiging of thorough digestion, rumination, and reflection. We often hear that mainstream bi,l like television and print are designung.

But one need not look far to see that such claims are simply wrong. People still watch TV, go to bookstores, buy CDs, and so on. In Designing MediaBill Moggridge moggrudge his interviewees show us that something more subtle is happening: Like this book, the future of media is not a vanquishing of monsters but a series of conversations mfdia forms.

Designing Media

Top Reviews Most recent Top Reviews. There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. If you read this collection of interviews with important people in the world of design, technology, and media in or later, you should realize that the interviews were conducted circaand some of the discussions are dated.

For example, there’s an interview about an e-reader that never took off and the Current TV network is gushed over as if it’s going to change the world it was recently purchased by Al Jazeera and no longer exists. Still, the interviews are interesting to read. The questions generally focus on how the interviewees got where they are, where their big ideas came from, their core principles, and how they operate. These are all people who have changed the world to different extents.

The interviews are really just enough to pique your interest; they are neither long nor terribly deep. I found the commentary surrounding the interviews somewhat lacking in depth and analysis. Still, I found myself Googling people and concepts to learn more, so the book as a whole was worth reading. It is well suited for reading piecemeal at the coffee table or before going to sleep.

Great set of interviews with movers, shakers, and thinkers of dseigning media world. Excellent that much of the source interviews etc. Great resource for students of media. Great condition,disk was also included. This is a great book truly explaining the in and outs of the media industry the articles are insightfull and humourous. This is a book I’ve been waiting for.


It’s an entertaining and very informative compilation about the move from mainstream “old” media to the “new” digital media. The book literally speaks for itself by including a great DVD with 17 interviews of everyone featured within. For this book, he identified moggeidge interviewed 37 of the most influential people in the media desiggning.

Designing Media gives a rare look into the work and lives of those who are shaping the digital age. Watching the videos is like having a conversation with these thought leaders in your own living room.

The group includes legends in design, media, technology and communications. Seriously, these are the people who are changing our lives ever day. I’m a businessman and a huge fan of rock music, so it was great to find Roger McNamee, who is both a musician lead guitarist, Moonalice and founder of a successful investment company.

Together, they have created a new Internet based subscription business for Blixa’s band, Einsturzende Neubauten. Blixa may be the international celebrity, but his wife is a creative genius too. I am wondering about some obvious omissions, such as Steve Jobs from Apple.

Then again, maybe the people at Apple were too busy designing the next generation of digital devices to be interviewed for this book. If you are interested in the design, development and evolution of media, this book is a “must read” and the DVD is a “must watch. This book interviews some of the top thinkers and do-ers in the world of media, with Bill Moggridge sharing his thoughts along the way.

Each interview offers insight into our future in terms of anything and everything media related- from new music distribution models to what social networks mean in the long run. If you’re interested at all in what the always connected future holds for us, I highly recommend checking out this book. See all 6 reviews.
