Last time on the podcast we had the legendary Paula Scher chatting with us, and today, we have her equally-esteemed designer and partner at Pentagram, Michael Beirut. Michael’s been with Pentagram for 27 years, and on this episode he talks about the office’s bittersweet move from their location of 22 years to a new office space, reminiscing about his early days at Pentagram and what it’s like to work at Pentagram now. We talk about the delicate balance of making work that, as Beirut puts it, comes from ‘the tension between commercial and creative requirements’, and how to thrive and make better work from rejection.
