Design Writer David Barringer on why "There's Nothing Funny About Design"
By Rich Fisher
Tulsa, OK – David Barringer is surely one of our best and funniest writers on design. He talks with Rich Fisher about his collection of essays, "There's Nothing Funny About Design" (Princeton Architectural Press), which critically examines everyday design from the "promiscuousness of the letter X in our culture," to how the cautionary colors of red and yellow have been adopted by the fast food industry, to how evolution is portrayed with fish symbols and the ape-to-man chart.
