A Backstage Interview with Michael Bierut Michael Bierut is a partner at Pentagram and a leading voice in the world of design. Michael studied graphic design at the University of Cincinnati’s College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning, worked at Vignelli Associates for ten years and, as I learned from watching him host Command X: Season 3 at the AIGA Pivot Conference, has a charming stage presence and warm sense of humor. He’s also an absolute delight to sit down and speak with. We met with Michael at Pivot and, working under some tight time constraints, scrambled to find a quiet place to interview him in between his hosting duties.
