Netflix recently launched the second season of its documentary series about designers and design called Abstract: The Art of Design.
I think it's a must-watch show for designers and non-designers alike. Each episode features a deep dive into a particular designer's process and personal background that gives a strong sense of what drives that person and their design practice.
Each episode of Abstract is a self-contained mini-documentary that reflects the personality and approach of each designer (ranging from costume designers to typographers to toymakers) so every show has its own unique flavor.
I especially liked the shows from the current season that featured toy designer Cas Holman and one of my favorite modern artists, Olafur Eliasson. Highly recommended!
You can view the Season 2 trailer of Abstract below or on YouTube.
