Fast Company magazine (right) has long been a good source of information about contemporary design from a business point of view. Their site currently has a useful interactive infographic with their take on 50 of the most influential designers. The matrix (left) tracks designers from the virtual (websites and information) to the physical (cars and even spaceships). Thinkers wield influence through writing and leadership, while makers exert it through their work.The Infographic was designed by Kristina Dimatteo.
While everyone's list of influential designers would include different people, this infographic is a good way to get caught up on what is happening in the design world. Click on the heading above to go to the infographic. Click on the names of the designers to activate information about them.
