I thought the documentaries Helvetica and Objectified were really a pleasure to watch, not just for the design-nerdy. They focus on things we deal with in our everyday worlds—signage, bad bathroom door design, silly chairs, delightful appliances—and I thought it was really rewarding and fun to finally have the chance to think about all the little things in our lives that take up our days.
So it’s great to finally hear what Gary Hustwit’s last design-trilogy film will be: Urbanized. As many of my friends and I have migrated inevitably from the country to the city, of course we’re all thinking about the perks and blows of city life & design. Urbanized will come out in 2011. You can read an interview about the big news here. Go Gary!
