Send us a voice message

To be featured in one of The Mic’s monthly episodes, please submit a voice message of up to 90 seconds that describes your design story as it relates to one of the series topics. For each monthly episode, two designers will be selected to be interviewed by The Mic host Debbie Millman and have the opportunity to tell their stories in greater detail. Select submissions will also be showcased on DesignTV by SANDOW (reaching an audience of 11M+).
