If you awoke yesterday with the sense that the world had, overnight, become a little less creative and thoughtful, there’s a simple but terribly sad explanation: Bill Drenttel died on Saturday. He was 60 years old. The incisive, charismatic design mind is being mourned and remembered throughout the design world, and we call your attention to this video portrait of Drenttel and his wife and partner, Jessica Helfand, created earlier this year by Dress Code to commemorate the couple’s matched pair of 2013 AIGA Medals.
