On May 3, 2016, Strand bookstore in New York organized a talk between Richard Danne, designer of the NASA Standards Manual, and Pentagram partner Michael Bierut.

The sold out event was a fantastic insight into Danne's creative process and the difficult time he had after the NASA "worm" logo was rescinded in 1992. 

If you were unable to make it to the event (or even if you were), you can now watch the full video here.
