Khoi Vinh: On the Grid

We sat down with Khoi Vinh, former Design Director of NYTimes.com and founder of Mixel, to discuss the subject that has made his work most noteworthy: the grid. And in his case, the “g” almost deserves to be capitalized. The result is an illuminating conversation about Khoi’s plans for the future, first interest in the field of design, and even the grid’s complex relationship with emotion.

Color Machine collaborators Jordan Alport and Raafi Rivero produced this piece, which was directed by Raafi. The interview was filmed at our Brooklyn studio, while the many grid-like structures of New York City serve as visual proxy for grids on the web and everywhere else.
