“Burning Questions” by James Victore

Designer James Victore has a really great Youtube Channel you should subscribe to. It’s called “Burning Questions” and he uses the outlet to directly answer questions sent to him, about life and making good work. The man definitely knows a thing or two, having some of his brilliant posters remain in MoMA’s collection. I should note the image at the top of this post is not his work, it was drawn by his friend, artist Jon Burgerman, for one of the intros.

James and I emailed back and forth a bit and he was as friendly and down to earth as he is in the videos. I asked him to pick out a few of his favourite videos so far and he kindly obliged, adding that he loves reading the heartfelt comments. So if any of the videos strike a chord with you, leave him a message, I know he’ll appreciate it!

Have a look at the videos James selected below:

  • James – you visited us here in Laramie a few years ago. My friend Jake and someone else brought you out to the boonies with a couple shotguns so you could shoot dinner plates out the sky. Then you gave a talk and hosted a bonfire. That was cool. Take notes Boston. Go Yankees.
