Mau is the first-ever feature-length documentary about the design visionary Bruce Mau. The film explores his unlikely creative journey and ever-optimistic push to tackle the world’s biggest problems with design. Over the span of his career, this creative dark horse has completed the transformation from world-class graphic designer to designer of the world. From advising global brands like Coca Cola and Disney, to rethinking a 1000-year plan for Mecca and rebranding nations such as Guatemala and Denmark, Bruce Mau is a pioneer of transformation design and the belief that design can be used to create positive change in our world.

Why You Should See This Film

Mau grew up in the wilderness of Northern Canada without running water. His early life informs much of what he does today. The film tells the story of his humble beginnings in Canada to his sharp rise to fame in the design space. Most of us think of design visually — we imagine a product, something expensive, the work of a singular artist. Bruce Mau doesn’t. For Mau, everything is design and design is everything.
