"Artrageous with Nate" is the name of a web series that seeks to "educate and inspire creativity through interactive episodes combining art, science and history." In this episode, host Nate learns what industrial design is, traveling to Delta Faucet Company to see what ID'er Jordan Bahler does.
They cover why she got into ID, where inspiration comes from, whether design or engineering comes first, and how exactly industrial designers and engineers go back and forth on a project.
(You can skip the last third of the video, where the host attempts to design something himself.)

While the host seems to grasp what our field is fairly quickly, I wonder: Whenever you yourself have had to explain what industrial design is to someone who's never heard of it, how often does it take on average before they "get it?" And did you ever run into that person who just couldn't wrap their head around it?
