There ARE bad fonts, and even worse designers — both a huge waste of time. But criticizing them is the most insignificant waste of it all.
We know talent and self confidence lead to a successful & productive career. They can also spawn self-indulgence & years of unoriginal work.
Stop scraping the bottom of the barrel. Show us something different.
The more designers complain about font prices, the higher they go on the list of ‘whiny brats’ and lower on the list of ‘ideal customers’.
There’s something pervey about designers who see work they like and think ‘I’m gonna do that & better!’. Do they wear trenchcoats & shades?
The current generation of graphic designers know too little about the history from which their craft derives. They use a visual language without knowing who developed that language and the process behind it.
Mieke Gerritzen from her essey in the book “I Don’t Know Where I’m Going, But I Want To Be There”
The money men did not weep, because the great ones are impossible to deal with, they’re a pain in the ass because they know that if they do their jobs properly, if they just once get it right they can actually lift the human spirit, take it to a higher place.
Woody Harrelson in “Indecent proposal” – referring to the death of the architect Louie Kahn.
There are typefaces that were born fulfilling a Demand. There are indeed a few which wouldn’t have existed without a Need. There are many typefaces which followed a muse and a Play; and there are those that wouldn’t have been made without a helping hand from Jealousy and Greed.
Grids do not exist in a vacuum. They exist in relation to the content.
We never start with a grid. We start with an idea which is then translated into a form, a structure.
Linda van Deursen
Someone asked me; So what is your target audience? I said: my target audience expects More for The Same amount, rather than The Same for Less.
