The Designer Says


  • Description

    Whether musing about the creative process, the merits of failure and criticism, or the challenges of keeping the studio lights on, designers make good, and opinionated, copy. The Designer Says, the follow-up to our best-selling The Architect Says, is a compendium of quotations from more than one hundred of history's leading practitioners. Quotes are paired on page spreads like guests at a dinner party. A designer from the nineteenth century might sit next to one working today or two contemporary designers may strike up a conversation. Listen in as they compliment, provoke, and one-up each other in this lively volume of insights.

    This portable collection makes the perfect gift for designers, students, and anyone curious about the ideas and personalities that shape the art of visual communication.This beautifully designed compendium features quotations from Otl Aicher, Saul Bass, Michael Bierut, Irma Boom, Robert Brownjohn, Matthew Carter, Art Chantry, Ivan Chermayeff, Seymour Chwast, Elaine Lustig Cohen, William Drenttel, Charles and Ray Eames, Ed Fella, Alan Fletcher, Adrian Frutiger, Eric Gill, Milton Glaser, Jessica Helfand, Experimental Jetset, Ellen Lupton, Karel Martens, Debbie Millman, L'szl Moholy-Nagy, Bruno Mari, Paul Rand, Michael Rock, Aleksandr Rodchenko, Paula Scher, Kurt Schwitters, Erik Spiekermann, Jan Tschichold, Massimo Vignelli, and Hermann Zapf, among many others.
