The fact that most people don’t understand what graphic design means… has that helped you?
Cause if you decide to define something for yourself it helps if other people don’t have a definition for it. I understood early on that if I call myself a designer I can do whatever I want…
I can direct a commercials, I can do an animation I can create installations in museums, I can have shows I can do all these things…
For years I’ve held up Ray and Charles Eames for their amazing ability, as Designers, to do whatever is they want. Direct a film? Yes. Design a typeface? yes. A Chair? A house? Yes of course. A pattern, a bicycle? for sure. Anything. Everything.
This guy gets it. This is my goal, my foil against specialization. If it is ideas, creative, aesthetics, storytelling? Yes, in fact, I can.
