401 Design Meditations


In need of advice? Just want to sound off? Opening this volume is like grabbing
lunch with a fellow designer to commiserate or celebrate. In its pages,
noteworthy designers, both past and present, working in fields ranging from
graphic design, fashion, architecture, typography, illustration, and industry
product design, sound off on every topic, including deadlines, inspiration,
competition, rules, respect, education, and handling criticism and life as a
creative soul—all with a certain amount of irreverence. Their thoughts are
boiled down into succinct quotable quotes and one-liners that exemplify their
character and demonstrate their philosophy on the world.

Enjoy reading sound bites from everyone from Frank Gehry, David Carson,
and Charles and Ray Eames to Frank Lloyd Wright, Paul Rand, Stefan Sagmeister,
and Saul Bass.
