WHAT DO I WANT TO BE WHEN I GROW UP?
I am always in the process of growing, if not growing up. I hope I never loose my sense of curiosity and playfulness with regard to my work. In the spirit of recreation here are some on my favorite designers that have survived brilliantly in a capricious industry that craves change as much as maintaining a certain status quo. As my personal redesign progresses I will be hold the brilliance of the following people as a standard to emulate.
Founder and Editor of Flair Magazine (famous for their die-cut cover designs)
Editor-in-chief of Colors magazine
Interview Magazine and everything he ever painted, filmed or said
Vogue Editor, visionary, and mentor to many brilliant designers and artists
Ground breaking typographer, designer and creator of my favorite "lost" magazine, RayGun
Finally no list of this nature would be complete without mentioning the brilliant,
Film posters for Alfred Hitchcock, Otto Preminger, Billy Wilder, Stanley Kubrick and Martin Scorsese
This list is short and many names that should be here are not here. These are the influences of the moment not a definitive list of designers.
