Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working – Pablo Picasso
“You never change things by fighting the existing reality.To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”
– Richard Buckminster Fuller
Weekend – through my eyes.
“Discovery consists not in seeking new lands, but seeing with new eyes.”
~ Marcel Proust
“I never did a day’s work in my life. It was all fun.”
– Thomas Alva Edison
“Create solutions to design problems that are meaningful and memorable.” – Paul Rand
The investigative design process moves from the inside out: “The correct shape is the shape of the object’s meaning.” The Vignelli commitment to the correctness of a design has taken their work beyond the mechanical exercise of devising a form best suited to a given function. They’ve always understood that design itself, in the abstract, could and should be an integral part of function. More than a process and a result, design—good design—is an imperative. “Everything has its own order,” they’ve said. “You can’t take a piece of music and scramble the notes. You can’t take a piece of writing and scramble the words. You can’t take a space and scramble the chairs around.”
Beautiful thoughts by Massimo Vignelli
The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
– Robert Frost
