1. Stefan Sagmeister interview. Record cover designs will always be superior to film posters.
‘I’m somewhere in the middle when it comes to how much newness do I want in my life and work, and how much consistency. I’ve known people that want that newness all the time and I think that I’m not that radical.’
Future for graphic design: ‘Anything that’s possible to be animated will be animated. I think that the printing technology in the 3D world will play a bigger role, or will introduce and make it much easier for graphic designers to do products because again it’s that same space. Or I would say that that printing technology will continue to play a big role as far as individual execution, because inkjet will take over more and more spaces. It means that you can do something that’s much smaller in run and much more individual in their outlook. So my assumption would be that custom-made, low-run, high-end projects will play a bigger role considering specifically that only very specialised things will have the desire and the need to be a physical object.’
2. Anticipating design. Too much choices is a problem.
3.The first thing in design is..noticing. As human beings, we get used to “the way things are” really fast. But for designers, the way things are is an opportunity … Could things be better? Ted talk by Tony Fadell.
