    "You can’t start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading your last one."

    The same goes for design. Don’t focus on past successes or failures much, just push ahead to new ideas. (via gregmelander)

“Saul Bass. Before I ever met him, before we worked together, he was a legend in my eyes. His designs, for film titles and company logos and record albums and posters, defined an era. In essence, they found and distilled the poetry of the modern, industrialized world. They gave us a series of crystallized images, expressions of who and where we were and of the future ahead of us. They were images you could dream on. They still are.”
— Martin Scorsese on the “Economic” Genius of Saul Bass

Saul Bass. I love Saul Bass.
