“Pure, intense emotions. It’s not about design. It’s about feelings.” Alber Elbaz
“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.” F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
I decided to try something new with my photography today and this is the result. I need to keep pushing myself, not only to try new things, but to be a better designer / photo enthusiast / art director ~
“The history of the music industry is inevitably also the story of the development of technology. From the player piano to the vinyl disc, from reel-to-reel tape to the cassette, from the CD to the digital download, these formats and devices changed not only the way music was consumed, but the very way artists created it.” Edgard Bronfman Jr.
“The artist is a collector of things imaginary or real. He accumulates things with the same enthusiasm that a little boy stuffs his pockets. The scrap heap and the museum are embraced with equal curiosity. He takes snapshots, makes notes and records impressions on tablecloths or newspapers, on backs of envelopes or matchbooks. Why one thing and not another is part of the mystery, but he is omnivorous.” Paul Rand, A Designer’s Art
“It took me a few seconds to draw it, but it took me 34 years to learn how to draw it in a few seconds.” Paula Scher (these series of logos belong to a very well-known restaurant, Los Ranchos, established in the 60’s in Nicaragua. As a brand, it is successful, having total acceptance and high esteem of their clients. As a designer, I find it would be great to know the story, the author of these logos. I feel it is sad that designs like these, that have stood the test of time -memorable -is an element of a successful logo- are forgotten or not appreciated to its fullness. Any country or city could benefit from studying the history of such designs and the successful brands they represent.)
