Quote: Tschichold

I revisited some notes I had written in response to reading Anne Burdick’s essay “Neomania” published in Emigre 24. I like to go back to essays like that whenever I feel pressured or overwhelmed to be a certain type of designer. I think most of us can relate to that sort of desperation. Reading an essay or even the newspaper can help assuage our creative frustration and bring a steady footing when “the rapid turnover dizzies the Rational Functionalist in each of us.” (Which we should like to keep steadied, right?)
