Another interview.

An older interview with graphic designer Vaughan Oliver

Pouring over Vaughan Oliver’s 4AD album art in my formative years opened my mind to new music and possibility. His work made me realize I wanted to be a designer. He was a visual poet. His passing is a tremendous loss.

The Efficiency-Destroying Magic of Tidying Up – Florent Crivello

“I’m not suggesting all chaos is good. But when you hear someone suggest we put some order into a system, there should at least be a red light flashing in your head. Before you touch anything, you should make sure that mess is not concealing a deep order“

How plaid became part of Volkswagen Golf GTI history

I've not owned a GTI, but I've long wanted those plaid seats. Great to learn the a little bit of the story behind them and the designer, Gunhild Liljequist. (Sadly, there's not much more information about her on the internet. There needs to be more!)
