Vaughan Oliver – Interview Magazine
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.
Not everything was perfect in 1995, but I think we’ve lost something on the way.

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!)
