I attended AIGA’s private screening of “Milton Glaser: To Inform & Delight” tonight and jotted down a few gems from the follow-up Q&A session with Mr. Glaser and Ms. Keys:
(On “artist’s block”) If you don’t tolerate when your toilet is blocked, why should you tolerate when you are blocked? Don’t romantically institutionalize a period of time of bad work. Keep working at it.
Your expectations of reality becomes your reality, so believe the impossible.
There are three ways to get a person to respond:
2) you can appeal to their conscience.
3) you can empathize with them. This one is the most effective.
(On what computers have added to or taken away from graphic design) Make sure you remain the master and the computer remains a tool. Don’t limit yourself by what the computer can do.
