"I am interested in imperfections, quirkiness, insanity, unpredictability. That's what we really pay attention to anyway. We don't talk about planes flying; we talk about planes crashing." –– Tibor Kalman (1949-1999) Hungarian-born American graphic designer.
I just finished reading Debbie Millman's book of interviews How to Think Like a Great Graphic Designer. Time and again designers would name Tibor Kalman as an influence, a luminary design rebel who died too young.
