You ever order soup at a restaurant and get a bowl that’s mostly broth?

While I was studying Visual Communications one of my instructors suggested I try drawing like Giacometti. I studied his work and a whole new way of seeing and expressing what I saw opened up for me. I have drawn like that with some success ever since.

A couple of things I love about this short 7 min. video. How she describes her process as taking 1 second and 34 years and how she misses the old days of hand done comps, press down type and using one’s hands instead of the computer. I miss those days too. The days when design was a craft and one learned typography by drawing the letters.

And it’s fast, right? We’re obsessed
with efficiency, and sometimes we
forget how much faster drawing is.

My third students [at SVA] aren’t
allowed to use computers. It really
frustrates them because they don’t

InDesign, and you get a box, and you
type a letter in it. And you make it
this big. Then you make it this big.
Then you make it this big. Then you
make it this big. Then you move it
over here. Then you make it red. Then
you make it this big. And it’s like:
You’re not designing! You’re
organizing. That’s easy. Worry about
that later.
