Paul Rand - Legend

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vJthkRrQcfo

The last few days I have been on a course. It reminded me how much I love learning and how inspiring it is. Especially when it is design related! The tutor showed us this video of Steve Jobs talking about Paul Rand. Paul Rand...what a legend. Its kind of sad that these days designers don't have the guts to talk to designers the way Rand did. I love the bit where Steve explains that Paul didn't do options. He solved the problem and expected to be paid for it. It challenged me and encouraged me that I need to have more confidence in myself as a designer. I think I have got a bit used to bending over backwards for the client and as a result the designs usually get watered down or totally ruined. I am going to try and fight for my designs more. Go check out some of Paul Rands work...what a legend!
