In need of advice? Just want to sound off? Opening this volume is like grabbing lunch with a fellow designer to commiserate or celebrate. In its pages, noteworthy designers, both past and present, working in fields ranging from graphic design, fashion, architecture, typography, illustration, and industry product design, sound off on every topic, including deadlines, inspiration, competition, rules, respect, education, and handling criticism and life as a creative soul -- all with a certain amount of irreverence. Their thoughts are boiled down into succinct quotable quotes and one-liners that exemplify their character and demonstrate their philosophy on the world.

Enjoy reading sound bites from everyone from Frank Gehry, David Carson, and Charles and Ray Eames to Frank Lloyd Wright, Paul Rand, Stefan Sagmeister, and Saul Bass.
