Designers on the Ice Floe

“We aren’t the first designers of the world. Many have come before us”. Paul Scrivens on the need to look back in order to move forward.

Steven Heller notes that the young, predisposed to “send out the old on metaphoric ice floes” are keen nowadays to tap into an astute sense of craft. Heller cites several exemplars, including Ladislav Sutnar (One of Sutnar’s favorite comments was: “Without efficient typography, the jet plane pilot cannot read his instrument panel fast enough to survive“)

Heller follows this by devoting an article to Ladislav Sutnar, A Father of Web Design, Kept Alive by His Son, talking to Los Angeles architect and city planner Radislav Sutnar about his ongoing efforts to preserve the legacy of his father.
