I think graphic design is a very unique phenomenon. It is difficult to define. As soon as we answer the question «what is graphic design,» it becomes like art. But then what is the difference between the designer and Michelangelo. The difference is that Michelangelo combines spirit and brush, and the designer combines mind and soul. The designer and the artist are somewhat similar, but their paths diverge as soon as they get to work.
The artist’s task is to rise to high. The task of the designer to see the present.
