Louise Bourgeois is one of the world’s most respected sculptors. Over a long career she has worked through most of the twentieth century’s avant-garde artistic movements from abstraction to realism, yet has always remained uniquely individual, powerfully inventive, and often at the forefront of contemporary art.

Only recently coming across his work I was immediately impressed with the aesthetic qualities of it. On the very first glance it engages you in to want to know more about it. In advertising or brand identity or even poster work this is essential i feel. David Carson couldnt do it better if he tried, not to mention his almost typographic collage style of layout which apparently ‘breaks all the rules of graphic design’. Maybe it does, maybe it doesnt but the thoughts his work provokes are often the most creative.
Is being savvy and creative wrong or should one stick to the rules…
