Obsessions and Influences: Bradbury Thompson

I have a handful of early design influences. The designers I discovered before I decided I would be a designer too. The designers that made me want to be a designer. Bradbury Thompson is one of them.

Communication Arts said of Bradbury “When it came to the blending of photography, typography and color, nobody did it better than Bradbury Thompson… In his own quiet way, he expanded the boundaries of the printed page and influenced the design of a generation of art directors.

Obsessions and Influences: Diana Vreeland

Out of the blue one day, a creative director of mine asked, “Do you know who Diana Vreeland is?” No, I replied. “Well, you should.”And that was all.
