Subject: The End of Print


Subject: The End of Print
I can’t believe I’m actually typing this because who knows if you even check this particular email-but here it goes. My name is Meghan and I’m a graphic design student from Ohio. A few months ago an assignment in one of my classes was to redesign a publication the way that another designer would do it. So I searched the web and found a few of the classic designers, and even though their designs were stunning they didn’t really interest me. So I decided to look at some design books instead. When I finally saw your book I freaked out because I couldn’t figure out where the title was, which was the craziest and yet most wonderful thing in the world to me…that you could create a response like that with something such a small detail. For the first time I felt something click. Since then I’ve probably “read” every page of The End of Print at least 15 times now, and I find new things in it each time that I never noticed before. Reading your book has changed my style into something that I can’t explain, which is what I love about your designs. Before I saw your work type was secondary-and more like a chore. But now it’s like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders-and it doesn’t have to be anything, and I’m finally free. I don’t think it should even be called type anymore. You have been a such a huge inspiration to me, I’m curious as to what inspires you-or if your ideas just smack you right in the face. I would also love to come to a workshop of yours but I have no idea how to go about doing it-I do hope to one day meet you in person.
