Your work, and specifically your work for Nine Inch Nail’s ‘The Fragile’ is what encouraged me to study design.
I now pursue a career as a freelance motion designer.
In your TED lecture you ask, ‘if you could afford to, if money wasn’t
an issue, would you be doing that same work?’
I am so lucky because my answer is yes.
Just above my desk at home (where I work most of the time) is a framed copy of the cover art you did for ‘The Fragile’. The album itself had a profound impact on me and I’m still a huge fan of Trent’s to this day. Your work had just as a heavy an impact and I cant think of a single piece of artwork that stirs up as much emotion as that cover.
