It's hard for graphic designers to stay inspired when they're constantly working on deadline. Inspirability gives them a fresh look at how to keep those creative fires burning in the real world, with: Interviews with 40 design luminaries, including Stefan Sagmeister, Paula Scher, Milton Glaser and Margo Chase; pictures the designers took of themselves and their offices, as well as samples of their design work; revealing insights into what inspires each designer on a day-to-day basis. For English's contribution, see RANTS. This book offers an original take on one of the most requested topics by graphic designers.
I am writing because some words that you wrote in the inspired green book have had an impact on my life. I have been practicing design for over 15 years, very locked, lethargic by of my own fear of being creative, to the point of thinking in quitting and leave all this love for creation behind, today walking with nothing in my mind other than getting a coffee I stopped at a library and as usual I browsed the design section and found this book, I got touched by key works from all of you, but I am writing to you because was in you profile that I found humanity integrated with design, I mean, you give it a spiritual purpose, a meaning in transforming this worlds and inspiring others. This almost made me cry, it suddenly touched my heart, I realized the purpose of what I do and why I should be doing it.
