The quote in a fuller context can be seen in an interview excerpt here.


ORIGINAL: By Pentagram, an independent design firm, based on a quote by Tibor Kalman. He was a graphic designer known for provocative products, notions, and concepts like the paperweight made to look like paper or an image of Queen Elizabeth in a different skin color. He passed away in 1999. A nice profile of Tibor and his work can be found at the American Institute of Graphic Arts' (AIGA) site.
