"What actually drove me to a therapist was that I had a very unhealthy obsession with laundry."
"When I was growing up, designers were anonymous. They didn't do schtick."
"At the end of the day, I would pound them into oblivion and look forward to the next day when I could recreate the world."
"I wanted to make wonderful things; things that other people liked, things that were important and mattered."
"A famous designer is like a famous electrician."
"It was time to take stock, check my shoes, buy nice clothes, live comfortably for a while, and see the world again."
"The sort of weird realization I got at Pentagram-once I was in-was that they really wanted me to recant and see that they were the one true church."
"We should have answered each other's questions, because I knew your answer, and I'm sure that you know mine."
"I try to approach everything as a 'god job.'"
"The same sensitivity you can have with an A4 sheet does not apply to people."
"I thought I was going to make my fortune being like Charles Schulz."
"Those are the closest moments to sex in graphic design."
"I'm too obtuse one day, too vapid the next. Too abstract and intellectual. Too cultivated. Not cultivated enough."
"After my mind has done its job, Mr. Hand takes over."
"I would tell myself that I was not going to be embarrassed calling someone for the third time in a month."
"I would like to get back my love for graphic design, because I think I've lost it."
"I certainly danced a few rounds with the devil in my career, and he often took the lead."
"At that moment, I felt that Milton Glaser was on par with William Shakespeare and Julius Caesar."
"Am I too concerned with conventional notions of beauty and good taste?"
"Love is a cake that comes in layers."
