Famous quotes containing the words famous, graphic and/or designers:

    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    Speed is scarcely the noblest virtue of graphic composition, but it has its curious rewards. There is a sense of getting somewhere fast, which satisfies a native American urge.
    James Thurber (1894–1961)

    The designers [of the 1930s] were populists, you see; they were trying to give the public what it wanted. What the public wanted was the future.
