Alvin Lustig: Don't Design Down

Alvin Lustig was an amazing American graphic designer, typographer, and interior designer from the 40's and 50's who only lived until forty.

“The words graphic designer, architect, or industrial designer stick in my throat, giving me a sense of limitation, of specialization within the specialty, of a relationship to society and form itself that is unsatisfactory and incomplete. This inadequate set of terms to describe an active life reveals only partially the still undefined nature of the designer.” - Alvin Lustig
