Day 18 6/19/07
Back at Marymount College, we met Kerry William Purcell. He's written for Baseline and authored a few books by Phaidon as well. Purcell spoke to us about Alexey Brodovich, and how he's researched his life and career. While he is not a graphic designer himself, Purcell spoke to us on how you don't have to actually design to be a credible writer on design. Like any other discipline, design can be researched and written about. Currently, he's working on a massive design history book for Phaidon, and I look forward to its release, although it may take awhile.
