Milton Glaser - In Search of the Miraculous

I discovered this great little book ‘In search of the miraculous or one thing leads to another’ by Milton Glaser. He talks about how ideas that are developed for personal or commercial work can cross-polinate or provide inspiration for later projects. He shows that designers just don’t come up with ideas from nowhere. Instead ideas can often come from developments of previous thinking and current interests outside commercial work.

Michael Page exhibition, San Francisco

I came across artist Michael Page this week, and found his latest collection of work, ‘Elan Vital’ quite mesmerizing.

He focuses on evolution, vital force, and the development of organisms, and specifically in this collection focused on creating ‘Pneuma’ – The life force and spirit in us all.

Together these ideas, with his strong colour pallet create a pretty captivating collection. I found it really inspiring, hope you do too!
