Breaking Bad

“What does a man do, Walter?
A man provides for his family.
When you have children,
you always have family.
They will be your priority, your responsibility.
And a man … a man provides.
And he does it even when he’s not appreciated, respected, or even loved.
he simply bares up and he does it, because he’s a man”
–Gustavo Fring, Breaking Bad

Deliver Meaning

The job of an artist is not only to deliver image, but to deliver meaning–which, on occasion means not delivering image at all.

Links to Massimo Vignelli’s subway map for New York City that was rejected by New Yorkers and notes on the failed project: hint (letting the client dissect a controversial project from its full base of understanding is done at the entire project’s peril).
