Post Different kind of help.

I'm about to finish my semester like Graphic Designer, and my Teacher [ ] want us to quote 3 Graphic Designers, for our Term Papers... Do you know some quotes? [I'll be in charge of the Bibliography]

Thanks!

Don't know if this is of use for you, but that's what I tell me customers when they ask me about why a picture should be retouched:

Looking at a person or a thing, your eyes and your brain automatically adapt the image you see to the current environment. A camera does not know how to do it and merely stores incoming light rays on a piece of film. Hence, looking at a photo your brain tries to adapt the picture to the current environment making a flower look blue in bad light conditions while you'd always consider it to be green if you're standing right next to it. Also, your brains does not only memorize a flat and steady 2D image of a person but a living and moving object. Thus you will always "filter out" the bad views and replace them with the better memory.

This is where a retoucherts job begins, not to change a persons or objects look, but instead to make an image look as if you were standing right next to it.


More or less

Don't know of any quotes off hand. In fact I couldn't have come up with the names of any graphic designers! (Not my area of expertise.)

After a little surfing with Google, came up with a couple nuggets that might get you going...

1. See partial William Morris quote about 1/2-way down here:

- - - - - - - -

2. Google search key: "famous graphic designers"

This looked promising: "names" of famous graphic designers. Google each name until you find relevant quotes...

Good luck on your paper. Much better you than me!
