Language Casts a Shadow

Felt & Wire, a website brought to us by the people who create Mohawk papers, has a bunch of interesting features. Interesting to people who are interested in creativity, that is.

This one in particular, an interview with Stephen Doyle of New York design firm Doyle Partners, looks into the interplay of content and form. A sampling of quotable quotes:

"Books are where ideas come from."


"I started taking out the binding and the pages and setting the words free."


"Remember, metaphor means to carry something from one place to another."


"I'm just building my own little world out of language, to see what happens."



Go thou and do likewise, and by thou I mean I.
