Why Don't You Make Me A Sketch


A video on the classic Gastrotypographicalassemblage and other work by long-time CBS design director Lou Dorfsman, who was recently celebrated in a month-long exhibition at Kemistry Gallery in London.
Creativity is essentially a lonely art.
It is in reality the ability to reach
inside yourself ...and drag forth from your very soul an idea
–Lou Dorfsman (1918–2008)

Truly truly one of the greats.
For your interest- hidden in this link is a 1985 Lou Dorfsman talking a little bit about his time at CBS, and of course the Typographicalassemblage.
