    "A great story beautifully told."
    Ken Carbone, Designer, Chief Creative Director, Carbone Smolan Agency

    “This [film] is about patient and dedicated teaching, about learning to look and visualize in order to design, about the importance of drawing. It is one designer’s personal experience of issues that face all designers, expressed with sympathy and encouragement, and illustrated with examples of Inge [Druckrey]’s own work and that of grateful generations of her students. There are simple phrases that give insights into complex matters, for example that letterforms are ‘memories of motion.’ Above all, it is characteristic of Inge that in this examination of basic principles the word “beautiful” is used several times.”

    Matthew Carter, type designer, MacArthur Fellow

    “This film is absolutely beautiful. I'm so impressed with it and learned so much in such a compact piece. I feel like it picked up where Helvetica left off with the subtle principles of typographical balance and some early history stemming from the human hand. Your wonderful teaching approach comes through loud and clear and stands as an inspiration and model for others including myself. This is fantastic.”

    Luke Geissbuhler, Cinematographer of Helvetica and other films

    "A great documentation of the visual values we hold dear."

    Roger Remington, Vignelli Distinguished Professor of Design, RIT

    "A fine, insightful and educational documentary. It captures Inge’s work as a designer and educator, her thinking and her SEEING, in a wonderful and most perfect way. Truly Inspirational!"

    Hans-Ulrich Allemann, Designer/Educator

  2. How to introduce one of the most influential designers of the 20th century--one whose clear visual language has not only defined product design for decades, but also our fundamental understanding of design's potential and function? We're guessing our "Less and More" book and this video podcast interview is a good start.

  3. Typographer, graphic designer and businessman Erik Spiekermann has created timeless, influential and, yes, Meta-physical work over the past three decades.

    Next to founding MetaDesign and FontShop, the latter being the first ever digital distributor of fonts, and designing more instant classic typefaces than any other, he has been recognized as an outstanding expert internationally as a lecturer and professor.

    Listen to the design genius talk about new visual languages, design processes, the analogies of music and typography, and why we need better client culture in our latest Gestalten.tv video and you will easily realize why. Before heading to new visionary pastures, the bike enthusiast will make a short stop to receive the German Design Lifetime Achievement Award 2011 in February.
