The year I discovered Sagmeister


Dave Dye

As much as the endless blogs with ‘stuff’ – read nice images of new designs (this site included) – are great to source and view – blogs that offer insight and knowledge into the design arena are really a cut above. Johnson Banks and Love are fantastic (off the top of my head) and now adding Dave Dye to that. Having never really got into the advertising scene I have to admit I have not heard of him before –  found via @davetrott feed – this is a fantastic blog of a great creative ideas and features concepts, ideas, executions that he has produced over his career…
