I’ll start this by saying: He’s a terrific guy! He’s funny, witty, amazing to hear him speak but above everything he is one of the LEGENDS, the kind of designer you aspire to. An inspiration to many young and also seasoned designers. With Russian descendants but trained by the great British school of arts, I give you – Michael Wolff.
I was thinking if this legendary designer can be quixotic. If he can be considered “extravagantly chivalrous or romantic” in his entire or at least parts of its impressive work. He pioneered advertising, illustration and graphic design in a time that it was an honour to do so and he was among the few and respected as such. From the red of “Vertigo”, “West Side Story” or “It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World” to “The Shining” yellow or to the colourful world of brands and marks like Minolta, Kleenex, Warner Communications and many more – Saul Bass (1920-1996) had it all – a genius of the design universe.
