Ideal working environment?
A house on the East coast, like the one they used as Dashiell Hammett's house in the movie "Julia". My office is pretty great too.
My first job after college was Harpers & Queen, after 4 years there I was art director.
Signage for a museum of art in a major city or a book about cycling greats to be published by Rouleur, except they are such great designers themselves!
Tibor Kalman, Paul Smith, Charles and Ray Eames, Ian Dury, Miles Davis, Smokey Robinson.
Ian Dury, Miles Davis.
Being told how nice my children are.
"The Way We Wore" by Robert Elms and "The Escape Artist: Life from the Saddle" Matt Seaton.
Local Hero or The American Friend.
Miles Davis "Porgy & Bess."
Get out now before you spend a fortune on attorneys!!
When not designing?
Best seat in the house?
Box at the Hollywood Bowl, good food on the table and Raphael Saadiq on stage!
I wish I had?
An apartment in Paris or a beach house in Oregon.
Looking forward to?
