“All my commercial work is inspired by my artwork. There is a constant interplay between work I do for clients and for myself. I am also finding that what seems to be happening is that my work is tapping into a universal idea that applies to all things. The universal idea seems to put the exhaustive design practice to shame. Sometimes I guiltily think of those images of Saul Bass filling a room with sketches for a logo design. Teams of designers slaving over the creation of a single image. It’s not like that for me.”
