Smart Quote #11: Not Art

Smart Quote #11: Not Art "For me, the mix of what we deal with as designers -- the mix of words, images and messages -- this is what I was meant to do. I like the fact that design is audience-related. I like the fact that it's not "art" and that you're typically collaborating with other people."
