  6. 6. Carson’s Philosophy • Carson is all about breaking the rule. He is constantly changing public views on graphic design and commercial art. He had what could be described as a very anarchist style in the 90’s. • David Carson’s philosophy is the way he comes up with his ideas and creates his work. Before starting a design, he’ll read the article, analyze the product and listen to the music. From there he gets a feel for whatever the topic is, and he tries to crate that visually and emotionally through his art and typography.
  7. 7. Example
  8. 8. What Should Influence Designers • Picture of Carson & his quote. • ‘I think it’s really important that designers put themselves into the work. No one else has your background, upbringing, life experiences, and if you can put a bit of that into your work, two things will happen: you’ll enjoy the work more, and you’ll do your best work.’ - David Carson
  9. 9. Who Carson has influenced: • He largely influenced the dirty-grunge movement in design trends of the 90s. • Carson also influenced many artists, because he shook up the type world. • Instead of following all of the typographic rules, Carson broke them all. Thus, enabling other artists to do new and inventive things that they wouldn’t have done before.
