Milton Glaser Quotes from Creative Mornings

Here is a little roundup of my favorite quotes from today’s Creative Mornings, with design legend and all around inspirational thinker Milton Glaser. Check out more photos from the event in the Creative Morning’s Flickr Pool. If you have any other quotes that resonated with you please leave them in the comments section and I would love to add them to the post.

“Certainty is a closing of the mind. To create something new you must have doubt.”

“Fail more often in order to find out what you’re capable of learning.”

“Color is one of those subjects you never fully learn.”

“Failure and ambiguity are hard concepts to sell to a client who just wants to sell more cans of tomatoes.”

“The act of making things that move the mind is our deepest aspiration in seeking the miraculous.”

- Milton Glaser

    Jeffery, thanks for the kind words. I use http://www.1and1.com for both hosting and domain reg. They have decent prices and pretty solid customer service. Not quite award winning, but they have been pretty solid for me over the years.
