Karrie Jacobs on style

“Everything you do is garbage. First of all, with the possible exception of books, and record jackets, everything you design is destined to be thrown away. The second way has to do with another type of disposability. Style is the most disposable thing that there is. Graphic design is largely used as a way of giving things style. This used to be a content country, but now it’s a style country. Perhaps the appropriate name for the age we live in is not the information age, but the style age.”

— Karrie Jacobs (1990)
