…’nuff said…

…though the story is very cool:

think-make-think’ by Clifton Burt (at 20×200, Jen Bekman’s great virtual gallery of affordable art)…was inspired by a haiku graphic designer John Maeda “quietly posted on his blog…Over the next few months, that haiku often found its way to the forefront of my mind. When our studio acquired the remnants of a discarded arrow sign, it was clear to me that think-make-think was a perfect fit, both in form and function.

I have fond memories of my wife, Kate, Will Bryant and I digging through a Mississippi junk store in an old railroad warehouse on the rumor that there were arrow-sign letters in there… somewhere, if we could find them.”


With heartfelt thanks to Pamela Hovland!
