Second helpings: Post from Tees bit on the side

imageThe conference ended and so did our batteries. So to wrap up, the afternoon saw Paula Scher (introduction not needed), Sagi Haviv, partner at Chermayeff, Geismar and Haviv and, the ever entertaining, Chip Kidd share their thoughts, recent work and bookstore advice.

I work with people who will have a conversation with me. Not people who want A, B, C and D.

Sagi Haviv
