Sitting in the library near to the computer , reading MARTI GUIXE book with his sketches(H20 gallery Berlin), becouse i have idea that i dont like sketches by the reason i have no skill to draw by pen.

This guy, Marty, he is reallly great. He is not connected to any design rules.

Hes just watching on his own life and repairing the thing around him for more time-updated and interest-updated form of being. And he is dont care about what design world is.

Maybe this is more personal way to explore design..but rules,rules,rules.

lesson was terrible, im really in a decay before-and-after, My decaying will finish only when i will understood how to think about what i want to do.

Becouse i think that all my time i spend on not effective work about projects of your course.

Ough, beside all this gibberish chit

  1. i have question- could you write for us a 200 termins,words in hebrew which used when we working verbally with design(on classes, auditoriums, presentations). i know it is not your business, but our hebrew teacher refused by the reason that she is not connected to the design.
  2. My blog is i expose there my works from what im doing now, which will not blaming me


Thinking "..this design school maybe just not a place for someone from our group"

Hi Roman,

I'm not really sure I understand your argument. Are you trying to praise a lack of education? ignorance?

Is the experience of a single designer, talented though he may be, enough to throw out all conventional wisdom through the window?

Did you notice that Mr. Guixe's work, unique and subverssive as it is, is always presented in the most aesthetic and correct compositions possible?

Are you aware of the Mr. Guixe's progression over time? - The reason he could formulate his "Ex-Designer" philosophy is exactly because he is a master designer and deeply in touch with all the terms we are learning in class.

Marti Guixe's Website:

Article published regarding Mr Guixe's work:

The picture posted in this entry is of Marti Guixe's "Football Tape : Adhesive tape with a football pattern. Allows you to construct footballs. Works better if you stuff them with sports publications..."

Mr. Guixe can create a Gestalt vision of design because he is very much aware of what is around him, what came before him, how to make what he has to say interesting without the use of words and without being in the room, etc.

I think, dear Roman, that the time has come to wake up, and to realize that without hard work it is impossile to get results. You can start by creating a list of 200 design terms in hebrew with translations into English, Russian, French and Spanish.

You are absolutely correct in thinking that design school isn't the place for some of the people from our group. I feel the same way. However, I intend to give them a chance to prove me wrong until the last day of the semester, when I review the final panel presentations. Also,I intend to spend the time we have together until that day to do whatever it takes to help these people become designers, even if it isn't always pleasant...


Mike PS. I checked you blog out - very good work, I wish you would bring the same energy to our class.
