    What are some of your favourite design/creativity related quotes? Post them here and we'll see about getting a sticky put together.

    Here's some of mine.

    “Typographical design should perform optically what the speaker creates through voice and gesture of his thoughts.”
    El Lizzitsky

    “To design is to plan, to order, to relate, and to control. In short, it opposes all means of disorder and accident.”
    Emil Ruder

    “Graphic design is a big f*cking club with spikes in it"
    James Victore (speaking about his early politically charged/polemical work)

    (I can't remember the precise quote but it is pretty famous so I'm sure someone will correct me)

    "Design is order given to the chaos that is Art"

    (If that is not word for word, it's damn well pretty close!) :D
