This reminds me of Neville Brody.
Neville Brody had a very big impact upon us during our college years. Luckily we discovered him early enough to either quit or to forever commit to Graphics. I chose to commit, although I found my self utterly disheartened after my visit to his 1st exhibition at Elephant & Castle (1988). There I saw computer graphics before computers were invented and sensed that Neville's work could never be surpassed.
A true Graphic Design genius who undoubtedly opened the path to contemporary graphics.
