"The artist's duty is to balance mystical communication with the labour of creation".
It really spoke to me, especially when I think about brand work. At the end of weeks of analysis, exploring options and labouring over word choices, what comes out is a mystical result: simple communication that often seems remarkable in its clarity and resonance with the values of our clients. It's a proud moment.
Patti was talking about drawing, poetry and collage, and I like to think of our work as those things too!
Many of Patti's photos were a collaboration with artist and photographer Robert Mapplethorpe.
