William Morris: March 24, 1834
posted:
I really need to study Morris more because I like his total design aesthetic. Various factors influenced the development of Morris's style and he was a creature of his time. He applied his ideas to type and book design, wallpaper and textiles, furniture, stained glass, terra cotta and he was a tireless visionary promoter of the Arts and Crafts movement. Without turning the clock back too much, artists today can easily exert similar control of their total work. Font design, illustration, prepress and instant publishing via the web or pdf are all accessible disciplines on our desktops. The overarching concern however is whether we craftspeople of today and tomorrow can speak with a loud and consistant enough voice to claim our creative birthright in an increasingly ephemeral, superficial, and frightened world.
