Thanks for posting this. I let out an audible “Ohhh” at the last line.
Great article, really miss the days of tactile design – would have loved to study under Vignelli.
Paula Scher tonight @ FIT !!
great post, thanks.
I am reading articles from top to bottom. So I read about Pepesico/Tropicana’s packaging change shortly before this. I can’t help but feel that Mr. Bierut sums up what went wrong for Tropicana.
“Still, I wonder if we haven’t lost something in the process: the deliberation that comes with a slower pace, the attention to detail required when mistakes can’t be undone with the click of a mouse.”
Thank you! Your remarks have been sent to Khoi.
