There are professions more harmful than industrial design, but only a very few of them. And possibly only one profession is phonier. Advertising design, in persuading people to buy things they don`t need, with money they don`t have, in order to impress others who don`t care, is probably the phoniest field in existence today. Industrial Design, by concocting the tawdry idiocies hawked by advertisers, comes to a close second. Never before in history have grown men sat down and seriously designed electric hairbrushes, rhinestone-covered file boxes, and mink carpeting for bathrooms, and then drawn up elaborate plans to make and sell these gadgets to millions of people.
Just in case you ever foolishly forget; I’m never not thinking of you.
How stupid of me; to think I was the only flower in your garden.
