The Picasso way.

 Pablo Picasso AIGA design quote

“Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist”

When Perrin Drumm, Editorial director at AIGA, invited me to create five design quotes for the AIGA´s Eye On Design blog I never hesitated. I was well aware of AIGA and the support that they give to the design community. Saying yes was easy, but to choose five quotes of wisdom was hard. Finally I chose this old Picasso quote and four others. So true words – how can you break barriers if you don´t know them? The final design you see here originates from a hand-drawn sketch. The lettering was scanned and converted to vectors and then finally brought into Adobe Photoshop for effects.
