Isn’t that what most design is about – making something seem different from what it truly is? That’s the point at which I began to worry about what we designers, who are very skillful and have powerful tools at our disposal, are doing in the world – what role we are playing – making the filthy oil company look “clean,” making the car brochure higher-quality than the car, making the spaghetti sauce look like it’s been put up by grandma, making the junky condo look hip. Is all that okay, or just the level to which design and many other professions have sunk? – Tibor Kalman, Print Magazine, 1997
