The Sopranos Design Lesson

UPDATE: This article has been moved to 1over100.com

Sopranos

Michael Beirut has written a bona fide Soprano’s missive that gives all creatives some timely and astute advice. From Client Relationships to Aesthetics, Beirut finds the lesson in The Sopranos.

On commitment:
“I came home one day, shot her four times. Twice in the head. Killed her aunt, too. I didn’t know she was there. And the mailman. At that point, I had to fully commit.”

I heard this back in design school, and I still forget it every now and then: if you’re going to make something big, make it really big. If you’re going to make it simple, make it really simple. Or really small, or really fancy. If you’re going after a project, if you’re trying to win a competition, if you’re serious about getting the job done, don’t bother unless you’re willing to fully commit.

Well written, brilliantly spotted and impeccably researched. Read Don Beirut at Design Observer.

    THE WAY THIS SOPRANO’S PICTURE IS DESIGNED IS NOT ONLY INTERESTING, BUT IT IS ENTERTAINING AND REMINISING TO. FIRST OF ALL THEY WAY THAT THEY DECIDED TO OVERLAP THE EXISTING SOPRANOS WITH A PARADOX OF THE DEAD SOPRANO’S IS INGENIUS. BRILLIANT! I SAY AND LOOK AT HOW THE CHARACTERS ARE GROUPED. PERFECTLY, KEEPING THE IMMEDIATE FAMILY TOGETHER WHILE BREAKING A PART THE FAMILY IN WHICH TONI HAS THE MOST PROBLMES WITH. PERSONALY I LOVE IT ,AND COMPIMENT THE PHOTOGRAPHER.
