Bristol-based typographer Yee Poon (opens in new tab) was so inspired by Sagmeister's musings, that she decided to create a project in response to the book. Taking the best advice she's ever received, she created a delicious project that creates type out of food – paying homage to the 'gut' in her quote.
Showcasing the process of the project with a short video, it's a great insight into how one designer can inspire another. With bright, vivid colours and seamless execution, it's a project Sagmeister would be proud of. What's the best advice you've ever received? Tell us in the comments!
