Thank you, Kaffe Fassett


Kaffe Fassett

Kaffe Fassett is the most original designer I have ever come across. In a never-ending sea of ‘same old, same old‘, his work shines like a beacon of uniqueness and flair. He is also the greatest colourist… EVER.

His approach to design appeals to me greatly as well – no need for painstaking planning and graph paper and zzzzzzzzz… Just get a rough idea, slap on some colour and then let the work do what it wants. The results are spectacular.

And the best thing? Mistakes are just incorporated into the design. His freedom is inspiring, and his utter and complete joy in creating is glorious. Kaffe Fassett isn’t concerned with what’s trendy or fashionable, he just makes what he loves.

Everyone should be able to do that.

Thank you, Kaffe Fassett, for simply doing what you do. Thank you for showing the rest of us how it’s done.
