A Very Weird Year. The Glass, always half full. The smaller shots however, came always spilling, left and right.


I feel that as designers, we give up a part of ourselves in favor of the brand, and what is most important to it. We somewhat become parents in creating the identity of a brand, and everything it stands for.

had to have been the topic of the entire year. Coming up in all of my humanities, and in the underlying theories of a good amount of my assignments this year, I learned applying new perspectives are vital to seeing and understanding the world around us.

endgame

‘’NOTHING is funnier than unhappiness,’’ says one of the world’s last survivors in Samuel Beckett’s ‘’Endgame.’’ This is not loose talk. ‘’Endgame’’ is as grim as any classic of the modern theater - far bleaker than its predecessor and companion, ‘’Waiting for Godot’’ - and yet it is monstrously funny.

- Frank Rich, THE NEW YORK TIMES

a play by Samuel Barclay Beckett

(13 April 1906 – 22 December 1989) was an Irish avant-garde writer, dramatist and poet, writing in English and French. Beckett’s work offers a bleak outlook on human culture and both formally and philosophically became increasingly minimalist in his later career.

by Samuel Beckett, is a one-act play with four characters, written in a style associated with the Theatre of the Absurd. It was originally written in French (entitled Fin de partie); as was his custom, Beckett himself translated it into English. The play was first performed in a French-language production at the Royal Court Theatre in London, opening on 3 April 1957. It is commonly considered, along with such works as Waiting for Godot, to be among Beckett’s most important works.
