We continue the interview with Ed Fella discussing the differences between art and design. Ed explains how we don’t have any problems with distinguishing art. But the general public does have a more difficult time telling the difference between a kind of ordinary conventional graphic design and stuff that’s special or that’s on a higher end. We wonder what Ed thinks about the 21st century graphic design, with a new global esthetic already emerging. We end this part talking on post-modernism versus modernism. In particular about his big debate with Massimo Vignelli back in the 1990s. Born and raised in Detroit we ask Ed about his feelings on the decline of the city. We also discuss the change in the usage of certain tools in the history of the profession, where we use more and more smart tools in stead of so called ‘dumb’ tools. Because Ed never used any digital means in his work, he feels he can’t compare a digital piece of work with an analog piece of work. We end the interview with Ed explaining why he would like to be a bodysnatcher… Recorded at the Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles, California.
