  • Rick Tharp tribute on Creative Latitude

    Just wanted to make people aware of the article I wrote as a tribute to one of my favorite designers: An introduction - and farewell tip of the hat - to Rick Tharp

    wow, what a nice tribute, Jeff. I would have liked to meet Mr. Tharp. Sounds like he was a great guy, both extremely talented and a lot of fun. What a shame to lose him before his time.

      I consider it a true privilege to be one of the many that met Rick at "The Design Conference That Just Happens To Be In Park City", in 1999, as a budding Design Student. He was a genuine smart ass (meant in a good way.) =) What a great designer, he will be sorely missed, I am truely in shock, as I sit here typing this. =\

      Great Tribute Jeff.

        Truly a great tribute, Jeff. I, too, am saddened by the loss of Mr. Tharp. He was one of my design heroes and will be greatly missed.

          Thanks morea, DesignIt and Lonepine. It was an incredibly difficult piece for me to write - and I had only met him once.

            Met Rick at Miami during the summer between freshman and sophomore years. Special person, and extremely intelligent. Even then his imagination was obvious.

            I cannot imagine what caused him so much grief as to end his life this way, but wanted to thank him for all the laughs in accounting and economics (he wanted these done).

            Assume he's looking down on us and making some amusing comments.

            Miami was a special place in the early 70's, and Rick was one of the reasons we all made our marks on the world.

              It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" Winnie the Pooh

                As mentioned, try other fonts. I think it looks better when turned counter-clockwise, and not leaning back so far as PrintDriver stated. Leaned back it looks to me like an open mouth. Took me a minute...

                Good question. 9 years ago, I wanted to know what uppercase and lowercase font would go well with Trajan. The other day, I needed to know. Again.

                I cannot ever remember a time when Design was called CAD. Technical drawing/drafting, when it moved to computers, was always referred to as CAD. The classes for it were called Computer Aided Drafting....

                I think that using a flagship species would be important for this project. IT doesn't have to be one of the top flagship species, but one that is on a B list would be suitable. Especially since the target...
