  1. I feel like the Michael Croxton “Sharing My Ideas Makes Them Better” Project is a blatant rip off of Stefan Sagmeister. Even the name of the project is ripped off. Things I have learned, that is just a shortened version of Steven’s Latest book, “Things I have learned in my life thus far”. Right down to creating a separate image for every word in the phrase. I’m all for getting inspiration but not for copying others work.

  2. Hi Mikey, I should have given more context in the post (didn’t just because it was for quick links)…the project was actually done for Stefan Sagmeister’s class in the SVA MFA program so it most was definitely based off Sagmeister’s project.
