Food for thought‘[...] do not think that good design can make a poor product good, whether the product be a machine, a building, a promotional brochure or a business man. But [...] good design can materially help make a good product reach its full potential. In short, [...] good design is good business.’
Thomas J. Watson Jr., IBM CEO

Impossible Cool — the great ones

September 13, 2009, 9:12 PM

Awe-inspiring photography, thought-provoking quotes—watch and read some of the great ones that lived on this planet on—what better name than—the Impossible Cool.

My favourite quote:
“If you want to have clean ideas, change them as often as you change your shirts.” — Francis Picabia

impossiblecool-mifune Mifune

impossiblecool-ray Ray Charles

impossiblecool-caine Caine

impossiblecool-clint Clint

impossiblecool-sophia Sophia

Style oozes from their persona. You can easily feel that they almost don’t give a damn, that is what makes them so cool, so admirable. As Gore Vidal says: “Style is knowing who you are, what you want to say and not giving a damn.”
