Carson influenced thousand of young designers who saw his amazing compositions, his strange positioning of images and written words, his font manipulations were sublime , his retouching of images to fit his view of the page, of the world, was brilliant. He broke every rule and disregarded any industry standard as the only important thing was his vision, and he felt in every fiber of his being if the headline is in the right place or should it be tilted and pushed to the side, he just felt it. He was a true artist.
STILL not clear how that is a bad thing? All you have to do is just take a look at all the designers that tried to follow carson and gave us over a decade of dead marketing-young polished-dirt crap that was trying to be art but was nothing more that idiots enjoying the fact there are no more rules, where everything goes in the hope people will think it is sophisticated and clever, it's for young people, you don’t understand, this is how it is supposed to be.
Well no. it isn’t.
