Ten Things / Time for some spring cleaning
© 2009 Cynthia E. Wood Ten Things I Have Learned by Milton Glaser, Graphic Designer b. 1929 Part of AIGA talk given in London November 22, 2001 1 YOU CAN ONLY WORK FOR PEOPLE THAT YOU LIKE. This is a curious rule and it took me a long time to learn because in fact at the beginning of my practice I felt the opposite. Professionalism required that you didn’t particularly like the people that you worked for or at least maintained an arms length relationship to them, which meant that I never had lunch with a client or saw them socially. Then some years ago I realised that the opposite was true. I discovered that all the work I had done that was meaningful and significant came out of an affectionate relationship with a client. And I am not talking about professionalism; I am talking about affection. I am talking about a client and you sharing some common ground. That in fact your view of life is someway congruent with the client, otherwise it is a bitter and hopeless struggle. 2 IF YOU HAVE A CHOICE NEVER HAVE A JOB. One night I was sitting in my car outside Columbia University where my wife Shirley was studying Anthropology. While I was waiting I was listening to the radio and heard an interviewer ask ‘Now that you have reached 75 have you any advice for our audience about how to prepare for your old age?’ An irritated voice said ‘Why is everyone asking me about old age these days?’ I recognised the voice as John Cage. I am sure that many of you know who he was – the composer and philosopher who influenced people like Jasper Johns and Merce Cunningham as well as the music world in general. I knew him slightly and admired his contribution to our times. ‘You know, I do know how to prepare for old age’ he said. ‘Never have a job, because if you have a job someday someone will take it away from you and then you will be unprepared for your old age. For me, it has always been the same ever since the age of 12. I wake up in the morning and I try to figure out how am I going to put bread on the table today. It is the same at 75, I wake up every morning and I think, how am I going to put bread on the table today? I am exceedingly well prepared for my old age, he said. 3 SOME PEOPLE ARE TOXIC; AVOID THEM. This is a subtext of number one. There was in the sixties a man named Fritz Perls who was a gestalt therapist. Gestalt therapy derives from art history, it proposes you must understand the ‘whole’ before you can understand the details. What you have to look at is the entire culture, the entire family and community and so on. Perls proposed that in all relationships people could be either toxic or nourishing towards one another. It is not necessarily true that the same person will be toxic or nourishing in every relationship, but the combination of any two people in a relationship produces toxic or nourishing consequences. And the important thing that I can tell you is that there is a test to determine whether someone is toxic or nourishing in your relationship with them. Here is the test: You have spent some time with this person, either you have a drink or go for dinner or you go to a ball game. It doesn’t matter very much but at the end of that time you observe whether you are more energised or less energised. Whether you are tired or whether you are exhilarated. If you are more tired then you have been poisoned. If you have more energy you have been nourished. The test is almost infallible and I suggest that you use it for the rest of your life. 4 PROFESSIONALISM IS NOT ENOUGH or THE GOOD IS THE ENEMY OF THE GREAT. Early in my career I wanted to be professional, that was my complete aspiration in my early life because professionals seemed to know everything - not to mention they got paid for it. Later I discovered after working for a while that professionalism itself was a limitation. After all, what professionalism means in most cases is diminishing risks. So if you want to get your car fixed you go to a mechanic who knows how to deal with transmission problems in the same way each time. I suppose if you needed brain surgery you wouldn’t want the doctor to fool around and invent a new way of connecting your nerve endings. Please do it in the way that has worked in the past. Unfortunately in our field, in the so-called creative – I hate that word because it is misused so often. I also hate the fact that it is used as a noun. Can you imagine calling someone a creative? Anyhow, when you are doing something in a recurring way to diminish risk or doing it in the same way as you have done it before, it is clear why professionalism is not enough. After all, what is required in our field, more than anything else, is the continuous transgression. Professionalism does not allow for that because transgression has to encompass the possibility of failure and if you are professional your instinct is not to fail, it is to repeat success. So professionalism as a lifetime aspiration is a limited goal. 5 LESS IS NOT NECESSARI
Sternberg Woodworking Factory, Norwich, New York
Sternberg Woodworking Factory, Norwich, New York
This photo is a copy of a Norwich newspaper clipping from the early 1900s showing "The Old Planing Mill" in Norwich New, York - of which W.H. Sternberg (1832 - 1906) was the principal owner. Henry C. Hall and Orville L. Field were co-owners. An exact address is not known (indeed numbers may not have yet been assigned to buildings), however the business was on "East Main Street' in Norwich. The business was commonly known as the "Sternberg Sash and Blind Company". At this factory, they made high-quality interior moldings, window sashes, doors, blinds, newel posts, balusters, dressed lumber, pickets and picket fences, lath, shingles and provided services here including scroll sawing and turning as well as designing and drafting services. Approximately 30 employees worked here at the time. They shipped construction materials (mainly throughout the New England area) and fine quality interior wood appointments (newel posts and such) throughout the nation. For a town with a population of only a few hundred in the late 1800s, this was certainly a large and prominent business within the town. W.H. Sternberg was elected Mayor of Norwich in 1864. An exact date of this photo is not yet known but is c. 1865 - 1875. Hearing reports of Wichita's growth and opportunity on the western frontier, Sternberg (along with his wife Catherine and family) moved to Wichita in 1875 and he quickly (within a few months) become the area's leading designer and builder of fine homes and commercial buildings. This was at a time (mid-1880s) when in some years quite literally thousands of buildings were being erected in Wichita in a single year! By some accounts, Wichita was the fastest growing city in the nation and Sternberg built more of Wichita than any other contractor (from 1875 - about 1905). Sternberg's design work was primarily extant on upscale residences vs. commercial structures. Today, there are buildings in Kansas, Missouri and New York that Sternberg designed and/or built which are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Other states such as Illinois and Connecticut are strong suspects for more Sternberg-designed and built structures. Following is a quote of the newspaper article (c. 1908) that accompanied the photo above... "THE OLD PLANING MILL, Which Over Thirty Years Ago Was a Scene of Industry. The accompanying illustration is interesting, showing as it does the appearance of a leading Norwich industry 30 odd years ago, the photograph having been made in 1875. The Chenango canal may be seen in the foreground, having not yet been abandoned. The building is readily recognized as the old planing mill which did not change greatly in outside appearance until the new plant was erected a few years ago by the W.L. Scott Lumber Company. At the time of the photograph, Sternberg & Hall were the proprietors of the industry. Among the employees grouped in the front of the building was James Stack, who worked in the mill then and is still employed there. Other former employees in the picture who still reside in Norwich are Charles Barber of Cortland street, and Clinton Merrill of Mitchell street, the latter having been the engineer. James Sherwood now a resident of Oxford, was another employee who appears in the photograph. The old man conspicuous in the group because of his flowing white whiskers was Mr. Bowker, who built the spire of the Broad Street M.E. Church. The photograph from which the picture was made is the property of Clinton Merrill. Norwich has made many rapid strides in progress since those days. The canal has been abandoned, the present planing mill standing on the site where the State ditch formerly ran through." << End of Article >> It is not known if Sternberg himself is in the image above - perhaps on the front steps. There are three persons on the front steps - those could be Sternberg, Hall and Field (the proprietors), but that hasn't yet been confirmed. A clearer image, made from the photograph itself, will be posted to this photostream soon and compared with confirmed photos of W.H. Sternberg. That may (or may not) yield an answer as to whether Sternberg appears in this photo. It seems likely that he would be in this photo. At the present time (2010) there are only two confirmed photos of W.H. Sternberg known to exist. One of those appeared in the Eagle newspaper and was a grouping of prominent business persons in Wichita, KS. The other is a tin-type photograph of Sternberg and his wife Catherine from c. 1870s. Enlarged duplicates of both of those photos can be viewed at the Historic Sternberg Mansion at 1065 N. Waco Avenue in Wichita, KS. An advertisement for Sternberg, Hall & Company (the business above) on page 18 of the 1869 - 1870 Chenango County Directory stated, "the proprietors of the Steam Planing Mill, East Main Street, Norwich, N.Y., keep a good assortment of Lumber, Pickets, Shingles
