In his reletivly short career (so far) Kurt has accomplished a lot and certainly made his mark on culture. As art director of the new Interview Magazine he, along with Richard Turly defined a new and experimental look, one of the freshest of any legacy titles that I know of. He also runs a zine publishing house called TXT Books that continues to innovate graphic language and push everyone's vocabulary forward. And like several other guests on this show he worked on Turley's experimental video graphics department that did some of the the most energetic, demented and avant garde television ever produced by a big network. We get into all of this and more, including how he came up with the Civilization Magazine angel where it came from and how he keeps it fresh. A great chat with a designer I truly admire.
