Making Beautiful Things, Even if Nobody Cares

The good people at Drawn! have posted a wonderful little clip of designer and filmmaker Saul Bass. Here's the part that got me:

The fact of the matter is that I want everything that I do personally to be beautiful. I don't give a damn whether the client understands that that's worth anything or that the client thinks it's worth anything or whether it is worth anything. It's worth it to me. It's the way I want to live my life. I want to make beautiful things even if nobody cares.
