Death Trip

June 6th, 2007 | 2 Comments

My friend who is a wonderful photographer wrote to me today: “I keep seeing Maersk trucks around — love the star and the blue color and thought you might find inspiration in it as I do.”

Yes, I love the Maersk logo and have been inspired by it. It is a mighty fine thing to see on trucks and trains as one drives along.

And so my friend’s email triggered some crazy design experimentation this evening, the fruits of which you see here.

I just cranked up “Death Trip” from Raw Power, by Iggy & The Stooges. At 6 minutes and 07 seconds, it’s one of the most repetitive songs ever — and I played it over and over and over and over and over again, all 6 minutes and 07 seconds of it, until I finished this composition.

Must stop listening to Raw Power. Three days and counting. It’s changing how I think.
