Daily Dose. David Carson – All for a Few Good Waves

David Carson is arguably the world’s most well known graphic designer. All For a Few Good Waves is a short documentary portrait offering a raw glimpse into the life and work of David, an uncompromising genius, who refuses to be anyone but himself.

After a career as a top ranked pro surfer and high school sociology teacher, he rose to prominence in the 90’s after art directing Transworld, Beach Culture and Ray Gun Magazines before going on to start his studio. With no formal design training, Carson took the design world by storm, upending conventions and breaking traditional rules he didn’t even know existed.

Sins

“Everything at some point has been declared the root of all evil.”
― Criss Jami, Killosophy

Though the sins have fluctuated over time, the currently recognized list includes
pride, greed, lust, envy, gluttony, wrath and sloth. There is a parallel tradition of seven virtues.
The seven deadly sins are called “capital” because they are the origins of other vices.
This is my visual poem.

Make sure to watch with the headphones on!
