In Two-Dimensional Man, Paul Sahre shares deeply revealing stories that serve as the unlikely inspiration behind his extraordinary 30-year design career. Sahre explores his mostly vain attempts to escape his "suburban Addams Family" upbringing and the death of his elephant-trainer brother. He also wrestles with the cosmic implications involved in operating a scanner, explains the disappearance of ice machines, analyzes a disastrous meeting with Steely Dan, and laments the typos, sunsets, and poor color choices that have shaped his work and point of view. Two-Dimensional Man portrays the designer's life as one of constant questioning, inventing, failing, dreaming, and ultimately, making.
Audiobook includes an interview with the author and the editor.

A rust belt Art School Confidential
I love art school stories with a confidential edge. Slightly older than me, Paul went to Kent and I went to nearby Akron. I would spend decades at the same Cleveland based company in a creative department. I worked with many graphic designers over the years who came and went. The majority of them graduated from Kent’s program. I encouraged them to tell stories about the program and their experiences. Akron had some professors that crossed over and back. Two themes always came up: The word “craft” and the work ethic that everything had to be airtight. There’s a good amount of stories about scraping by on a budget, maintaining a beater car, and cheap rent. I don’t know that a person who isn’t a fan of the graphic design process would enjoy it as much as I did.
