It is hard to believe that there are no more printed releases to PRINT Magazine. The 2017 Winter Edition was the last hand-touchable copy of America's Graphic Design Magazine. My relationship with PRINT started in 1974 when I was a student at the Budapest Art and Crafts Academy. In that year our University was also invited to participate in the Print Student Cover Design Competition. I drew two works for the competition, and one of them, depicting insects that resembled letters, was the first in the competition. The reward was nothing else but I got the magazine for free for three years. Let me remind you, I lived in Budapest, in Hungary, on the other side of the Iron Curtain, and the sheet came from the free world. The postman came in every second month and I could see and read what happened in the field of the poster, of the illustration, of the typo-graphic design. Later, I was selected as one of the representatives of Hungary in numerous special issues of the magazine, the European Design Annuals. In 1994 Carol Stevens, one of Print's editors, and professor György Haiman published a rather long article on my works: "Smiting the Eye". I was also involved in the compilation of the Magazine's fiftieth anniversary with this title, "Print Student Cover Winners: Where are they now?" I knew many famous artists from the pages of Print Magazine before I met them in reality. For example Kálmán Tibor, Milton Glaser, Paula Scher. Probably due to my work published in Print I've been able to work on several American jobs and I could work on papers such as the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and Scientific American. Also Marzena, the Owner of Marlena Agency saw my works in Print Magazine and decided to invite me to his company. Thank you so much PRINT! Bye-bye.
