The world lost a friend this weekend. Clarence Clemons touched people through his music and his kind heart. Design and music are so closely linked as forms of expression and Clarence used his music to convey his feelings to us like few people could. His lifelong partnership with Bruce Springsteen gave us all a soundtrack that will allow us all to relive the important moments of our lives forever. I only saw him perform once, but Nancy, DW’s design director, had the pleasure of meeting him and speaks of him fondly. “We are all very sad. He was truly larger than life, not only in stature, but in his spirit and music. When he smiled he lit up the room and we all smiled with him.”
Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.
