KALMAN / 2 / “I will find a city, find myself a city to live in….”

The lyrics from this Talking Heads song from the album “Remain In Light”, whose cover Tibor Kalman created with M&Co., surely resonated with the young designer. Fleeing the Soviet Invasion in Hungary with his family and moving to the United States when he was only eight, he found himself transplanted in Poughkeepsie, New York, a world apart from whence he came and where he was headed. As a boy in Poughkeepsie, Kalman felt pushed to the fringe of his social circles because he didn’t speak English and was thought of as a “geek”. But it was that very isolation that Kalman would later credit with informing his rogue design sensibility.
