    Do you have a reason for making some strokes on the R and the A so thin they become insignificant, and make the logo hard to read. Not having the serifs on the right side of the I make it look like part...

    ErickShawn
    Hi there,
    I think collection of design inspiration is meaning less.
    If someone do so, he is just collecting a junk. Because, in designing field, you can not claim that old is gold. Every...

    One of my favourites of all time.
    It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" Winnie the Pooh

      Lately it seems that all these famous and talented people whom I've never heard of are dying. I mean no disrespect to Etta James, but I had never heard of the woman until today. A few weeks back some writer named Christopher Hitchens died and, likewise, it was headlines for days, but I knew nothing of the guy.

      It's not exactly as though I don't listen to music or read books I do both all the time. I can't figure out how I completely overlook these people until they're dead. It leaves me wondering what other artistic geniuses I've managed to ignore in my cultural ghetto and who I won't know a thing about until the BBC and this forum announces their deaths.

            Pan, I think I fall victim to the same thing. I kept seeing her name in the news yesterday, and was thinking who is this lady, but as soon as I heard "At Last" it hit me...
            Typos are very important to all written form. It gives the reader something to look for so they aren't distracted by the total lack of content in your writing.

              Heh heh, I was just thinking the exact same thing. I wonder if it has something to do with our location
