    wow, all that college money, and now to find out I didn't even have to be creative to be a graphic designer:

    Well, they're targeting direct mail work.

    If I learned anything during my corporate marketing days, it’s that most designers think of themselves as graphic “artists” first and marketers second. Being creative types, most designers are concerned with one thing – how the piece looks. Many never consider whether the design will help or hinder the sales process. One of the designers on staff came up with a brochure filled with text that was not only light gray but a barely readable 9 point type size. “But it’s so hard to read,” I said. “Yes,” she cooed, “but doesn’t it LOOK fabulous?!”
    That article makes me angry. It's saying that graphic designers don't care about communication and only about how pretty a piece is. Not true. Any good design course will place emphasise on communication not on "prettiness".

              I can't, in fact there was a thread I was in yesterday and the programmer was there and he got booted and the thread dissappeared before my eyes... but if you want, I can PM you the name.

                    That thing almost word for word has been floating around the net for years now. I think it comes in a package of ""crappy stuff to sell from your website to become a zillionaire".

                    I wouldn't be too concerned about it.

                          ha! I've never been able to look at Gill Sans the same way since I read his biography.

                            Damn, I forgot that Gill Sans is the CNSFW font...

                              I used to think Gill Sans was the bomb, but now I prefer Futura. Gonna bash Futura for a bit longer until I find another font to obsess with.

                              Eric's Bio didn't worry me so much. A fonts a font right?
