don't confuse art for design.
IMHO, people who bought raygun were buying a realtivley cheap piece of
mass-produced art. a lithograph rather than editorial content.

all the lovely youngsters doing grayscale, psuedo-architectural
flashturbation with 45degree corners cut off everywhichway, and tiny little
pixel-based fonts are doing it for their peers and the recognition of
k10k.net - not for the service of brands, or more importantly - users,
punters, people.

'design is doing the best for the most with the least' - charles and ray

> Jacob Nielson's vision of design ideal

don't confuse dogma and relentless self-promotion for useful thought.
