I’ve been trying not to do this, but I can’t help myself. It’s about iHateDesign. Dee posted something yesterday that actually made me laugh out loud. Alone. I have to share it. Some of you may not get it. And that’s totally understandable. If you’re not a graphic designer or if you’ve never hung out with one you’re not supposed to get it. Graphic designers notice the gaps between letterforms and are often just APPALLED by it. (If you don’t get it, please feel free to leave a comment to discuss. I once spelled the word Kern, “Curn�? on a test in college. I was a freshman. I hadn’t ever heard the word before. Point is, it’s OK to not know.)
Things like public nudity upset some people, or public drunkenness, maybe even talking during a movie. Graphic designers get upset over ne g a tive spac e. They get upset over non-things in between actual things.
