It Has Potential

This quote from Ira Glass is one of the all-time best pieces of advice I’ve ever encountered. I have it printed out and tacked to the wall of my cubicle at work.

That said. I don’t want to be a hater, but the arbitrarily deployed 4+ typography styles, force-justified center alignment, and white-on-black text make me think that whoever made the above is still maybe waaaay down at the far end of the taste/talent gap.

    Was just thinking this. All the font fuckery adds nothing.

  2. It’s one of those committed on copy in an attempt to graphicize it, though in the designer’s defense, 12 pt Courier doesn’t much impress these days.

    Glass put into words what most of us felt at one point or another, but couldn’t necessarily state. Brilliant stuff.
