Illustration Friday: Clutter
Fellow designers, I ask you, why do I always see font clutter and lack of kerning in graphic design? Over the years, I have noticed artists and designers moving away from using materials and methods to do their design work. Too often, the project brainstorm time, design time, and iterative process time is replaced with an immediate jump into production. Creativity never really happens — just production. The design process is watered down to simply a decorative art. The computer has discounted the craft of the human hand. If “everyone can do it”, then our typography should be perfect.
