Paul Rand's Business Card

Couldn't be more perfect.

Curses

Here's an article that makes me not feel so bad for being bothered constantly by what I consider to be the bad/lazy design of everything: toilets, light switches, light bulbs, where the power buttons are on my TVs, the volume control on my steering wheel, keys, the postal system, hats, the fact that there aren't new kinds of food every day, having to touch anything in public ever, silverware, every onscreen TV guide ever made, the monetry system, the fact there is entirely too much green and blue in nature, the fact that the sun still hurts our eyes, every remote control evey made, ziploc bags with an actual zipper pull, every ATM interface ever made, bags of cereal inside boxes of cereal, carpet, teeth, the education system, bedding, fake plants, dishwashers, having to paint everything, the fact that traffic lights aren't smarter, noses, written language, tires, doorknobs, refrigerators, the electrical grid, the fragility of glass (also concrete also asphalt also skin also bone also eyeballs), the fact that all advertising I have to see isn't customized to suit my tastes... this goes on forever... and this isn't even the stuff I don't like the looks of... that list is bigger...
