cartoon_precisiontool_NPE

„Boy, language is a precision tool”. That’s what my English teacher used to preach. We all hated him for his pedantry. Today I know that the man was just right. Most misunderstandings stem from spoken words. This is not only a problem of proper grammar. More important is that people tend to translate words on the way from ear to brain into something they...

It's fun to stay at the CMYK

A web designer’s reputation in all things social is not overwhelmingly positive. I guess we could agree on that. A designer’s humor is a bit special, too.
