Design is not, or should not be, mere decoration and abstraction, but part of the business of communication.

The concern should not be for the beholder's — or creator's eye for beauty. It should be for those who, it is hoped, will read a publication and gain sufficient from it to want to buy it again, or the product it is advertising, or both.

But how frequently are opinions on the invalidity of a typographic design cast aside, displaced by the view that legibility isn't important if the product looks exciting?

This is absurd. A design that looks exciting but is incomprehensible is nothing more than a beautifully-painted square wheel!

Communicating
or just making Prettyshapes
