The Yahoo logo design process represents the worst aspects of someone who doesn't understand or accept that type design, typography, and graphic design in general are professions that benefit from years or decades of training.

I'm delivering a 20-minute talk about my thesis TOMORROW evening: I will be talking about graceful degradation, responsive web design, and how to create flash-like animations and interactives using nothing but CSS+HTML (plus a dash of javascript). Art + technology = the future of storytelling.

The Thesis Forum is in room G115 (right off the lobby) of the Maxwell-Dworkin building north of Harvard Yard (33 Oxford Street, Cambridge). Tuesday, May 15, from 6-9 pm.
