Be nice to the visiting design nerds

My recent ‘axe vs. plunger’ discussion with artist Rebekah Modrak has made it to the popular website Design Observer thanks to an article by former New York Times Magazine columnist and author of Buying In: The Secret Dialogue Between What We Buy and Who We Are, Rob Walker. And, as often happens in cases like this, a whole new demographic is visiting the site. They’ll likely all be gone by tomorrow, but, if you could watch your language for the next 24 hours or so, I’d appreciate it. And it wouldn’t hurt if you could work in the occasional reference to Bauhaus typography, détournement, or kerning… Here’s a clip.
