This is a quiz to test your knowledge of cheese and/or type fonts. Created by Tony Gambone at mogrify.org in Richmond, Virginia, the quiz gives an unfair advantage to serious cheese lovers. However, if there is ever a quiz called “Chocolate or Font?”, some of us will leave you cheese lovers in the dust.
Particularly in this lousy economy, we are all victims…and victimizers. We are increasingly operating in a “used car lot” environment, where buyers feel it is their duty to bargain and don’t feel that they have gotten the best deal until they have eliminated virtually all profit from the sale. This video satire runs too close to reality for many, not just on the design-creative side, but up and down the line.
Corporate-speak, designer-speak, printer-speak. Industry terms defined.
Triple bottom line: In business, “bottom line” refers to the line at the end of a financial statement that shows net profit or loss. Now when companies calculate the bottom line of a product or program, they factor in social, environmental and financial results to determine whether the overall return was positive or negative. One out of three is no longer good enough.
Strikethrough: When editing in Word software, a strikethrough means a line drawn through text meant to be deleted. In printer-speak, strikethrough is a chemical reaction caused by putting an overall gloss coating over a spot dull varnish. Varnish neutralizes the gloss coating and stays dull while the rest of the sheet turns glossy. This technique gives designer the ability to make shapes or words appear ghostlike out of a solid color or create the effect of multiple finishes on an image.
