The Palettes of Flatland

This article by Gerry Leonidas—Space Exploration – Some reflections upon typography & layout (and why palettes are evil)—explores some of the issues around tools shaping outcomes, and what happens when we become too accepting of the tools we’re offered. With a monopoly on DTP shared by two major corporations, the article poses some interesting questions about why programmes are designed the way they are, and whether they restrict or limit the way we design. To be clear, this is not anti-technology, but rather looking for more intuitive ways for technology to help us to understand spatial relationships. Malcolm Garret is also interesting on this topic, see various Eye Magazines past.
