No scallops keep things blocked out like you were using graph paper (of the mind... The mind... The mind) and put the boring shit up high. Symmetry will make people feel better about the board but not necessarily understand why. (bc design is the secret language that runs the world)

I didn't realize that scalloped edges were used outside elementary school classrooms. (They are my job when I help my wife with her classroom at the begining of every school year)

The text of this email says "come and have fun" but the design says "come and end up kidnapped in someone's basement."

It's the quotes around "adult" that get me. It's not really wrong, it's just that back in my day one simply included BYOB in the invite and everyone knew what that meant.

GM is lucky that the attack on the Capitol happen or they would be responsible for the worst assault on a hallowed American symbol since 9/11.

I'm not familiar enough with Simplified Chinese script to know which character that is, but I bet it means something like "we give up".

Someone pointed out that the new logo looks like an elephant and I can’t unsee it.
