The Design Lesson

I like these thoughts by Andy Rutledge:

In graphic design, nothing is what it actually is. Everything other than content is representative of something else.

A line isn’t a line, it’s a boundary. Don’t need a boundary? Or is that boundary already clear by some other means? Don’t use a line.

Same goes for boxes, gradients, white space, scale, font, and any other design element there is.
