graphic design

How do, welcome to the graphic design section of the news, hopefully I've have a few interesting articles on the subject of graphic design, it's meaning, application, methods or just some inane ramblings I've put together. I look forward to finding out if nothing else. I will be writing this pretty much as I would talk about it, so the analogies may be a little mental, the language may be a little coarse but that's just how this all comes together. I thought about writing this in my best corporate speak with a plethora of unnecessary vocabulary adorning the pages but then I remembered the people that talk like that are total douchebags who wish to seem more intelligent and important that they actually are. So, part of that last sentance notwithstanding, the rest of the words you shall read will hopefully be in an easy to understand format with some ropey anecdotes and bizarre metaphors.

If whilst reading you feel I have wrote something incorrect, or even offensive please keep your feelings to yourself and remember, offence is always taken, never given.
