I think it is "incredibly > rude" and flat out stupid to hate text so much in a design, whether music > CD cover or web site, that the text is horrible low contrast (eg., light > blue text on medium blue background) and super tiny. I had a nice little face-to-face discussion my main (outsourced) designer today. Here are some of the topics covered in the conversation, thought it might be on-topic: 1. Recurring tendency to design websites at 300 DPI, resizing to 72 as a last step, thus blurring all straight edges; 2. Using non-standard, anti-aliased fonts at 6pt or 7pt; 3. Designing content as pure white text on an opaque bright yellow background. That third one happened today, and he was 100% convinced it was the right design decision, and no other color would possibly fit in the design at that spot. The fact that he didn't notice when I alt-tabbed to a version where the bright yellow was replaced by a dark blue says enough, I think... Rick.
