Satire from The Onion [theonion.com]

CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, OH The aesthetic judgment of Paul Gaskill, a graphic designer working on a brochure for Valley View Apartments, was "severely clouded" by a desire to use a new Adobe Photoshop plug-in, coworkers at Blue Moon Design said Monday.

Warning - that's an Onion story ;-) (I get sucked in by those all the time)

Funny article.

A good article and a valid poind. Two things comes to mind:

KISS - Keep it simple stupid
The 7 P's - Perfect Planing and Preparation Prevents Piss Poor Performanc

(yes I am a soldier by profession - Royal Marine Regiment)

> KISS - Keep it simple stupid

Takes a lot more to work to do that! Design simplicity is very hard to achieve in any field. Most clients seriously underestimate the resources required to achieve what appears to be simplicity and straight-forward presentation.

In practice "Keep it simple" turns into a big job: "Make this mess look simple".

Now, I don't have the military background to say this with authority... ;) But I'd say that's where the 7Ps come into play.

I haven't come out from under my rock since bearing witness to the earlier proliferation of "Blade Pro jaggies".

When Plug-Ins Go Bad. A new special on Fox?

Ooh. I love Blade Pro. But it's definitely one that requires some major tinkering to get right.

When Plug-Ins Go Bad. A new special on Fox?

Hmm... Don't know if the public is ready for it. Fear Factor would be mild in comparison. But hey! If they made it, I could do the raised chrome metallic BladePro titling, if you wanted to do the pink-clouds-and-lighting backgrounds! ;)

Yes - I'd like to narrate When Plug-Ins Go Bad. Perhaps you'd do a guest spot on never-before revealed secrets of Blade Pro Tweaks as the 'Northern' correspondent?

Pink clouds and lightning was a home grown recipe fueled by caffeine and nicotine instead of the native filter packs. Gaussian blur and varying opacity was pegged to the floor. 224 megs worth. That falls under the category of "Never Argue With A Paying Client" (no matter how obscure the ad concept.)

Their money pays for more plug-ins :)

Hehe... Hmmm, a career in the military, or as part of a Fox TV terror special producing team? Tough choice. Maybe I could produce Fox terror specials for the military...

BTW- I didn't mean to imply the pink clouds were a filter, but rather that the overall effect was sufficiently terrifying to use for the special, with the other effects applied to objects that go floating past in the cotton-candy mist... I don't know of any filters that could produce a background of that caliber.
