What’s important is the fucking drive to see a project through no matter what. Widows and orphans are terrible fucking tragedies, both in real life and definitely in typography. Sometimes it is appropriate to place various typographic elements on the outside of the fucking left margin of text to maintain a strong vertical axis. This practice is referred to as exdenting and is most often used with bullets and quotations. Don’t fucking lie to yourself. You won’t get good at anything by doing it a lot fucking aimlessly. Paul Rand once said, “The public is more familiar with bad fucking design than good design. It is, in effect, conditioned to prefer bad design, because that is what it lives with. The new becomes threatening, the old reassuring.” If you fucking give up, you will achieve nothing. To surpass others is fucking tough, if you only do as you are told you don’t have it in you to succeed.
