Food for thought‘[...] do not think that good design can make a poor product good, whether the product be a machine, a building, a promotional brochure or a business man. But [...] good design can materially help make a good product reach its full potential. In short, [...] good design is good business.’

Ed Rondthaler on English spelling — Brilliant short

A wonderful short movie, showing the renowed Ed Rondthaler talking about how “logic” English spelling is. I love how humorously he presents the facts, reminds me a bit of Milton Glaser‘s quirky way of doing presentations.
