Jasmin says it looks postmodern, but I think the visual rhetoric has a logic. I mean, it’s not just play for the sake of coolness without concern for a rational order holding the thing together. But if this be postmodern, so be it.

  1. Bro, I love it. Elegant and well laid out. Did you use a grid?
