thanks for the link. Personally I found it rather lacking and a bit "snobbish". :)

now, I personally know the stuff in there already so I jumped a little towards the end... but he spends a lot of time idolizing his own skill/view of the world. And actual advice you can use in a real job (where things go fast and you have a budget) are sparse :) ... but you can learn a little about A-series paper sizes, grids and typography (a little) - so for a beginner there is some info in there.

I don't think that I've ever met a graphic designer who wasn't blinded by their own shining magnificence. :) Thank god I'm just an average artist so I don't have to worry about that sort of thing.
