    "perfect"

    No. It isn't. And it won't be. But it might do.

    It's current prevalence in the service world is devaluing the idea of perfection to a new nadir of hopelessness.

    Infantile words:

    selfie
    emoji

    Newspeak:

    Optics (just say "looks bad")
    Doubling down (politics isn't a sport)
    Pivoting to [new issue] (moving on to something more important)


    It's probably the quick adoption of trendy words and phrases. People seem eager to sound cool, I guess. Irritating.

    “vernacular” used today by people getting rigorous formal training in graphic design

    it’s self-conscious and inauthentic and just has the effect of widening the class separation but it’s so trendy right now

    it also seems to assume that design comes from outside popular culture somehow. designers themselves aren’t “the people”— the language of the people is just a style

    Clapback.

    What does that supposed to mean other justifying cuntiness?

    Also I hate everytime I hear/read “dumb down”. This is used a lot by the women I work with right now in describing how they explain stuff to workmates outside our department.
