Typos like that drive me crazy. I do layout and design for a newspaper, so I do read what I'm laying out and I'll catch stuff like that and all sorts of other mistakes according to the style books. I think the one common mistake that makes me maddest, is when the writer refers to a person and uses the word that instead of the word who; e.g. "He's the kind of person that…" when it should be "He's the type of person who…"Also, I not only read skate mags and catch this stuff, but I also look and the design of all the ads and try to figure out what the designer did to make the ad, and what font was used, etc. I just shake my head when I see a Volcom ad, because I know a poor designer had to waste time clipping paths and arranging layers all just to make it seem like the ad is some sort of homemade 'zine cut and paste job.— Rikku Markka
That ad threw me off a bit in the new Thrasher, I thought it was part of some new art direction direction? Thanks for the background.
I feel the exact same way about typos and mistakes like that. I hate it when I make them and cringe when it is something that could have been easily prevented.
