Design not for the faint of heart

During a project for the American Institute Of Graphic Artists the creative team, John Neerland and Nina Orezzoli, discovered that many graphic design terms have an inherent dark side to them. They then quickly decided that this could become a fun ad, poster and interactive tool online to test the knowledge of students and young designers across the world. Oh yeah, you can buy some cool t-shirts, too.

I didn't know one term: tombstone. Which one was new for you?

Sounds like I missed the knot.

I'd forgotten the difference between an alley and the gutter. I tend to refer to them all as a gutter. Knot anymore! MU HA HA HAAA!

Gottem all! :D That was fun. . . I don't think I'll buy the poster, though.

Knot and slug were new for me!

Yup, missed the knot as well. I like the reverse side of the poster. Too bad you can only hang up one side at a time :/

The first one was a learning experience.. and the second one I missed about five, then I reviewed what others have missed and I got it at the third try... So yes my english design jargon expended.... It was very educating....

I'm embarrassed to admit that I have never heard of those three terms. Oops!
