dear grunge effects: maybe it’s just that you never went away, but your hand-drawn text, ironic/noncommittal imagery and forcefully destructed texture treatments have reemerged into mainstream graphics. in the 90’s, (when i was in high school) such techniques appealed to me so much that i decided to become a graphic designer. so now that we have come full-circle, does that make me old? how many iterations of “grunge” will my skills be called forth to cater to in my lifetime?
