Resources for graphic designers and finished artists

The pages in this series cover a wide range of subjects, but we hope all of them will be useful to the newcomer to our industry, as well as the veteran.

Those articles that relate to issues of spelling, punctuation and grammar do not pretend to be the definitive guide to Standard English, and neither do they lay claim to being scholarly works. Rather, they provide an introduction to what was once called Printers’ English: the rules, peculiarities and pitfalls of the language in its printed (and on-screen) form. Nevertheless, they are not meant to be a resource only for those directly involved in the production process. We hope that the budding author and hapless secretary tasked with preparing his or her company’s annual report will also find much of value here – as, for that matter, will anyone seeking to improve their English skills.

While every effort will be made to ensure accuracy of content, we make no claims to infallibility and do invite correspondence – and argument! Indeed, we hope to promote debate around correct English within an industry where, in recent years, we believe it has taken second place to attractive packaging.
