I think this is hilarious. I don't know how to right-click to see it full size, unfortunately. I think that's a PC thing.

Apologies if this has been posted before, I am not here every day and may have missed it.

Oooh -- marvellous! ("Think Mr. Spiekermann is mostly right?" -- priceless!)

It would make a great poster for the office. Julian: if this origined as a vector illustration please host a PDF as well!

I learned that right-click on the Mac is control+click but thanks!

I suspect there's no mouse, just a trackpad.

ah! Fyi, right clicking on the MacBook trackpad = two fingers + click. You may need to enable this is settings.

Glad you like it!

There are a few mistakes that I need to correct, but I think I'll host as PDF when they are corrected.
Actually a lot of inspiration to the poster is from these forums.

Julian: This absolutely rocks. I especially liked the proper use of Comic Sans. Although Palatino seems to be lost by itself?

I use an older mouse with no buttons. Not a trackpad.

You can still use the Control key to see a larger image of the poster, Patty.

I love the poster, by the way! Thanks for posting the link.

Fantastic! Congrats, Julian. The whole flowchart is brilliant, especially Caslon and Comic Sans answers.

An older mouse with no buttons? Are you sure? I thought there was always one. Are you perhaps pushing a bar of soap around next to the computer?

I don't think Massimo Vignelli would approve of this.

This poster made my day.

On my second try, I ended following a path that led me to > Are You Alone > Okay, then come with me > Comic Sans.

Haha. Brilliant.
