FUCKING UP THE FRIENDLY SKIES: Yeah, boarding pass design is something the airlines botched long, long ago. So this guy stands up to ‘em and shows ‘em how to do them right. Or, gets close, quick. And we appreciate that. And so does 42 fuckers who sent me this link, and hell, you know who you are, and I love you for it. Thank you to all of you.

Keep it simple, people. Think about what the reader needs to see, and how they should see it. That’s called “good design.” How about that for a concept, big, rich airlines?

And on another note, a giant “fuuuuuck you” to Northwest for getting eaten up by Delta. My miles are all jacked, just like a grillion other customers, and like that guy on the phone in Delhi could give a fuck.

As nice as those Grand Canyon shots are, they’re no where near the quality of a Ansel Adams photo.

Only my opinion of course.
