Aegir Hallmundur of Ministry of Type posts about typographic maps and wether automated design is good or bad. Too bad his blog doesn’t allow comments as I’m sure his post would spark a lively discussion. Please comment on the subject here if you like.
My view is automated design allows us to create things larger than ourselves. Add to that the element of talent and you have something really special.
