My colleague, Sel, and I like to discuss what’s “in” and what’s “out” in the world of design and culture at large. We’re pretty good at it. Here is one such conversation:
Sel: I’m still working on the details of this, do u think I should ditch the triangles? what do they look like to u?
Me: teepees! they are awesome.
potentially racist, but awesome
Sel: haha ok good. thanks
Me: teepees are IN
Sel: I would definitely agree
I told u ages ago that Native Americans r in
native americans are not in. just their dwellings
Me: feathers, going out
Sel: ah jeez
Me: casinos. out
Sel: lol casinos, never in
Me: they had their day
Me: like remember when dice and spades were in
Sel: no i dont
Me: well, you’re better off for not knowing.
