“Don’t try to be original. Just try to be good.”

We could create a parallel example of this statement and apply it to the “2.0 design pushers” from Christopher’s comment:

“Don’t play with filters, grunge backgrounds, art brushes, spray brushes, transparencies, sparkles, dots or swirls in a vain attempt to be original. Just focus on a good grid design structure or getting a competent drawing.”

Nothing says “I can’t draw” louder than a bunch of zany eye candy without a well-formed structure to hang off. If old school means naive, I’m all for being naive!
