This blog is moderated for the benefit of everybody who visits, whether you frequently post comments, are a regular lurker or an occasional visitor (please consider dropping by more often, we love seeing you!).

I have established the blog as a place for a constructive exchange of ideas, questions, suggestions and debate. The critical word here is “constructive”. Please note that I reserve the right to edit or delete any comments that are mean-spirited, malicious or demonstrate harassment of others. Such behaviour will not be tolerated. Any spam, or blatant self-promotion that is clearly off-topic, will also be deleted.

Anyone is welcome to take part in the discussion on this blog, and I hope you enjoy the dialogue. I encourage comments from everybody; experienced designers and illustrators, enthusiastic beginners and the growing legion of people not working in the industry but who take an active interest in design. If you are contemplating your first ever blog comment on my site, then I am honoured to have your participation.
