In my typography class, we were each assigned a typeface and instructed to make a huge as poster (I am actually "working" on my poster for Gil Sans right now). One of my classmates got the typeface gridnik, which was designed by this Dutchman, Wim Crouwel. The poster had this amazing quote that I can't get out of my head, "I am functionalist troubled by aesthetics." That feeling pretty much summed up how I feel about lots of things, especially design. Of course, it was a Dutchman, who expressed the senitment the best.
