    Back before the days of the interweb-thingy, words were mostly distributed via print… when they weren't being scratched in to bus shelters, or passed from the lips of Aunt Lynn to Nora down the local shops. Print designers crafted their words into neat columns and arty displays at fixed proportions. They worked upon static sheets of paper – a fixed size medium that didn't move or do anything once words were stuck upon it. Design was sure. It was predictable.
