Nope, I'd never downgrade the importance of Dada in influencing design. But
it didn't last. I think current typographic design could have the same kind
of influence, down the ages. That's the kind of blip I meant.

I agree with Terri, it's a blip at best. Maybe just a subblip.
 
Well, I suppose most of the grunge and hard-to-read stuff will look like
Chrome
and Pluto and all those other fonts we saw back in the days of Discomania.
But
*some* of it will persevere--the thoughtfully used grunge stuff we see in
all
the better places, not the derivative simulacra that are the habituis of bad
ads.
 
And give Dada--especially its typography--its due. We all are doing
typography
in the shadow cast by Apollinaire's poetry, Zurich Dada, the Futurists, Max
Ernst's collages, and the layered images of Cubism. Not to mention Jasper
Johns.
 
Not a blip, that Dada stuff.
 
Yours
