Agreed. I was specifically making a broad categorical statement about the
mostly but not exclusively Paula Scher component of the New York branch of
Pentagram, and additionally referring to those responsible for the redesign
It's my fault for not being exact about it, when I originally wrote:

But as a broad categorical statement, it's still rather innocuous, isn't it?
Perhaps I should have written, "I have never cared much for Pentagram,"
because then my generalization would have been more in sync with my apathy.
