Issue No.03 - July-September (1981 vol.1)
Color, resolution, and speed, though important factors in computer graphics, must be subordinate to the message the image must deliver. While many graphics designers and users have understood this, many others, bedazzled by the powerful hardware/software tools available to them, have been tempted to use all the techniques they can instead of the ones they should. If they had a system that could graph in eight colors and fifteen fonts, for example, they used them all-with confusion of the viewer the result.
