Spotted today on the road between Cravant and Auxerre: bare trees dotted with luxurious orbs of olive green mistletoe. A graphic designer couldn’t have done better. All the elements of good design respected in full. Balance. Pattern. Composition. Imbalance. Interruption. Geometry. Accident. Luscious though subtle color. And, surprise. On first glance, the winter landscape seems to offer little. On second glance, it offers so much more than enough.
