It may be the fact that I just came from a press check and all the ink fumes went to my brain, but I wonder… if these heavyweights were to fight each other who would win?

- Rick Valicenti vs. Carlos Segura

- Jonathan Hoefler vs. Tobias Frere-Jones

- Paula Scher vs. April Greiman

- David Carson vs. Massimo Vignelli

- Bill Cahan vs. Greg Samata

- The Attik vs. The Designers Republic (more of a brawl)

I would pick Charles, those people in Minneapolis are tough.

Jon’s comment is:

Paula'd kick April Greiman's butt. She's from NY and April's a new agey california girl. No contest.

(Although I think Paula should have made her new book bigger so it could be a better weapon...)

I don't think Heofler and Frere-Jones would ever actually fight. The former might brandish a ligature, the latter might threaten with yet another weight of Interstate, but they'd never actually use them.

Armin’s comment is:

That would be a really trendy fight. Lots of Helvetica Bold's flying around, and no serifs to fight back with. What a shame.

I've been in a heated argument with Chuck. He's not tough. Arrogant, yes, but not tough.

Arrogance is a powerful weapon... when you want to get your ass kicked.

>Not that I advocate fighting amongst the profession, of course...

Maybe that's what the profession needs.
