    To me, most of what Eli writes reads quite whimsically, but I do think he has some valuable critique all the same.

      I agree Marco. I never understood people who are so deeply upset by lighthearted yet honest criticism. Sometimes we need to not take ourselves too seriously and let others poke fun at us. Otherwise, we will be blinded by the brilliance of our own work to the point where criticism hurts.

      With that being said, the "Stickers for M" set really is strange. I am all for unexpected, unconventional design aesthetics for the sake of healthy variety; but pretending that this set isn't objectively problematic is intellectually dishonest. If it were described as something intentionally fun and silly, then I would be far more understanding of it. However, the way it was presented makes it sound as if it were some groundbreaking, new understanding of human communication which is simply wrong.

      With all that being said, I honestly like the composition of the Facebook M logo (even though the unintended "MX" monogram is a perfectly valid criticism of it). The set however, feels totally mismatched.
