I spent a little time this week looking through some past projects, and came across a design that didn’t get used, although I was quite fond of it. I realized I could put it to use as a series of iPhone/iPod 960×640 wallpapers based around a series of philosophical principles that are important to me and a do bit of a typography exercise at the same time.
I like the seven Unitarian Universalist principles, since they have nothing to do with religion and they’re even more general guidelines than religions usually give you. Perhaps more fuzzily worded than “thou shalt not kill,” but I think they more than cover all the “secular” rules in the Ten Commandments. I think the seven principles can be summed up well in the eternal words of Bill & Ted: “Be excellent to each other.”
