Someone says, "Hey, have a look at the new creative for our site!" and I can't help but to think how stupid that sounds. Creative what?
Do we really need yet another word to describe a creation? Aren't words like logo, advertisement, design, layout, or presentation sufficient and less vague at the same time?
As if the word "creative" hasn't already been abused to the point of being totally meaningless: "Hey, look what Bob did. That's very creative!"
Yo, moron. Odds are good that you mean "original" there. Any time someone creates something, it is by definition a creative exercise. So you're stating the obvious. As for it being "very creative", how do you judge that exactly?
Damned language. It keeps "evolving" in stupid ways.
(No. I have no idea why this bothers me. But it does, in a "my Internet is down" sort of way.)
Ahhh. It feels good to have that out of my system.
Flame away if you're bored. :-)
