Fractional dimensions.

Thursday, July 16th, 2020

Just to follow up from yesterday, no matter how much nostalgia I have for the 1960s and 1970s, I’m very grateful to have worked as a designer in an era where you didn’t have to measure radiuses in fractional inches ( 2 ¹⁷⁄₃₂ inches!) and use a slide rule or a proportional scale to calculate how big this thing would be on a 15-foot-wide blank space on the side of a boxcar.

You just say: here’s the vector file. PDF. SVG. Illustrator EPS. Whatever.

PC 40 foot boxcar

And you’re ready to roll.
