Time-saving tips for busy graphic designers

Thank you to JP Williams of Amassblog.com for sharing this letter from one of his vast collections of typographical ephemera:  written on official Bauhaus letterhead and signed on page 2 by Walter Gropius, this  official correspondence is typed entirely in lowercase font.

The bottom of the letterhead contains the adage, "wir schreiben allas klien, denn wir sparen damit zeit", which translates to "we are writing everything in lower case in order to save time".

I love the idea of letting one's design influence all aspects of life, correspondence, love...  to efficiency and beyond!
