Anyone have an opinion on symmetric and asymmetric typography? What are your thoughts on these styles? Any designers influenced your style? Do you agree with any designers views on the topic?

@Heesh,
Each situation is different. No single policy can possibly cover all the contingencies.

@dalehileman,
Designing a journal to argue asymmetric desgin/ typography against symmetric, researched Jan Tschichold, new typography, emil ruder and hermut schmid but was after other peoples view points on symmetric and asymmetric typography. Are symmetric designs as visually interesting as asymmetric? etc

@Heesh,
Thanks Heesh, I had no idea something so obscure to your Average Clod (me) could be so important to so many

If it's no imposition, what brought about your interest in the subject--whether academic, casual, hobby, work-related, etc
