Census form arrives - oh joy!

Got the census form - long, intrusive and slightly daft at times. Question 17 is bizarre - presumably there was a question that was deleted, but they couldn't face changing all the other question numbers.


  1. Is this a sign of things to come where all graphic designers have to specify that our beloved white space is intentional, and that we really don't need you (Mr/Mrs Client) to come up with more copy to fill it in?

  2. I'm now wondering - perhaps it's for a secret purpose we mortals don't comprehend. The Jedi Knights will know what to write here.

    Perhaps the Welsh get asked an extra question...

    Indeed according to today's paper the Welsh do get asked an extra question which is 'Do you speak Welsh?'. They dropped this question for people living in England but wanted to keep the same design.

    Why they can't ask this of people living in England but perhaps Welsh isn't clear.

  5. I'm slightly more bemused by asking my two year old whether he speaks English 'well' or whether he considers himself British, English or both...
