Sample text

Chapter Two] U nde rstanding a M ode le r ’s R ole 29 Visual designs are usually in the form of traditional sketches and paintings, as well as clay sculptures, often referred to as maquettes.

This makes perfect sense, but it has created something known as software wars. Software wars are as old as the software applications, and as far as I’m concerned, arguing about them is a complete waste of time.
