      I'm a graphic designer. I feel his pain.

        I'm sending this to all my fellow designers. You begin to see how stupid our society is in this line of work. Even working with CEO's.

        • I don't know

          Sorry but seeing how stupid people are is definitely not exclusive to graphic design. Any job that has you working with the public has a very high chance of ruining your world view.

            Definitely not exclusive to graphic design. I once had a customer tell me (I'm a mechanic) "When I turn my heat down, it doesn't blow as hot." That was their issue. I can't make this shit up, I'm not that creative.

          • 2Dogs

            Ive been a designer for 10 years I feel the pain also

          • Calloused

            Amen. In IT and a customer yelled at me on the phone, "Can't you just give me the $%^&*#$ link to <says the link>?!?!"

        • Blue Bronco

          Especially CEO's.
          There is a fine art of giving them what you think is right, but making them think it is their idea.

    • Suzanne Trevellyan

      I'm with Matt. If I hear one more person ask me to make it 'pop' I think I'm gonna pop them!

  • Canucks_Rule

  • Captain Obvious


  • Albus

    Let's be honest here, we all just read like the first 5 then scrolled to the bottom to hit "Next Post".

    • Joel

      You must be a client, not a designer.

    • Steel Jaguar

      Speak for yourself and not others, please. I thought this was a fairly humorous post. Reminds me of customer service period.

  • sfb101

    As a designer I feel for him…
    #6, #12, #22, #24 & #34

    • Bond

    • bigyawns

      yes you mentioned that

      • Mikey D

        To be fair, both of his posts were shit.

  • KeepinCalm

    Most ring true. Dealt with #29 & #6 last week – proof that it's OK to fire a client before ever getting started

  • Mike

    Many of these are ingenious but I feel like they're a better business model than sarcastic humor.

  • buck

    I guess only people who work with advertising understood most of those, the rest just want some humps.

  • brunographer

    These weren't made by just one person, they were made by a whole community of creatives, you should correct that. Here's the source:

  • Veronica

    Loved every bit of this.

  • rikooprate

    He must not be too busy…

  • Gerard

    lol some funny stuff there

  • Try2k

    Only a designer would get most of these. I am a designer, so to me hilarious!!!!
    "I only have the jpeg from the website. Can you use that on my 4'x20' banner?"

    • One Forward Two Back

      You know you insulted everyone who's not a designer, right? KCCO…

  • I Eats Bacon

    If you don't understand these, then you're probably a client.

  • sito1002

    I work on a Advertisment agency, and I have to deal with this stuff all day, every day!! This is the most clever thing that I have ever seen!!! Maybe I'll do one ore a few of mine one day.

    Thaaank you so much for this post, actually today was the best day for me to see it.

    #20… Is that an anus?

    • JMoons

      I think so.

      • Get Over Yourselves

        #20 It's a designer.

    • drtyjrz

      Glad you said it. I was thinking it though.

    • Anomanom

      No, but the client is an asshole.

    • DeepestBlue2

      Sure looks like a magenta balloon knot to me.
