Graphic Design Truths
Truth #21: Every time I see another example of ironic trash design a part of my soul dies.
Truth #20: There is absolutely no use in the hundreds of “omg this is amazing” comments being shot around Behance every second. Can someone please give me some trash talk for my projects!
Truth #19: “That design is so interesting I don’t even understand it’s concept” should be an idiom for “pretentious lazy shit”.
Truth #18: You spend most of the time tweaking your design with things only other designers will notice. When was the last time one of them gave you a paid project?
Truth #17: Stop thinking that going to the flea market to buy stuff makes it more meaningful, it does not.
Truth #16: Stop designing new text faces, they’ve all been designed already.
Truth #15: Leave grandma’s clothes to your grandma, she looks better in them than you.
Truth #14: No, graphic designers are not always homosexual, that’s fashion designers.
Truth #13: Idiosyncratic typefaces look really dumb when used out of context.
Truth #12: Design Awards are useful only for making your wallet lighter. Or dusting off your jacket from all the useless back-petting.
