My Frustration as a Graphic Designer.

  1. β€’
    LinkedIn posted this photo of what the winner card for the Miss Universe looks like...
  2. β€’
    This is why design is so important.
  3. β€’
    People think that they can do with out designers
  4. β€’
    That if they download photoshop and use some word art, they will do just fine.
  5. β€’
    No, betch...
  6. β€’
    Owning photoshop does NOT make you a graphic designer.
  7. β€’
    Stop with the gradients
  8. β€’
    Enough with the unnecessary drop shadows
  9. β€’
    Marketing is said to be the first department to be cut.
  10. β€’
    Which I think is bogus.
    Yes I still use the word "bogus"
  11. β€’
    How are you going to sell a product that looks like a second grader made it in Microsoft Paint??
  12. β€’
    Or your website looks like it was made in the 2000s?
  13. β€’
    I don't tell a doctor that I can do their job almost as good as them, so I'll just do my child's brain surgery on my own.
  14. β€’
  15. β€’
    Leave it to the people who know what they are doing.
  16. β€’
    And stop saying that we cost too much money...
  17. β€’
    That you "beat the system", by *hiring* vistaprint to print business cards for only $10
  18. β€’
    That you took an image off of google to make your logo
  19. β€’
    Please stop saying you know design, because you know Comic Sans and Papyrus are no-no's
    Congrats... I, too, can read a buzzfeed article telling me that comic sans is the worst don't ever.
  20. β€’
    I am tired.
  21. β€’
    And so are the other designers out there.
  22. β€’
    I honestly think that we have just gotten so used to it that we let it happen.
    It's like when people always mispronounce your name, and you are so tired of correcting them that you just answer to the wrong name.
  23. β€’
    So please stop dismissing graphic design.
