16 Things To Say To A Designer To Crush Their Spirit

I love my job. I love my job. I love my job.

“I’m not a designer, but...”

Via get-on-the-carousel.tumblr.com

If you’re not a designer then maybe you should trust my expertise.

"Make the logo bigger."

Via gleerphelpers.tumblr.com

No. No I will not.

"The type is too small."

Via gifif.com

Oh really? Is it? Did you know that average magazine size font is 8.25 and we’re using size 14? Suck. It.

"Your camera takes great pictures."

Via imgur.com

Thanks! It definitely has nothing to do with the creative eye behind the camera.

"I love it! This is great! But…"

And here are 10,000 edits.

"We ended up going in a different direction."

Via replygif.net

Thanks for your time, but after countless hours of hard work we’re going to design it in Microsoft Word.

"Well you’re the designer here..."

THEN WHY WON'T YOU LISTEN TO MY PROFESSIONAL ADVICE?!

"You have total creative freedom"

Via reactiongifs.com

Translation: I have no idea what I want and will figure it out once I see it. Probably. Maybe.

"We don’t have much of a budget."

Via glee.wikia.com

Code for “you’re going to work just as hard and we’ll pay you nothing.”

"I don't know what I need exactly, but I want a quote."

Via reactiongifs.com

$2 to $2 bazillion. GIVE ME DETAILS.

"We’ll keep our revisions to a minimum."

"Can you make the photo hi-res?"

Via dailycal.org

Oy.

"I really like that Papyrus/Zapfino/Curlz font."

Via giphy.com

Why don’t you just stab me with a rusty butter knife?

"This won’t take you long."

Via pandawhale.com

Here’s a thought – why don’t I just let you know how long I think it’ll take.

"There’s not enough stuff in the design."

Via senorgif.com

Please ignore the fact that white space, leading and good margins lead to better looking design. Let’s try and cram as much stuff as possible in it!

"Can you jazz it up a bit?"

Via tumblr.com

Can you use other clichéd phrases that don’t actually mean anything?
