    Thank you everyone for you comments they have been very helpful. I do have to agree after looking it over again I don't think the icon reads very effectively. And therefore makes it a bit useless. And...

  • Stupidest/Funniest questions and answers thread....

    What is it about mour Marketing Department here? They don't have a flippin' clue when it comes to design, not that i'm an expert but i've had enough of their crap. I do freelance for them but none of them have a clue...this includes the marketing Director, Marketing Coordinator, Manager, the whole team.

    So in the light of this I will share with you what I heard this week....



    -Why can't I use a MS Word file? [img]/emoticons/freaked.gif[/img] (My fav)
    -What's an .eps file?
    -Oh, we just have a few corrections to make on the catalogue, can it be ready by the end of the day?(they know i don't do my graphics work here at work and the catalogue was 100 pages with like 50% changes)
    -oh yes i've got some pictures for you....i'll send you the word file.... [img]/emoticons/frusty.gif[/img] (damn word files)
    -how come when i enlarge the picture it looks pixelated?
    -you can't use word to do the layout? [img]/emoticons/blowingup.gif[/img] (i'm going to kill someone!)
    -how come i can't change the picture on this .pdf file? [img]/emoticons/nono.gif[/img]

    I'm sure you guys can relate......so what have you heard? [img]/emoticons/eyecrazy.gif[/img]

    Oh man I’ve heard them all. Word layouts lol even me IT manager wanted me t' do a manual in word so he can update it, what happened he ended up gettin' Quark and a Powerbook which he never uses. They just don’t know how graphics work or how we work, they should all get Imacs runnin' Adobe CS suite. We should make this a national petition, who’s in? Arrrrrrrrrr!


    Graphic Design Heroes! Call me Captain Type Caster. I’ve fought off “The Evil Cosmic Sans” for year but it seems “Dr. Extreme Untalent” keeps bringing him back. I must find a way to defeat this evil creature.

    Capt. Creative bring me those comps…

      This is my recent favorite that I was asked when we upgraded to OSX...

      --- Using Safari, when I type the web address there is no 'go' button so it won't go to that address!

      Ahemm..do I REALLY need to go on?

          'they do graphic designs on Macs?'

            OMG, people actually USE the Go button in a browser?! LOL!

            My favorite Graphic Design question was always 'What do you mean my picture sucks? Why can't I use a Polaroid?!'

            And the inevitable 'Why does this rendering look so bad when Jerry's look great?' (Because Jerry uses a 35mm camera, dumba**!)

                      My personal fav, that i get at least 3 times a week is 'Im gonna email you the pictures' and for those of you that don't know, I work on 10 foot wide mural panels, I get sent 37k jpgs and these people think thats a sufficient file size for 10 feet....... ugh.

                      And the best to date...... my mail was recieving for over an hour, so I call the mail server peeps and ask em whats up, they told me someone had emailed me a 200meg tif file...wtf?
