  • My head hurts...

    There is a friend on my FB list who either has gotten PS or some sort of graphic program and now they are a graphic guru.... They are making profile and matching cover images.... they are just divine! ............. NOT!

    They are so skewed and distorted they are hurting my eyes and my head. All her friends are raving about how wonderful they are ... so I see no sign of them stopping any time soon! Ugggh!!!!!

    They are soooo great she is making several every single day. They are so popular she is tagging her own with "no snagging please" They are just her special ones for just her.

    You have no idea how badly I want to say ... don't worry .. I won't steal it LOL :P

    Here are a just a few .... the horse is VERY popular.

    I guess she is having fun and I must sound bitchy ... but it's just so painful I had to vent a bit.

      Yeah, it can be painful when you see people you know do stuff like this. I have just got to bite my tongue.
      It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" Winnie the Pooh

        Someone I know was talking about "doing a booklet in powerpoint" today.... I'm sorry RKK, maybe you can stick her in your 'restricted' folder - then all her posts will be.... contained.
        Sketching not only helps you work out good ideas, it helps you get past the bad ones.

          Yet another demonstration of how obsession with so-called "social media" is a veritable fountain of ill-effect.
          I'd rather be killed than come to your party, but if you don't invite me, I'll kill myself.

            I've got one of those on my feed too, except they are poorly edited blurry trying-to-be-sexy selfies. With the exception of often hilarious drama, I'm sure that's the only thing she posts.
            Design is not decoration.

              My favorites are the selfies that are so amazingly photoshopped, yet tagged #nofilters.

              sometimes I think if I said what I thought on the book I'd have very few acquaintances/people I haven't spoken to since school as "friends"

              I find it quite hilarious that, of the people I know, the graphic designers are the ones that manipulate their pictures the least.

              ps.- Thankfully, that one friend that got a DSLR camera, and asked me for photography lessons, actually takes good pictures and barely manipulates them /proud.

              I never bash that type of "art" in public, but I always secretly wish those people would ask me personally if I'd like one/some, so I can respond, "I'd rather set my face on fire."

            Oh, ye gods and monsters. And my stock response would be "I'd rather wear fire for a hat!"
            This post is brought to you by the letter E and the number 9. Those are the buttons I push to get a Twix out of the candy machine.

              This kind of reminds me of when my best friend was saying she was getting really good at identifying fonts because she decided that Comic Sans was a good match for Arial. I told her it wasn't even close and left it at that.

                That's the worst isn't it? I have one of those and when she asked me to tell her how great it was I told her honestly the problems I saw. Well that didn't go over well. The rest of her followers started paying! her twenty dollars to "create". So that showed me. hmph.

                  There is no end to the kitsch market.
                  There's a lot of bad taste out there.

                  I'm guessing that renting a party girl means exactly what one might suspect.

                  As for the logo, it looks like a peel-off sticker of some kind. The type is mathematically centered, but visually...

                  Merit badges? Really?
                  We'll see what happens I guess.

                  What do you mean by ''gig design''?

                  As for the thing itself, I might put Perth on its own line under Party Girls. The whole thing kind of gives a mixed message. Is it a modeling agency? Is...

                  Is this forum migrating to the new or going away and starting over?
