Greetings and Salutations!

Welcome to the longest-running* yet least-read** blog on the internet! Here you'll find me writing about all the things that I write about, which strikes me, just now, as somewhat recursive. In any case, enjoy :)

bad graphic designer. go to your room!

How bad ads are born:

Client: I want to use the tagline ‘have a head for maths’. Make the visuals fit that, okay?
Designer: Okay.
Client: also, your quote is too high. I can only pay half that.
Designer: (sighs, mentally checks his savings account. Sighs again) Okay…
Client: also, I need this for the magazine by three o’clock today.
Designer: (trying to decide where to hide the body) Okay.
