" I photoshopped helmets and masks onto copper miners. The ad was for the world's largest mining company. The workers had been natives living in the jungle a year earlier. No protective gear was worn in the source photo. One of them was clearly a child (until the mask went on)."
All the vices of bankers. None of the financial rewards.
Love this one...
‘As a freelancer, I often turn down work because I'm going out of town, have a social engagement, or am just to lazy to wake up before noon. I never tell them this, I just say I'm booked. Also, I never take work right away, I say "let me see if I can move some stuff around, I'll call you right back" then I watch hulu/check email/masturbate for 30 minutes, then call back and take the job, while implying they owe me a favor for making room in my busy, busy schedule. Since I started doing this, my business has tripled.’
whats with all these masturbating porno watching designers. "So usually I do some work for a client then I jerk off all over the place" bunch of pervs
"At an agency Christmas party, I introduced the president's daughter to cocaine. Now she's hooked..."
"Working at pharma, I helped create testimonials, misleading content and relationships for high budget orgs (cancer, aids, __ awareness, __ prevention, etc). Content that is specifically aimed at Drs to get them to recommend our clients brand to desperate patience or to get our clients names into studies they have no place in. Recently my wife got a serious disease and I don't believe anything the Drs tell us."
Reading all of this depresses me to no end. Why did I get into this business again ... ?
have to agree with this:
"I think 'designing in the browser' is like designing a chair by going to a workshop and nailing wood together until you have something you can sit in. The results are dull and it's advocates seem to be failed designers who use coding to hide their lack of imagination."
^^ I could argue that designing for the browser without using one, is like designing a chair without the notion of gravity and using materials that don't exist, when you sit, it fall into pieces or it's simply unusable.
- I like this argument.funkage
- I took it as 'designing' without a plan. which is likely to lead you to the path of least resistance...monNom
- early prototyping and using code as a tool is fine, but the concept of starting with html paints you into a box
- no... it allows you to make decisions based on facts / a functioning prototype. you can see it / feel it.rosem
- obviously this isn't practical with physical objects (like a chair) — but with digital you would be stupid not to do this.rosem
