Seems this Missing Missy exchange has made the rounds already but I just discovered it and genuinely LOL’d (GLOL’d?) so figured I’d share. Will prob hit even harder if you’re a designer who’s ever been asked to craft a “quick” design for a co-worker.
Shannon: “I opened the screen door yesterday and my cat got out and has been missing since then so I was wondering if you are not to busy you could make a poster for me.”
David: “Although I have two clients expecting completed work this afternoon, I will, of course, drop everything and do whatever it takes to facilitate the speedy return of Missy.”
Shannon: “yeah thats not what I was looking for at all. it looks like a movie and how come the photo of Missy is so small?”
David: “It’s a design thing. The cat is lost in the negative space.”
Gets stranger/funnier from there.
