Probably if you are a graphic designer you don't need to read if you don't mean to laugh through clenched teeth. It's called “Confessions of a designer” and it is a poster collection very hilarious that shows some of the phrases that most often you'll hear murmur from the graphs. Why? The graphics are all crazy?
These are various quotas from the world of graphic design, for the most part universal and very plausible that I answer questions in an ironic way (idiotic) they often lay unsuspecting customers.
In fact this collection has sparked a race among professionals to find the most phrases discouraging that a designer can be told, like:
“Can you make me the blue, bluer?”
Or one that I happened to hear one of my earliest experiences in the field of graphics:
“I love that but since the proposed brochure costs too much… Can you do the same?”
In a previous article as well as other graphic designers were busy to make ironic poster and liberators that they cross the idiosyncrasies of customers and those created by type designer Anneke Short are no less.
Anyway to answer the question asked a few lines above: No! The graphs are not all crazy. Does anyone have any strong mental troubles, others a bit less, but the fault is not theirs (or my, or your) but clients and their requests. Don't believe me?
Read these articles and shiver… isn't it, Maybe it's better if you laugh!

In this collection, I must say that my favorite is the one about the use of the infamous “comic sans” and your?
