    If it wasn't for the fact that you're probably joking for the sake of the thread, i'd be a bit annoyed about this comment. Design is a professional industry, we don't all exist in some nathan barley type world.

    No beef, it's just been a stressful day, specifically due to being a designer.

    Kind of my point, I don't really think you are all useless cunts. But I think lot's of people become graphic designers out of a desire to be creative, and then struggle to find a job where, even in the best circumstances, they will mostly earn a pittance doing mundane layouts or compromising their better judgement to unreasonable or vague briefs for arseholes who do not appreciate them.

    Graphic design (as opposed to textile design, product design, manufacturing design, automotive design etc) is particularly hard going because much of what you produce will exist only for a short time in two dimensions, at best being attractive or informative rather than being a really useful or permanent legacy.

    Most of the designers I have met seem to be miserable as fuck, even the ones with dream jobs. I'd much rather be a binman and do art for fun.

    Obviously I'm not being entirely serious, if you highlight my original post, you'll see that.

    It seems to be one of the industries people want to get into, with no idea as to what they actually want to do in it.

    I get CVs all the time where the opening paragraph includes the phrase "...a desire to work in the music industry..." and really, there's no such thing. It's lots of little industries all working separately. If they worked here they'd be working at a desk getting bored as fuck and losing the will to listen to music in their spare time. I imagine the design 'industry' is a bit similar.

    See also: The skateboard industry, lots of different jobs with one thing in common: making you really feel jaded about skateboarding.

    I'm much happier doing IT in a big office and talking shit about skateboarding on here. I still need to actually skate a bit more, but I don't feel as guilty about it any more. I miss the free stuff though.

    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Les Zeppelin again.

    Look you've gone and got me all confused now.

    Is the Rohypnol for me as the interviewee or for my potential employer?

    I am quite partial to the odd sedative but not if it involves a big green Monster willy up my poo pipe
