THINGS SHE SHOULD HAVE SAID #2

So an ex-client of mine contacted me for a freelance job – designing her dad’s 60th birthday invite. That sounds like fun. Trust me, it did. Up until it revealed itself as a ‘Please use your skills to replicate this design I found online, and throw in a couple more colour variations for my selection. Thanks.’ kind of job. Sucks.

And then a friend’s actions made me question if people still bothered with keeping genuine friends, and if we actually burnt the certain few bridges in life, perhaps it wouldn’t weigh us down for the better that’s in store. Travel light, you know.

SAID-1

People these days don’t look for real graphic designers. They have forgotten what it’s like to appreciate genuine designs. Instead, they look for copiers – people who are equipped with the skills required to replicate other people’s designs.

People these days don’t look for real friends. They have forgotten what it’s like to appreciate honesty, humility and to respect the individuality of others. Instead, they look for passers-by – full of fun, but only willing to live with your present.

Everyday of our lives, we don’t really want the real thing like we say we do.
We want the ideal. Almost all the time, oh yes we do.
