When Designers Get Lazy
I was at the supermarket with some friends the other week, when we came across these handy reusable shopping bags shaped like various produce. We oohed at the chubby little carrots and aahed at the squish-worthy watermelons. Then we saw the cherries.
That, my friends, is what happens when designers get lazy. I can almost picture it:
Hey, how do you feel about using PANTONE 12-0643 for the color of the lemon? Or should we just stick with 13-0752? — Monday
I checked with the bag supplier, and we’re good to go on the irregular shape for the carrot. — Tuesday
I just e-mailed you the revisions for the dragonfruit design. The seed spacing wasn’t quite right on the first version. — Wednesday
Make sure that the seeds are not too evenly sized. We want the watermelon to look somewhat realistic. — Thursday
Ah, fuck it. Just slap some damn cherries on it and call it a day. Anyone up for a drink later? — Friday
