Confessions of a Designer by Anneke Short

The design field holds many preconceptions. People don’t understand the thought process of a designer and most likely a developer. This collection of quotes showcase some of the most common quotes that designers say. Anneke Short has crafted the following minimal posters regarding this manner.

“Personally, I would say that the biggest preconceived idea is that a project will take however long it takes to sketch it up, whereas nine times out of ten, it is the concept and not the implementation that takes time. Hence ‘just come up with a few quick logos’ being a total oxymoron.” – Anneke Short

    Mac is better than PC, I don’t believe so. I’ll argue that all day.

  2. cat says:

    I agree with Taylor. Why would Macs be better, you hipster?

  3. Dog says:

    All designers are the same and you speak for all of them. Got it.

    I used PC’s for 20 years and Mac for the last 10 and won’t go back. Has nothing to do with design, just functionality.

  4. You had me up until the “Macs are better than PCs” poster. Are we still stuck on that silly PC vs. Mac thing? At this point in time, all the relevant tools run equally well on both. Get over that. :-)

    I have a $9000 Mac Pro and a £4000 PC, both of which I use for video editing. The cheaper PC lays waste to the Mac, every. single. time.
