Reform School

Gelatobaby’s recent post on knitting sent me straight to ReForm School. Being obsessed with paper, I was drawn to their literature section and found The Most Perfect Card on the Paper Planet.

Perfect for whom, you ask? Well, perfect for me. Or, more accurately, perfect for the designers who have me as their client. My dirty secret: I can get around in Illustrator just enough to pull together a visual thought. I happen to know that this is one of those things that make designers crazy.

I know I’m not the only design client out there that leaves you wondering why we hired you in the first place. I’ve heard more than one story about rough visual ideas in various forms ending up in a designer’s inbox with a note to “make it look like this”.

I’m tempted to mail one of these cards to every designer I work with. Unsigned, of course. For I have no interest in actually being reformed. Just a little note to say, “I know I make you crazy. It’s not going to get any better, but thanks for putting up with me.”
