Fesignerd’s Top 10 Pet Peeves Listicle

I hate puppy spam.

I hate it when a new roll of toilet paper is glued together so tight, it makes finding the start and end on scotch sticky tape seem easy. I hate it even more if you do manage to unravel that same loo paper on the unglued side, and somehow always get the short end.

I hate price stickers – You always need some volatile, highly flammable liquid to remove the sticky residue from your brand new [insert purchased product here].

I hate it when people in cars feel cloaked and safe enough, to pick their noses and teeth.

I hate it when people leave things open, like toothpaste.

I hate people who do not comprehend personal space.

I hate losing… at anything, to anyone.

I hate feeling stupid or uninformed.

I hate people who has the world on a silver platter, that choose not to take it.
(Usually pretty girls and 2nd/3rd generation rich boys. I hate generalising. *chuckle*)

I hate the Fox network for canceling Firefly.

Fesignerd Tip #004 – Typography

Fesignerd Typography Tip for everyday users: There is nothing funny about Comic Sans. Don’t use it. Ever. If system fonts is your repertoire, stick to Arial, Calibri and Trebuchet. It’s not boring, it’s legible, professional and shows that you’re over 13.

Fesignerd Typography Tip for designers: So many free fonts, so little time. Most inexperienced designers find it pertinent to use their whole fontbook on a single design, like typography democrats. Stick to < 3 fonts per design. When you’re using 1 font, stick to < 3 different point sizes. Having 4 billion different fonts and font sizes on your design looks messy, unplanned and unbalanced.

Do less…

Traffic

Traffic

I had the great fortune of spending three hours in traffic yesterday. Accidents have a way of turning most highways into a four lane parking lot. This drives me insane – I found myself going through the natural grief recovery steps:

1. Denial – “No, this can not be happening to me.”

2. Anger/Resentment – “GET OUT OF MY WAY! Don’t you dare! ARE you insane WOMAN!? Stop texting! MOVE ALREADY!”

3. Bargaining – “Perhaps I can take the next off-ramp, and try going through the suburbs.”

4. Depression – “The inroads are most probably clogged up too – I’m doomed…”

5. Acceptance – “FML”
