25个疯子设计师的条件

在网路上看到这个,25 reasons you might be a hardcore graphic/web designer,感同身受啊!抄过来,翻译一下,不过还是没有英文的那么专神……不是designer的人,别看了……跳去看第九条就好了。

  1. You’ve had a client that thought they knew more about design than you.
    你有自觉比你更了解设计的客户。(哦!!妈!这种客户简直就是活生生的噩梦!)

  2. Your clients pay you for your professional expertise and skill, yet you’ve run into one of ‘those’ clients, that refuses to take the advice from the very person he/she is paying for advice (you).
    你的客户付钱给你因为他需要你的专长,但是你偏偏会遇上那种拒绝聆听他付钱给予的那个人的意见(你)

  3. You’ve had a client that insisted on using the font “Papyrus,” and you had to hold in your barf as you prepped it [the design] for printing.
    你的客户坚持要使用papyrus字体,然后你必须冒着内伤的风险忍笑为他准备印刷。

  4. You’ve requested a vector logo from a client, and instead, they email you a 72 dpi image they grabbed from a website.
    你向你的客户要求一个Vector标志,但是他们电邮你一个从网上抓来,72dpi的迷你标志。(如果他的标志是超级复杂的那种会想打电话回去骂人。)

  5. You’ve used typography as a texture.
    你把字形当成花纹来使用

  6. You don’t have a favorite font because you love “Typography.” Not Fonts. Choosing a favorite font would be like choosing a favorite child, it’s just wrong.
    你没有特别偏好什么字体,因为你更爱“字面”,要选择一个最喜欢的字体就好像在选择一个最喜欢的小孩……什么东西啊?

  7. You collect as many free stuffs from the interwebs as you can on your hard drive, hoping that one day, that cool project will come along that you can actually use some cool shit on.
    你从网上搜罗了一大堆的免费东西存档在硬碟里,期望有一天有一个酷爆了的计划可以让你使用这些东西。

  8. You’d rather have a free font than a free gallon of gas.
    相较一加仑的汽油,你宁愿要一个免费的字体。

  9. It’s hard to talk about frustrations at your job with a group of friends because they have no idea what “Vector” or “DPI” is, just to name a couple.
    要对你的朋友谈工作上的烦恼是很困难的事,他们完全不懂什么鬼东西是vector,或者DPI……

  10. You’ve had a client ask you to “Make the logo bigger.”
    你的客户说“logo弄大一点!”(Branding不是放很大个logo好不好?)

  11. You’ve had a client that insists on “filling up the space.”
    你的客户总是坚持“填满那些空间!”(空间感你懂不懂?懂不懂?懂不懂!?!)

  12. You’ve learned to over-price web design projects because most clients are more picky about their websites than a high school girl picking out a prom dress.
    你总是对你的网页设计开高价,因为大多数的客户对于他们的网站的挑剔程度,比参加学校晚宴晚装的高中女孩还要厉害。

  13. You feel like you’re “On Call” half of the time because clients procrastinate so much.
    你总是觉得你自己大多数时候都像是在on call,因为你的客户实在是太喜欢展演期限了。(我曾经有一个job被展延了超过一年,厉害吧?)

  14. You know keyboard shortcuts that require 4 fingers.
    你知道需要用四根手指的键盘快捷键(哇!讲中了!有时还要配合滑鼠!)

  15. You’ve lost hours of work because an application crashed, and you had to start over from scratch because you were in the “zone” and forgot to save. Basically, you were having so much fun being creative that saving was the last thing on your mind at the time.
    因为软件当机,你失去了工作了几小时的设计,然后你必须完全由零从头开始因为你实在是太过兴奋沉迷在你的设计里,以至于你已经忘了要储存。(试过一次!1GB的设计完蛋!)

  16. You’ve “Live-Traced” something.
    你有live traced过一些什么东西(人像!而且要live trace头发!妈的差点瞎掉!)

  17. You spend more hours per week looking at CSS showcase sites than you do at the gym.
    你花在css 网站的时间比你在健身房的时间还长(还好我不是搞网页的)

  18. The only thing that would make you happier than the demise of IE6 is world peace.
    唯一能够让你觉得比从此让IE消失更开心的事情就是世界和平。

  19. You’ve done everything but give up a body part to talk a client out of a “Flash Intro.” Yeah. I said it. Flash Intro. Sad, so so sad. (goes along with #2)
    为了说服你的客户放弃使用Flash intro,你什么都做了,只差没切下身体部分给他(参考第二条)(还好……还好我不是网页设计的,但是却有试过为了说服客户放弃某种很lame的主意,讲到口水都干,差点想撞墙死掉算了。)

  20. You have enough fonts on your hard drive to last you for: 1 font per day for about a decade, give or take a year or two.
    你的硬碟里收藏的字体,足够你一天使用一个字体,长达整整一代之久。

  21. You know, explicitly, what a “Flourish” is.
    你完完全全明白,Flourish这个字代表什么意思(ok,这个是字面翻译而已……但是,flourish不是代表卖花的人咯,那个是flourist)

  22. You worry about negative space as much as the content area.
    你设计的时候,你会同时操心空白部分和内容部分。

  23. You get phone calls from friends and family members on a regular, sometimes annoyingly-frequent basis, wanting your services for free or extremely cheap. (and the “portfolio” line makes you want to throw something across the room)
    你的亲朋戚友总爱要求你为他们提供免费或者极度便宜的设计服务(哇!我遇到不少啦!以为设计很容易酱哪!)

  24. You’ve had a client that wants a website they can “update” on their own, but doesn’t know shit about websites.
    你的客户要求你为他们写一个他们可以自己更新的网站,但是他们连网站到底是怎么一回事都搞不懂。

  25. You’re never more than 99% happy with your final product because you believe that EVERYTHING can be improved upon. (especially with those tight-deadline projects)
    你从来没有对你的工作成果有超过99%程度的满意,因为你相信任何东西都可以改进……尤其是那些很赶的projects。
