A long-time friend of mine who’d also been a good client with 30 projects complete chatted me up at a holiday get-together.
Friend: Have you ever heard of Milton Glaser?
Me: Of course, he a very famous designer.
Friend: I bought four of his books. Have you read them?
Me: Yes. I did a paper on him in school.
Friend: Reeeaaally? Huh, not sure why you went to school. After reading these I realized I can do all your work myself, should have saved myself a lot of cash over the years.
Me: …That’s pretty insulting. What program are you using?
Me: Can I see these designs?
Friend: Well not right now, we’re at a party.
Me: Right. Just curious, How are you drawing in PowerPoint?
Friend: Drawing? I can’t draw. I take a picture with my phone of the things I like in the book then put text over the picture in PowerPoint.
Me: You do know that is infringement right?
Friend: It’s called creating a design.
