“I’m a graphic designer” cinematic quips.

Created Friday, April 17, 2015

Check out this entertaining video we came across on YouTube; that is a Cinematic Portrayal of Graphic Designers in Film & Television.

A film by Ellen Mercer (ellen-mercer.co.uk) & Lucy Streule (lucystreule.com). Let us know if you have come across anymore.

Being a Graphic Designer must be one of the best jobs in the world. We certainly love being graphic designers, here at White Space Advertising, but it’s interesting to see how other people’s reactions when you state that you are a Graphic Designer.

I remembered once being heckled by a comedian at a comedy club in London a few years ago. I was sat right next to the stage, directly in the firing line, and before too long I was singled out. Firstly, because I wore glasses, so I had all the ‘four-eyed’ jokes aimed at me, with the odd ‘Joe 90′ and “Milky Bar Kid’ quotes thrown in for good measure. But before too long I was asked what I did for a living, to which I answered: “I’m a graphic designer”. This was going to go one of two ways, but unfortunately for me this led to even more ridicule from the comedian as he quickly gestured the male masturbation hand movement, bringing rapturous applause from the audience. Fortunately, I saw the funny side of it and laughed along with the rest of the audience.
