4 Funnies for Designers and Freelancers

August 27, 2010

You've worked hard all week right? So reward yourself today with some well-deserved internet humor. Here are four hilarious comics and videos that will speak to the freelancer and designer in you and put a smile on your face: 1. The Design Gangsta video is as funny as the use of the rap song "Damn it Feels Good to be a Gangsta," in the beginning of the movie "Office Space." 2. A friend sent me a comic from The Oatmeal, and I've been hooked ever since. The screen grab below is from "How a Web Design Goes Straight To Hell." Also check out "Why I Believe Printers Were Sent from Hell," and "Why Working From Home is both Awesome and Horrible." 3. If you've ever had to justify the cost of your graphic design services to a client then this video will make you laugh. The actors portrays the absurd struggle of billing a client, but in everyday circumstances such as at a video store or in a restaurant. 4. N.C. Winters is a talented graphic artist with running comic strips on FreelanceSwitch.com and Mac.appstorm.net. Check in regularly for laughs about tech and the freelance lifestyle. Below is a screenshot from FreelanceSwitch.com, showing N.C. Winter's very relatable character - a designer working at home. He's got a tiki mug and is shown later in this strip to be wearing a pair of bunny-slippers in his home office. Feel free to add your own humorous picks in the comments!

Jennifer has several Oatmeal posters hanging in her cube, so we get to enjoy them every day.
