On Thursday, February 11, 2016, I was formally informed that my pitiable-looking graphics designs were ... how shall we say it? ... UGLY!
Mind you, this was said by one of my all-time FAVORITE persons on Earth: the otherwise wonderful, TAMIE MYERS!
Who'd think that such a beautiful young lady could bust up an old man SO BADLY?!?!?! lol :-)
But, alas, my friend Tamie is CORRECT!
And I kinda HEAVILY "suspected" it long before she so bravely brought it to my attention!
But, I love words!
I HAVE to SHARE words!
And, I'm comfortable with driving the heck out of English words!
I love graphics, too!
But, I have no more business rendering graphics than I have preparing a meal for other than survival purposes! :-)
The above being said, let me show you a striking example of how Tamie Myers, my graphic design SUPERIOR, so rightly demonstrated why I should be shy about My Ugly Designs.
My original design is the pitiable looking #1.
Did *I* win?
Or do I have to do a major, major, MAJOR, major crowdfunding to pay Tamie Myers to artfully render some of my 100,000 acronyms and countless thousands of micro-essays? :-)
How say YOU?
FYI: Here are a few more of my words which Tamie graphically re-rendered for consideration:
I agree with you on both sides you present, Melissa: I look more at content than design but, I love the way Tamie rendered the messages to look more palatable... it's the difference between eating beans out of a can and a four-course meal! :-)
