30 Reasons Why You Shouldn't Date a Design Student

We think differently, we look at things differently, we analyse things differently. Design Students are fucking weird and we are un-dateable.

  1. Pinterest is already their everything
  2. They will make a workspace whenever and wherever they please
  3. and they'll ruin surfaces with blade marks
  4. They'll choose a place to eat based on how aesthetically pleasing the interior is
  5. All of they're Instagram photos have to be edited immaculately
  6. They will never shut up about fonts
  7. especially about how bad Comic Sans is and how great Helvetica is
  8. They'll judge the menu design before they look at what's on the menu
  9. Printers become they're best friend and worst enemy
  10. Pixelated photos are equally annoying as they are hilarious
  11. You'll spark the biggest argument you'll have in your life if you state that those 2 shades of red look exactly the same.
  12. They excessively buy things they don't need because they like the packaging
  13. Every idea has to be shared and/or written down
  14. They'll drag you to see talks/exhibitions/gigs of people who you've never heard of
  15. Asking them to simply print something for you becomes a questionnaire
  16. They will download multiple Apps to customise the design of their phone
  17. They even need they're computer screensaver to look good
  18. They require mass amounts of either Coffee or Tea
  19. They'll always ask for your opinion on they're work
  20. Brainstorming is a normal part of decision-making
  21. They're always uninspired at the wrong times
  22. Gift-wrap shopping takes longer than necessary
  23. Get used to rants about dumb design briefs
  24. Once they learn coding, they'll never speak words you understand ever again
  25. They'll get frustrated when they have to look at a website that uses HTML5
  26. Every film that you see will have to be analysed like you're back in English class
  27. They're glued to their Macs 
  28. They spend too much money at Art Supply stores
  29. Wherever you go, they'll always point out typography flaws
  30. They will never sleep and then complain about it
