The Missing Cat Poster

If you want something done right, you should do it yourself. The last thing you want to do is give it to David Thorne, especially if it has anything to do with a cat. Shannon asked him to make a poster about her lost cat. What she got was not exactly what she had in mind.
Having worked with designers for a few years now, I would have assumed you understood, despite our vague suggestions otherwise, we do not welcome constructive criticism. I don't come downstairs and tell you how to send text messages, log onto Facebook and look out of the window. I am willing to overlook this faux pas due to you no doubt being preoccupied with thoughts of Missy attempting to make her way home across busy intersections or being trapped in a drain as it slowly fills with water. I spent three days down a well once but that was just for fun.

There are several other drafts of the poster in this email exchange. Link -via Buzzfeed

in the time it took the woman to write the original E-mail she could have made the poster herself... you don't need a graphic designer to make a missing cat poster. paper, marker, picture, and photo copier.

yes, I'm a graphic designer.

I could not stop laughing when I read this, especially when he told the story of the cat he liked, and talked about remote control dogs. He's pretty witty, but she should have realized that she could have done it herself for the time that she spent corresponding with him... The end result was really simple, a five-year-old could do it, but the one's preceding it were indeed neat and hilarious, especially "no reward".
