Hands on experience does not make you good at something. And really, this is the internet. It doesn't matter if you are or aren't a graphic designer. That, you can lie about. But you can't fake being incredibly wrong.
And nevertheless, I think we agree. You have said you've seen better work (though why you defend such horrible work, who knows), and I have never pretended I'm not a jerk. Do the two have any bearing on each other? Not at all! The same designers are still untalented designers and have no respect for the spirit of this site regardless of my own personality. Refute that, o graphic design god.
Why thank you for calling me a graphic design God. I never proclaimed to be one and said thatI am not at the same level as many here. So I guess we have a bunch of SUPER God's on this site. I feel so humble now.
For one thing I would never work for somebody like you, but that's a moot point, I don't think either of us has that goal in mind. Besides, my commentary is mostly calling you out, so you are right, who would hire me for graphics based on what I write? They would be a fool to base a decision on that, but apparently you would from your own statement.
And you are correct, hands on experience does not necessarily make somebody good, but that does have at the very least higher learning and better education and understanding on how things really are. Use Movie reviewers as an example, they are in that business and make a living of doing what they do. Could they make a better movie themselves? Hell no, but they have REAL world experience. Something you are very ignorant about.
You are correct, anybody can lie about their experience on the internet, and that is why I meet with my clients in person as well as show them my resume and portfolio and that speaks for itself. But you wouldn't know that, would you, since you have obviously no experience other then being a self proclaimed expert. You can't even tell me what you do for a living, what does that say about you? I don't care if you are an office jockey, I won't make fun of you for it, but that would make me understand where you come from. Maybe you are a high level executive (doubt it) at a marketing firm, that would also give me a better understanding and maybe actually make me rethink some things. Yet you hide. Too bad, you could not just lose supporters, you could possibly gain some in your quest as well. Too bad.
And as much as you think I defend some of the work here, you are incorrect. Very few maybe, but I defend against people like you who have nothing good to contribute. No constructive criticism, just rudeness and insults. In that process you waste time bickering with me, which leaves you less time to be rude to the designers. Sorry to tell you, but I am succeeding in what I try to do. You have less time to be rude to people who are just trying to design things. Success! And it annoys you, if it didn't you wouldn't even bother replying to me. Another success on my part. Thanks for playing tho. k thx
