Graphic design is a very skilled job that takes years to master, let alone keeping up with evolving software, new techniques, and never ending demands of stupid people that have no idea what goes on between concept and execution but want everything
now now NOW!!!

But I'm not going to rant about the plight of my people...blah blah blah, we all know that graphic designer humor is only funny to graphic designers anyway and there's already plenty of websites dedicated to that cause.

Anyone that knows me can vouch that I will do anyone I know (and like) a favor whenever I can, especially if it's for something I actually enjoy. But it is funny to fuck with people you don't know when they make the mistake of asking stupid favors...which no one does it better than David Thorne. So when I was approached to "do a favor" for a friend of a friend of a friend to design some Natural Gas logo, a job I'm pretty sure they were getting paid to do in the first place but didn't have the skills to produce, I couldn't help but take double the amount of time it would have taken me to give them a real logo to make the logo below with the following email:

Hello and and thank you for the opportunity to do you this favor. I normally don't do such requests as I am very busy doing things I actually enjoy, but since me and my family are such huge contributors to the natural gas epidemic, I am so glad that it is finally being put to such a good use as a source of energy and that I could help out. Although the other logos you had designed were supremely awesome, I thought your company deserved a little more brand recognition instead of just googling other natural gas companies and plugging in your name in their logo, so I hope you enjoy my version below!
Your pal,
When David sends ridiculous things, he always adds a jabbing retort and people fight back and forth with him, but my logo must have offended too much or too little because I never even got a response.

  1. Hilarious! At least you know that one person on the internet fully appreciates the humor.
