I’m a logo-er, I am!
Following on from my last blog/rant which was a year ago, here’s my latest offering!
So often when I’m out and about I get asked what I do for a living… ‘I’m a graphic designer’, is usually my answer. To which I can get any of these replies…
‘What do you design, then? Interiors?’
‘Er, what’s a graphic designer..?’
‘Oh, ok. Does that mean that you work from your spare bedroom..?’
‘Isn’t it about time you got a real job?’
‘Graphic designer? Does that mean you draw stuff?’
Over the years, it’s been called different things…
- Commercial artist
- Communication designer
- Brand consultant
- Design consultant
None of them really explain it any better. So I’ve struggled along trying to explain what I do.
Until recently, that is. My six year old daughter suddenly said, ‘Daddy, when I grow up I want to be like you…’
‘How do you mean, Daisy?’
‘I want to work at what you do… I want to be a logo-er…You design logo’s Daddy, that means you’re a logo-er. And that’s what I want to be!’
So there you go. From now on I want to be called a logo-er. And if anyone asks me what I do for a living, you know what I’ll tell them…
