6. Yes, it does matter whether the color of the ocean in your latest Instagram is “dark teal” or “duck egg”.

7. You wonder why “CMYK” isn’t one of the 5 love languages.


8. Your biggest life question is how to create a logo that is modern, classic, simple, and complex all at the same time, while STILL being able to satisfy the client.

9. A work week is no less than 100 hours.

10. Certain stock models have basically become celebrities to you at this point.


11. Your nightmares are subtitled with Apple Chancery.
