I don’t want to hear a peep from anyone about how “uncool” memes are. It’s a slow news day and I’m a sellout. Besides, this meme is only mildly narcissistic, and you know how much designers like to talk about themselves. Don’t front, y’all. I won’t be passing this meme along in typical virus fashion; instead, all of you dear readers are free to bust out the nostaligia and perpetuate it if you so choose.
Where was I one year ago?
Hmmm. Let’s consult the archives, shall we? Oh yes, I was finishing up my design for Zaadz with my effervescent design buddies. I was also in the midst of making trips to Plano, Texas to meet, negotiate, and plan employment details with my soon-to-be compadres at Bright Corner.
Where was I five years ago?
Where was I ten years ago?
I was finishing up my college program, an Electronic Graphics degree with a focus on 3D animation. And playing tons of Quake. The web was so young. Oh, interweb! I barely knew thee!
I know I’m not the only person amused by the you mentioning that “designers like to talk about themselves.” This from someone I could see giving an oral presentation using nothing but non-verbal communication.
I mean “talk” in the abstracted sense, of course. You’d be lucky to drag a dozen words out of my mouth in meatspace, but in my case “talking” = typing. ;)
