Let’s face it: there are a LOT of moments in the graphic design industry that make designers facepalm!

There are moments that seem to last forever; like clients who have no idea what they’re talking about and insist that they do, and they choose crappy fonts, to the software that doesn’t cooperate or crashes at exactly the wrong moment (we are looking at you, Photoshop!). The list is endless!

It’s headache after headache, and makes your work day a tiring and awful experience. You might throw something if one more thing goes wrong.

So to help you keep your cool, we’re honoring those wonderfully irritating moments through a beloved form of visual presentation: GIFs!

Feel free to use them to visually express your feelings when the need arises.

1. Clients who keep asking for a different font

4. Your best ideas come to you when you’re going to bed…

5. …But when you sit down, ready to work–

Can't Think Of Anything

6. “By the way, I want it done by tomorrow.”

Start Panicking

7. “You have complete creative control–

8. “–hold on, that isn’t quite what I had in mind.”

9. Slow Payments
