35 Design Jokes That Will Make You Laugh

Have you ever had one of those bad days when it seems that everything is crashing around you? Fatigue, stress, nerves, tight deadlines or a difficult client often makes us want to escape. Regardless of the jobs we have, we are all human and we need from time to time a bit of relaxation to change our mood. This is where design jokes come along. It not only helps us overcome the difficult moments but also reload our batteries and focus on the projects we have to do. There are many ways to get ahead of the difficult moments: some of us listen to music, others do sports, others go for a walk, or others just dream eyes open J. But I think the simplest and easiest way to change our mood (or not even get into the dark and cold cave of the bad mood) is, well, to laugh.
😄

As the saying goes, a day without laughter is a day wasted! And well, once again, we all need a good laugh to break up the ho-hum and the stress of everyday life.

Cheer up with these 35 funny design jokes that will definitely make you laugh! I selected some really funny jokes turned into images, cartoons, memes, photos, posters, drawings and many other funny images. All of them are about subjects such as Photoshop, designer school, designer work, freelancing, fonts, clients, icons, creative process, and so on!

Check them out and enjoy!

Designers vs regular people

Some people say the graphic designers are extremely complicated human beings. Let’s take a look at this real proof of how they perceive the colors.

Photoshop always works

I don’t know what’s in the mind of this patient, but for sure, he would like the surgeon to be as good as the graphic designer.

Gotcha!

That delightful moment when you get the invoice from your web designer :). Some pills against heart attack, please!

Why Photoshop is more powerful than Sketch

It could be a good thing if the designer knows what he is doing. And it seems is for free, so… I would expect a lot of people to park there :).

What’s your ideal client?

You know the life of a graphic designer is pretty hard, but… you can keep dreaming, right?

How to piss the Rock

Relax, this is almost the regular conversation between a graphic designer and his client, especially when the last one doesn’t know what’s all about!

Thanks to the Courier, we have different fonts

Sometimes, the regular people ask themselves why we love so much to be a graphic designer….. conferring character to the fonts is just one of the reasons.

How web designers ask for help

Maybe you should think better if you have the crazy idea of web designer from drowning. Unless you are not a web designer also, God knows what you could understand!

The difference between doctors and web designers

Thankfully, the doctors are not treated like web designers. Otherwise, we would have just designers and no doctors :).

What’s missing here?

Life isn’t always #000000 and #FFFFFF…. even if we would want this. Does someone see the missing of the gray area?

Comic Sans walks into a bar….

Even if the characters have a modern twist here….. does someone see the picture of a classic western?

Font guide

I might be taught, but I just hope you’ll never follow this guide when you’ll choose the font for your next design project.

The Little Mermaid

If the Little Mermaid would have been a font…. Probably she would have looked like this. Fortunately, she’s just a character of Hans Christian Andersen’s imagination and a beautiful story. Let’s stay to the origins. 🙂

Corporate graphic design guide

Maybe you know this process… Maybe you experience this process… But don’t be sad, you are not alone :(.

Did you know?????

….. the most regular people don’t have any idea what’s going on if you speak Klingon with them? Please repeat it in English! Please….

How people see the design

Do you see the process here? Wow! This is actually happening! Don’t tell me I haven’t warned you!

Self-discipline according to web designers

I know the web designers could be the hardest workers on the planet, but…. Do you need a time management app? An efficient one?

There are always two sides of a coin

The most important part is to find the balance between both of them…. Can you see the picture???

The many emotions of a programmer

Like all of us, the programmers are also people. They live their emotions like all people. So, do not wonder why their invoices are so big. Just see what happens to them after they complete a project…

When a client says “We love your style”……

…. You could expect something like this. Don’t tell me I haven’t warned you! Just 1 question: do you think it could be better NOT to like your style???

Starting another side project

Just remember to keep the track of them, even if this could be a daunting task. In the end, you don’t want your projects to look like a war field, do you?

This is the eternal question….

For civilians, it’s a matter of imagination…. But…. does the equation make sense to you? Maybe someone can explain it to us, novices :).

Sex and design

From time to time, we should go back to the basics and listen to the advice of the wisest ones than us. This is one of those situations…..

Don’t use that tone with me!

The designers always say the colors have a voice and express a message. But….. can you imagine a real conversation between them? This could be an option :).

Make the logo bigger

….. But, please keep it in your mind that it should fit somewhere….. on print…. or in some different screen sizes….

Can you turn this around…

…. so, we can see more of the front? Again, a very-often heard question…. This is happening when the clients don’t know Photoshop is a design software, not a cloning or a 3D printing one :).

The designer has many faces…

… I’m sure you know this. Just pick how many you want and tell us which are yours :).

The creative process

You shouldn’t believe what you hear: the creative process is nice, smooth and you have time for everything. Rather, it looks like here :).

The real life of a graphic designer

Never, but never…. do not take into account what your friends think you do. It might be a huge difference.

Every designer in this world knows this

I’m sure you have been there with at least one of your client. But here’s the tip: save just the last two files and maybe you’ll not suffer anymore.

This is how they did it

Back to the origins…. Does someone remember how to do some handcraft work?

We are designers, not tools

This is a global message for clients around the world who think the designers are just some tools ready to execute their weird and ugly ideas. We don’t have any problems with the screwdrivers.

The Unforgiven

And now? What’s next? Or even better: what’s the reward?

The best endorser

Sometimes, a barter could be a smart choice. Especially when your client is Santa Clause. 🙂

Why we call it italic

This is what italic looks like in real life. Does anyone have any doubt?
