Stay Away From These Annoying Design Trends in 2017(medium.com)

    I was just at Adidas global headquarters in New York City pitching a marketing campaign for kanyes new line of shoes. I started my presentation off the way I often do, with a story. I told them of a time to where design work was respected due to its inherently challenging nature. A time where not just any city slicker could pick up their MacBook Pro and design a master piece...

    But when this medium article dropped. Things changed.

    Kanye walked in to the meeting and told me "I DONT NEED YOU ANYMORE DAVID STEELCART, SON OF CORNELIUS STEELKART. I KNOW HOW TO DESIGN NOW THAT THE ANNOYING DESIGN TRENDS MEDIUM ARTICLE DROPPED." I stood there flabbergasted, not knowing what to do. I walked out of the meeting in tears. Head bowed down.

    This medium article single handidly changed design in 2017. Now that people know what annoying design trends to avoid in the current year, we're all going to be out of work.

    Damn you ev Williams for creating medium, and damn you OP for crafting such a game changing article.
