You know, a lot of people give graphic designers shit, suggesting that it's not a real profession and that there is nothing difficult about it. I am here to tell you that after trying my hand at it this weekend, those people have no idea what they are talking about. Everything from establishing customer parameters (in a manner of speaking) to getting colors right is a complete and total pain in the padded ass. 

I'm sorry for any shit I've ever given to a graphic designer.
