Sizzlin’ Summer Savings for #NationalClerihewDay

​Ode to Sweet Jeans…
My half Arab pinto, Sweet Lil’ Norma Jean. 

She pins her ears and instead looks sorta mean. 
Then tempt her with an apple, or how ’bout carrot;

Off she is prancing n’ bucking so’s I can not bare it.

Learn something new every day. And today I learned what is a Clerihew. 

Wikipedia defines clerihew as follows:

clerihew ( /ˈklɛrhjuː/) is a whimsical, four-line biographical poem invented by Edmund Clerihew Bentley. The first line is the name of the poem’s subject, usually a famous person put in an absurd light, or revealing something unknown or spurious about them. The rhyme scheme is AABB, and the rhymes are often forced. The line length and metre are irregular. Bentley invented the clerihew in school and then popularized it in books. One of his best known is this (1905):

Ask The Designer: Feedback Cliches?

Rest assured, graphic designers are professionals and can handle your criticisms.  We do realize that you won’t find everything flowers and sunshine on the first few drafts.  However, we did sweat and cry over that project, so just please be considerate.  And be specific.  Vagueness, cliches or overused feedback simply doesn’t help. If I hear “make it pop” one more time, really I just might pop a cap! Okay, maybe not quite.  But cliches can sure send my head into a spin.

Rather than saying, “make the logo bigger,” try using phrases such as, “The logo needs more emphasis.” Or “The logo is difficult to see.”  Solid feedback will endear you to your graphic designer as their best client ever and your design project will be all the more successful and strong.
