These Illustrations Tackle Tough Questions Designers Ask Themselves Daily

Think about the decisions that you as a designer have to ask yourself all the time. What font is in this logo? What size is this graphic supposed to be? Should I put on pants today? The fine folks at Yoke, a creative agency based in Melbourne, Australia, face these questions just like the rest of us, and they decided to do a very designer-y thing and illustrate some of the questions that they run into on a daily basis. Don't believe me? C'mon, you know better than that. You just have to scroll down.

Bags or boxes? What makes the perfect type of packaging for your client? Heck, we don't know (you were the one in the pitch meeting, Dale), but if we ever find ourselves in a pickle, we flip a coin. The fact that it's one of those Harvey Dent/The Dark Knight models is inconsequential.

Since the dawn of the input device, the question has always been should you use a mouse, trackpad or stylus/tablet combo to design? Heck, we don't know, we have a hard enough time deciding what to have for lunch.

Do you look at this image and think, "Yeah, those two look the same." No, of course you don't, because you're a rational human being that understands that having two different Pantone numbers means that these two shades — while similar — are clearly not identical. And that makes a difference!

Honestly, we don't get the tough call here. When it comes to quantities of coffee, it's always the one on the right.

Type anatomy? We say this one is a life-or-death decision. Who wants janky type, amirite?

How you align your text can make the difference between a perfectly designed piece and absolute garbage. Better choose right!
