I suck really bad at designing and it makes me cry at night. And during the day too…

Excellent, Mr. Emo.

Man, my camera rocks. And that is a badass movie star face you got on in the picture.

P.S. nice type.

nerdartist

Is that what Macaulay Culkin looks like these days?

Freaky.

creatordesign

whether i like it or not, she controls my mind… but, i’m whipped, so i’m okay with that.

hehe the picture looks like shes pulling my head off of my shoulders.

CHEAP!

It’s not even like you had the lowest rated dsnlg ever …. and they didn’t give up.

inman

Hahaha, best Designologue ever.

…the gimp one I mean. ;D Are you guys really giving up? Bummer. There’s been abandoned Designologues before but they’ve never announced themselves before. Maybe I should take care of this…

bharper

maybe I am way off base here, but i think this 3rd image is the best one in the series. it relates to the theme. it gets your attention. it doesn’t say anything i don’t agree with.

tacosaurus

great image rating too.

bedingfield

I think this latest image is all part of the plan…we’re hooked on this DSNLG now.

And for once, I’ll bet most of us actually agree with bharper’s evaluation.

Hell…I gave it a 4, though I think the letterspacing is a bit tight…and some variance in the weight of the typeface from line 1 to line 2 would add more emphasis to “because it sucked.” The leading is good, but the d’s should both be aligned right with each other and the period should extend in the margin.

Other than that, bravo. Very conceptual.

creatordesign

Can’t tell you if the designologue is over or not, that’s for you guys to wait and see. ;)

However, the reason probably no one understands what is going on in the designologue is probably due to Inspiracy not explaining what the theme of it is after he posted his first image.

Now Showing: If your life was a movie, what would the poster be for it? Design a movie poster based on your life.

randy

Hook, line, and sinker…

bharper

word, bedingfield!

You don’t dig my comments?

bedingfield

bharper…no, it’s just that I bet almost everyone finally agrees with you on this one. Haha.

I dig your comments…adds some life to the place (and sometimes conflict as well).

creatordesign

Haha, we’re failures as designers in your eyes now. :(

Me and inspiracy are going to do another DSNLG, only this time, it’s not going to suck.

bharper

Failures? Far from it. Have you seen this 3rd images rating? It’s almost a 4. Some dsnlgers have never gotten such a rating while all of us have sucked at times, just ask Bedingfield. The key is to pull it out of the dumps and prove your point and yourself.

nerdartist

Quitters are lame.

You can do it. Bring it.

fashionvictim

I agree. Don’t quit turn it around. That’s why there are eight imgs. It’s about the process.

inman

Ditto on the bomb that l’artiste de nerd dropped.

(Anybody know the word for nerd en Francais? Babel gives me “ballot” which translates back to “bundle.” Not quite.)

nerdartist

Je ne parle pas francais, unfortunately…

bharper

“Premiere de la classe” is one way to say it. “Intello” is another. Intello means, like, intellectual.

inman

I like that last one—too bad it’s not a real French word! L’artiste de l’intellect. Double apostrophication rocks!

You know I still haven’t rated this image…

creatordesign

Total 180. Actually going somewhere now.

Winners never quit; quitters never win. Long live Ahlnold.

I feel like the last one (#5) comes out of nowhere; has no relation except the governator tag to #4.

Sure, it’s a response to the conversation, but I feel like you just used black text on white because everyone liked it so much the last time you used black text on white.

“the governator would never quit” just makes me think of him grabbing T&A, and if you didn’t quit that you’d be a really bad boyfriend.

inspiracy

nerdartist, you hit the nail on the head.

nerdartist

Thanks, I was worried after I hit “submit” that I was being all mean.
