We all have our favorite client stories, embarrassing design flaws and never-ending user requests which are all just a part of what we, as designers and developers, encounter very often in our daily work routine. In this new post series on Smashing Magazine, we’d like to put some of these situations into the spotlight and discuss them with you. The cartoons are all dedicated to Web design and also have a comic twist about everything happening around the Web and latest trends.
The main character of the cartoons is Fleaty, a talented, hard-working designer with big ambitions yet not that much luck when it comes to clients. Hopefully, Fleaty will put a smile on your face and maybe remind all of us of the flaws we have, and help us finally get rid of them. The creative mind behind the Smashing Cartoons is our talented illustrator Ricardo Gimenes.
We’ll be adding a new cartoon every week; the latest cartoon is presented on the Smashing Magazine’s sidebar as well as on the Smashing Cartoons page. There you will also find all previous issues of the Smashing Cartoons series for your convenience.
Fleaty’s experience in June:
