On Being Sufferable

This Colbert bit about Facebook’s new Like emoji is only barely parody. It’s an on-the-nose treatment of my least favorite current trend of Designers Cloyingly Talking about Design. It makes my stomach hurt.

This Mike Monteiro video, however, is a nice contrast to the kind of talk Colbert is satirizing, and it’s one of the reasons I like Monteiro so much. He talks about design like it’s a job, not like he just invented intercourse.
