Old School Designer (OSD): “Let’s have a look at your portfolio.”
Young Designer (YD): “Here is a package design for tampons.”
OSD: “You don’t see that in a student portfolio every day. Well… It’s a good daring design! There’s some great things going on here: Creative spacing; unique font usage; striking color choices. However, I will say it doesn’t strike me as very feminine.”
YD: “Exactly. I designed it to be gender neutral.”
OSD: “Uh… Gender neutral. For tampons?”
YD: “Yes. Because females aren’t the only ones who menstruate.”
OSD: Blinks. Stares for second or two. Blinks again.
