Actual Statements I’ve Made During a Design Critique with Movie References that My Students Likely Did Not Get


“CSS3 animations?! It’s alive! It’s alive!”

“Flash? We don’t need no stinking Flash!”

Heeeeeeeeeeere’s typography!”

“I am serious… and don’t call me Shirley.”

“I don’t know how to put this, but typography is kind of a big deal.”

“I love the smell of rubber cement in the morning.”

“In one layout? Arial and Helvetica living together… mass hysteria!

“Students, we have a problem.”

“There can be only one.”

“There’s no crying in graphic design!”

“White type on a yellow background, making it almost impossible to read? You’re really flying into the danger zone, Maverick!”

“You call that a layout? This is a layout!”

“You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”

“You’re gonna need a bigger hard disk.”
