    I find this insulting.

      This is based on my experience, Arnold (a bit exaggerated for the purpose of the comic.) Whenever I see my programmer buddies open the terminal I get amazed and at the same time confused at how they do it.

      I'm sure you and other designers are pros using the Terminal—good on you! The comic is not meant for you and I'm sorry that I offended you :)

        I think its hilarious. Every Eng I know talks about how their families and friends think they can hack anything because they code. but people will always choose to find something to complain or get caught up in their feelings about.

        Everyone has this reaction when they first experience terminal.

        Nice post... This is exactly how I felt before being an IT engineer and it is what we feel when the designers talks about stuff we don't see (even yesterday I was "helping" a designer about choosing a type font and everyone was nice and beauty xD)

    he-larious.

    Satire will always be a little insulting, but as a designer who sort of knows his way around front-end code i'm not SUPER insulted. it's funny

    Great as always! But I wish you'd also post these separately on Medium or something, would make it easier to link to them :)

      Hey, Sacha! Thank you! You're right, it's kind of a weird place to post comics, lol.

      I'm gonna do a compilation of different comics on Medium next week, maybe you can link to that when it's up? :)

      I also post them on Twitter, I don't know if that's easy to link to?

    It's a bit sad to think that some designers know so few about their colleagues that they say the same stuff that friends and family says...:/

    Where have all the Buttons gone And where are all the Icons? Where's the Dropdown to sort the rising odds?
