Graphic Design Is for Lovers

swirly doodle heart.jpgWhy date a graphic designer? “We make the best valentines,” illustrator and toy designer Derek Rippe told Nerve.com when it tapped him for the recent feature, “Dating Advice from Graphic Designers,” part of the website’s ongoing series of occupation-based relationship tips. While another designer recommends a graphic design pick-up line (“Hey baby, I like your Bézier curves”), a designer identified only as “Chris, 23″ makes us wonder about his dedication to his craft. When asked what graphic design has taught him about dating, he offers up a disturbing piece of advice: “Don’t judge a person by their logo.” What’s next? Ordering us not to choose a restaurant based upon its outdoor signage typeface? Heartbreaker!
