Halloween is just around the corner. Before you assume you’re too old for spooky season, if you really think about it, there are ghosts in the design world: the sort of clients who try to skip out of a payment.
There are, apparently, several other ways you can commemorate Halloween as a grown-up creative professional. The design community is delighting in a Twitter thread, started by professor Mitch Goldstein from the College of Art and Design at RIT, suggesting simple costume ideas that allow you to stay true to your career.
Get this: the costumes all cost no money nor effort.
While the general public might not grasp the concepts of these “outfits,” design nerds are likely to get a kick out at people “dressed” as kerning (you can embody it by standing close to others), tracking (just stay far away), and lowercase (take your kids trick-or-treating with you).
Have a chuckle at the Twitter thread below.
Halloween costume idea: Dress normally. Stand very close to people.— Mitch Goldstein (@mgoldst) October 7, 2019
Tell them you're kerning.
Lay on top of someone and say you are tight leading.— Sarah Barrett (@imsarahbarrett) October 7, 2019
Me: Well I’m tracking and I’m gonna need about 200pts of space between you and me! 😂— Justin Marshall (@jmarshallBKLYN) October 7, 2019
Or Stand next to some slightly shorter than you but & tell them your their UPPERCASE— kiko84 (@kikocasa844) October 7, 2019
