A Designer Resignation

If you’re going to quit today, may I suggest you do it thusly:

The artist behind the creation is a designer named Juan Carlos Pagan. Perhaps ’twas he who left this Dear John image on the desktop of his temporary work station. Or perhaps someone else copped Pagan’s Photoshop for his own dramatic departure. Either way, that’s some good stuff right there.

One day maybe I’ll have a job I can ditch with indignant impunity. Or any job. Or any computer skills. For now, simple, analog, and non-employed, I occasionally leave myself Post-Its that say, alternately, “I quit” and “you’re fired” — keeps me humble.
