10 memes that all designers will understand

It's hard being a designer when you're surrounded by people who don't understand what you do, and don't get what makes you so cross about spec work and badly-kerned text.

It's all right, though, because the internet understands. And this part of the internet understands particularly well. Welcome to your new favourite Instagram account: screensaviors. It's a fantastic flow of red-hot memes with a powerful design flavour, and more than a hint of mild Sagmeister obsession. And who can blame it, hey?

Follow away! But just to give you a bit of a taste, here are 10 of our favourite posts; you see, it really does understand.

Jim McCauley is a writer, performer and cat-wrangler who started writing professionally way back in 1995 on PC Format magazine, and has been covering technology-related subjects ever since, whether it's hardware, software or videogames. A chance call in 2005 led to Jim taking charge of Computer Arts' website and developing an interest in the world of graphic design, and eventually led to a move over to the freshly-launched Creative Bloq in 2012. Jim now works as a freelance writer for sites including Creative Bloq, T3 and PetsRadar, specialising in design, technology, wellness and cats, while doing the occasional pantomime and street performance in Bath and designing posters for a local drama group on the side.
