When Creatives Go Bad: Welcome to the Confessional

Chris Dickman Fri, 01/18/2013 - 09:20

The life of a creative is not an easy one, and provides many temptations to stray from the straight and narrow path of design righteousness. If you feel the need to unburden yourself of a creative slip or two, the good news is that you can do so on the Creative Confessional site, which promises to let you "seek forgiveness for your creative sins." Visitors can then vote to either provide absolution or condemn your public contrition.

If you're not in the confessional mood it's still worth perusing the posts, which typically combine a grain of truth with a major dose of irony, such as "I take home leftover food from client meetings to feed my family." A pithy reflection of the current state of the economy, indeed. My favorite post so far is "I always use Comic Sans for periods in EVERYTHING I HAVE EVER DONE," with visitors surprisingly divided on whether to condemn or forgive this typographic transgression. I've posted a few favorites below, with the full collection available on the Creative Confessional site.

I know these kind of things happen in the creative business, but that doesn't mean we should get depressed and leave everything. One should be a fighter.
