Used properly, computers are fantastic tools to foster creativity, especially in the design space; however, in her series 'Confessions of a Designer' artist Anneke Short comically sets the record straight about what it means to be a "real" designer.

She discusses topics like PCs versus Macs, Comic Sans and Photoshop. The messages are hilarious because of their simply straight-up honesty.
