These descriptive illustrations examine industry-wide creative stereotypes. Conceived by Peter Cortez and Joe Sayaman, 'Work Wankers' is a way for creative industry professionals to vent online and identify common personality types and unwanted work behavior. Whether you work at an ad agency, design firm or similar creative workplace, these pictures might help you categorize some of your least favorite co-workers or correct your own bothersome behavior.
The website also has a 'Call out a Wanker' feature that allows people to anonymously submit their own photos of offensive actions. However, Sayaman and Cortez are not looking to curate a creative stereotype bullying forum. They acknowledge, "We were very aware that this idea could go very mean-spirited, so we tried to diffuse the potential venom with cuteness."
