‘Designers Touching Their Faces’ is a hilarious Tumblr blog that shows designers adopting a series of hands-on-face poses.
San Francisco-based designer Nick Foster noticed this was a common thing that designers seem to do in photos and the blog he created certainly holds enough proof of this. The pose seems to suggest a thoughtfulness from the designers, but it becomes quite comical when so many of these types of images are put side by side.
The ‘Designers Touching Their Faces’ blog catches designers like Karim Rashid, Tom Ford, James Dyson and Vivienne Westwood in the act of holding a pensive pose with their hands resting on their faces. As Foster notes in the description of the hilarious site: “If you're a designer, you ain't sh*t if you don't touch your face in photographs.”
