Every job has its pros and cons, and while society is well introduced to most positions, the daily lives of some still remain a mystery to the general public. For example, take designers. These nocturnal beings, hiding over the screens of computers, are certainly one of the more exotic creatures of whom we know very little. To shed some light on these individuals, an artist known as Cauliflower Time has undertaken a 100-day challenge where she hilariously illustrates the struggles designers go through.

According to DesignTAXI, she sketches rough ideas on sticky notes when inspiration strikes, and then copies them over to Adobe Sketch on her iPad Pro. "Most of my ideas stem from the silly and often outrageous things that I hear daily, which I then translate into comic form." From questionable office politics to the creative process review, these situations are without a doubt gear-grindingly annoying. Scroll down to check out the funny images and let us know in the comments if you face anything similar!

NO MORE FREE LABOR!!! Everyone needs to stop volunteering and doing unpaid internships. Young, talented people (with college debt) are being devalued. It's got to stop.

This is actually far better than trying to be psychic on what's wanted. What's far worse is a client who doesn't know what they want, but knows what they don't want when you show it to them - namely your first several concepts.

I do tend to agree... sometimes, ideas are shot down Coz visions clash, sometimes for spite, sometimes in ignorance... when the oldies sit at the top, and hire youngsters to give good ideas but don't take those ideas, what's the point?

I had to do some materials for an airport conference not long after 9/11. A conference attended by those in the industry. Number one requirement on the brief was not to show any images of aircraft as it might be considered insensitive.

Often is worse, we see that with politics here, they feel like they are minister, so they NEED to do sth and change, and it often end in bad stuff but that way they can say "I have made that education reform!"

Ugh! I remember this one... "yes, you are starting low, but I look forward to raising you up to where you should be quickly." Which never happened... and then "Bonuses are now based on performance of all branches together, your office's results were fantastic, but xyz city really had a bad year, and even though you don't work together or share projects/clients, no bonus for all your hard work." And that was my incentive to leave!
