If I Wasn't a Designer

Sometimes as a designer I think what life would be like without Photoshop and HTML. My quick top five.

In the spirit of High Fidelity, my top five jobs that I would want outside the design realm:

  1. Writer (fiction)
  2. Park ranger
  3. Record store owner
  4. Guy who does something so obvious but that no one’s ever done before and makes zillions of dollars in like six months (I’m looking at you, Girls Gone Wild)
  5. Writer (non-fiction)
