    I just created a AI food truck template for an ad agency. I told them that the template is 1/2 scale and they emailed me back asking if I could send new files that include the dimensions and key measurements. Are there really people that get paid to design that don't understand that on a 1/2 scale template, a 36" line is actually 72"?? I just don't get it.

    You wouldn't believe what some designers and agency pro's 'don't' know.

    Only last month I had the local council wanting a full scale proof of a 20' sign for planning regulations!!
    It took me almost 20 minutes to convince the council official they wanted a scale drawing!!!

    Keep requiring everyone to go to college to hold a position, and this is what you get.

    Nothing surprises me any more
