Some goofy excuses we as designers make ⏰

Deadlines can be weird.
On the one hand, they’re totally motivational; they encourage you to get the job done by a specific date, thus ensuring achievement. But on the other, they can overwhelm you when they all come flying willy-nilly.
Sometimes you just need to take some extra time to compose yourself. And we all know it’s important to account for mistakes in a project.
In either of these cases, you’ll need an excuse ready to go, even if it’s a little bit of a fib.
In fact, it’s a good post to like and bookmark, because who knows when you’ll need it.
Enjoy reading this post. This post has been inspired from a post of Jon Moore
This isn’t the final design (lol, yes it is)
This is how everyone (Amazon) does it. We should do it this way
I’m almost done, but don’t want to spoil it (l haven’t started yet).
lt’s taking longer than i thought (again…l haven’t started yet)
We can always iterate on this (we probably won’t)
No, of course this isn’t final. Once you guys (decide on something that will never be decided upon, create content that you will never create, or loop in a colleague for feedback that will never be looped in for feedback) we can definitely come back to this and try out some other options.
I wanted to try something different, to really stand out. You know…super punchy.
I just sent it over (lie). Did it not go through? (I needed some more time to finish it)
