We've had two graphic designers work with the company despite my prior work I've showed them, mostly because they want me working on architecting the app and its features, and actually writing them. Both graphic designers returned such crap that I ended up doing it anyway. The problem? They didn't know Photoshop very well. One guy did a horrible job removing a background because he didn't know about the extractor. One guy didn't even know how to do a drop shadow (either the hard way or the easy way)!

I whole-heartily agree with schools not teaching students to research, and I also see another problem: lack of exploration! I may not be a graphic designer, but I know Photoshop well because I explored its features. I learned practically every application that way (sans MS Money: since that manages my $$$, I wanted to be sure! Smile | :) ). I may not know for what a pivot table is useful, but I sure know how to make them!

People around the office are the same way. It took me over a year to get them to check the docs first, mostly by coming off as a bit of an a$$. I spend a great deal of time writing good comments for our code and generating help and no one reads it and always asks questions instead.

Ugh. What an industry!
