Sung to the tune of “Auld Lang Syne”
Well, Ze got cool and Yves more hot,
Bierut was on our mind.
How could old Gehry be forgot,
UnBeige loves all design!
Pasadena to Aspen, far and near,
Austin was the best time,
Through the Midwest, HOW and Y we jet,
We travel for design!
In soccer, hockey and basketball,
“Ugly” vs. “Pretty” online,
Even by Prince Charles and Scarlett,
You can’t escape design!
And spec’s bad for design, as feared,
Or not, or maybe it’s fine,
Except for these guys, you all should get
Paid more when you design!
Does gender matter? Are women stars?
Did Laura Bush miss the NDA 5?
We loved when Nussbaum threw a fit,
Who says it’s quiet in design?
Vanity Fair got design this year,
Newsweek and Food+Wine,
We’ll take the press but don’t forget
To credit who did design.
Brad Pitt became our poster child,
Adnan Hajj‘s clones got denied,
Sexy Heller‘s millionth book was writ,
What a year for old design!
So thanks for tips and linkage, dears,
You helped us make this rhyme,
We’ll see you in the new year with
More ways to waste your time!
