The city of Los Angeles needs a graphics designer — badly

City of Los Angeles

The city of Los Angeles needs a new graphics designer — and from the look of the online job posting, it needs one pretty badly.

A cheeky tweet from the city’s account used the much-maligned Comic Sans font and amateur MS Paint-style illustrations to draw in potential candidates.

The basic colors and shapes, as well as the poorly pasted-in city logo, helped the post rocket across social media Thursday. For job-seekers serious about the position, the city’s website contains a proper listing.
