There’s a chance you saw a very poorly designed ad for a graphic designer job by the City of Los Angeles, making the rounds on social media this weekend. But, what you might not know is that it was totally on purpose, in all its Comic Sans and Microsoft Paint glory.

The original ad was posted to the City of LA jobs Twitter page, and thanks to its child-like aesthetics, un-even letters and multicolored squares, it was actually successful and garnered quite a response. The tweet received hundreds of replies with images of other regrettable designs as “resumes.”
