I write, draw, film, and a lot of other things. Professionally I will always be a designer. I cannot look at anything without critiquing it. I cannot help but be green (#64BC46, to be exact) with envy when I see a beautifully clean ad or a cleverly designed business card or a cool looking logo. Somehow, through the six years of graphic experience, I have been completely entranced by the trade.
My previous post “You know you’re a Graphic Designer when…”, my most popular post in fact, really does show my true nature. I am guilty of all of that and more. I don’t mind the tediousness of leading and kerning. I don’t mind staring at the blank pages for hours on end. I don’t even mind dealing with crazy clients. In the end, if what I produce is good, or at least meet my base expectation, I am happy.
When I was little, I didn’t want to art to be my career path, but somehow through the winding roads of life, here I am; my pencil is what put food on my table.
It’s not that bad. I don’t think. Life is funny like that but things could be worse. With the economy the way it is, I really hope that it won’t be worse. I’m hoping that things will pick up and I can find work as easily as I once did. Oh well, for now, I will make these design for these “clients”.
(For the record, Tekpwn.com is a real company and I am their designer.) If you need good Tech Support, do call. We can provide tech support to and from anywhere in the world. No we do not have an outsource company in India. It’s all here in the good ol’ US of A.
