Ramblings About What I Think Is Important

Friday, September 03, 2004

Ahhhhhh… Now I remember why I want to leave.
So Best Buy (our client) liked MY ideas and the direction they were going. I finnish my 2nd round comps to be sent out and approved, but NOW my bosses (owners and Creative director) get the great idea to make the cover a collage of the artists featured. A Collage?!? my teacher once said that the use of a college is used only when there’s no concept (Bob Cooney). Plus, they gave it to another designer, so not only will it not have the look I gave it – the look our client liked – it will have the lack of a concept! It just bad business to hear a clients opinions but not listen. Why, why would you go a different direction from what the client is expecting on a whim. I have to leave because my voice of reason is falling on deaf ears. I could run this place better, but I don’t have the experience to back it up. So I’m leaving to gain more responsibility and creative control, but got to stick it out here for another week. blah.
