I knew I wasn’t going to enjoy having our end of the month deadline pushed up to the 23rd, but I thought I was more ready than this. This sucks.

As a contingency plan, I have now created generic franchise graphics for our customers at the office level — we’re already doing this for the agent level, due to lack of time. Site gets built, default graphics go up, I dump in standard content, THEN if there is TIME I go to current site and pull custom content, then customize office graphics. If there isn’t time before the plug gets pulled on the old sites…. well, then the phone calls begin.

Still reading? Why… it’s dull to do, has to be more dull to read about.

Meanwhile… I’m going to quit and go to bed now.

    why does web/graphic design work have to be difficult? why don’t people that aren’t us just get it? just because their job doens’t involve them actually doing anything they think that ours is the same.

    do they think that graphics or design grows on trees?

    AND…why is it that people send over “small” requests to get something done or have an image resized, but its really not a “small” request at all. don’t they know that anything they send me has to be done, i can’t just let it sit there while i work on something else (or post on LJ).

    i want a job where i can make phone calls and request things of people all day. and say things like “hey, i got this quick project i’d like for you to work on. can i have it by tomorrow morning?” and then as you begin to turn your computer BACK on cause you had just shut everything down for the day they are like “well the client didn’t really give me a lot of specs so could you make a few different designs we can show them?”

    man i hate people…hmmm..who does that sound like?

    My girlfriend and I are both graphic artist. We got home last night and looked at each other and said “we chose the wrong career”. I don’t REALLY mean that but sort of I do. Marketing people are scum of the fucking earth and we’re forced to work with them. They’re parasites who throw out orders and treat us creative types as their bitches.

    Plus the money isn’t that great and you hit a glass ceiling about ten seconds after starting the job.

    But other than that it’s great.
