Right o, Im back clipping out photos for a trade catalogue. Its pretty mind numbing, but at the mo I'm the junior designer, so Im getting all the cack jobs that no one else wants.
What was the crappiest job you got as a junior designer?
i made a catalogue for a gun shop
I had to look through 2,000 ring binders to check for mis-aligned artwork on the spine. pick out the good from the bad, it was at the printers and i had a nasty cold
i works as a graphic desiger in a shades company here, and it f****** suck, cause i have to obey 3 bosses, if each one doesnt like it, you have to redo it again, imagine three bosses at a time, how can you get to work on that!!!! kind of S***,.. lickinly for me im no longer there....
I used to create the motion graphics for the Brannigans Bastards!
Yeah, having loads of bosses sucks. The last place I worked was huge, it was a big e-learning company doing maths projetcs in Flash MX for the american market. The work was due for a september launch, in August the American client said, 'we don't like the minus sign. Its too big. could you change the minus sign so we can take a look at it and see if its better?' It would mean retro fitting all the completed work.
The projects didnt get deleivered on time, I left in December. During the summer the let their design department go, 45 designers, and kept on 3 seniors.
.......going through 15,000 fonts and having to create a top 50!!!
"maths projects for the american market"
hahah yeah as if!!
Dude, it was the worst thing ever. Big company got a contract from some American school book maunfacturer who wanted a CD Rom version of their books. An almost exact copy of their books done with Flash.
It was crappy and they kept changing their minds on what they wanted. Every bg or icon they were shown was in some way phallic and they loved being PC so we had to draw up bgs with kids in wheelchairs and such.
working on a farm one summer it was discovered that some of the animals had eaten 'wrong' food...
there was only one way to tell which ones...
so all the animals many shits had to be examined to see if it could be determined which ones had consumed the 'wrong' food...
wait a minute...
that may have been a dream...
Occasionally having to format Word (styles and formatting) and PowerPoint (Animations / Text) docs for the CEO and uppermanagement. Then convert them to PDF.
Fuggin Office XP.
I knew a nurse, who worked with the aged.
One of her roles was to 'digitally extract' poo from the rectums of poor folks who couldnt get it out themselves.
I like to remind myself of that whenever I get cocky and arrogant and feel like chucking a job in.
ahh, it's gotta be, to give it it's technical term-"Tightening Up'.
and anybody that's worked in huge, huge non-automated warehouse will know about.
it was a matter of un-stacking boxes and then restacking them again to see if you gain centimetres of space which could be A: arguably room for more boxes
or B: easier acces to the fire escape. yeah, tightening-up....a grand occupation...i now own that warehouse!! well, one like it anyway.
is it a 'warehome' now that you own it..?
I had to put a clipping paths around 60+ images of sanitary ware for project we were doing for Ideal Standard and that was only last week!!
Worst job though in my school days was ironically, cleaning loads of f*cking Ideal Standard sanitary ware.
Harsh. Why wasn't that in an Alanis Morriset song?
Ha hah I sent it too her and everything, apparently the spoon and knife thing worked better.
I am currently cutting out lots of pics of people for a catalogue... I'm doing some with clipping paths and some with channels to break up the monotony, though some need to be in paths.. I've been doing this since monday morning and am maybe half way through.
carver; is that warehouse where you store all your money or is it for your collection of lego birds and pelting paraphenalia??
a f***ing bed and breakfast i'm working right now...http://www.67nj.org/locand... i wish that bitch was a NT member...:))
