I was designing a postcard invitation for my company’s open house party to celebrate our new offices. Since the company did architecture and engineering, I based the design on a floor plan of our building, showing where we had moved to.
This email was the result of the boss’s wife “helping” me.
Re: Version 5 – This is not what I want.
Please do the following… and nothing else.
1) Remove black hyphenated line and the thick, black arrow.
2) Remove the words “Come and see us!” and adjust the “We moved!” downward to fit the resulting enlarged space.
3) Remove the numbers “170’ – 3 ¼” [measurements from the original floor plan] so you can center "[xx] Avenue" between the left margin of the postcard’s red border and the left edge of the large red arrow pointing upwards.
4) Add the words “our new entrance” in the same size and font as the street names dropped down one line space lower than the line containing “[xx] Avenue”. To the left of “our new entrance” which is to be in ALL LOWER case with no parentheses or quotation marks… just the three words…
Please put a small, thin, simple, curved arrow (NOT a thick, fat arrow) leaving one space between the arrow and the “o” of “our”. The small, thin, simple arrow’s shaft should start in the middle vertically of the line containing “our new entrance” not unlike a slightly elongated hyphen might look to the left of the word “our”… then with a rounded corner, it should proceed upward just one more line space where it will end, pointing directly to our new entrance and indicating our new entrance door opening. The location of our actual new entrance on the sketch will determine where the small, thin, left-and-upwardly-curving arrow is to be located…and, hence, after the aforementioned single, skipped space… where the words “our new entrance” will be located.
I have scanned and attached a copy of what I want.
[Name], I am not asking for an opinion. I am not asking for suggestions. I am not asking for comments or your idea for an alternate to what I have asked you to do.
Thank you for simply doing what I ask this time and emailing me a copy when it is done.[Boss’s wife]
