I’m a college student who is working towards getting my degree in graphic design. While at my part-time job, I was asked by a co-worker if I could design a couple of posters for her part time cleaning business. While discussing what she wanted her “mascot” to look like, we had a interesting conversation:
Me: Ok, so you said you wanted a woman in a maid costume, holding a duster in one hand, and a vacuum in the other?
Client: Yeah, but I don’t want it to look slutty or anything.
Me: Ok, got it. Anything else before I start sketching it?
Client: Well, I want it to look sexy, but family friendly.
Me: O-okay. Let me see what I can come up with.
She ended up picking a design with a maid in a short sexy dress vacuuming next to a group of toys. And as an added bonus, the phrase “I’ll Beat Your Sweeper” was featured on the eventual posters.
