Me: “It’s going to take approx. 150 hours.”
Them: “Can you do it half that?”
I’m only willing to pay $10/hour, I know all of the programs are free.
I was designing a brochure that would show transitions from old computer technology to new to show how far the company I was working for had come and how “cutting edge” it was(n’t). In one part of it I had used an illustration of an old computer that had a black screen with green type on it. My supervisor had never said a word about it the entire time and encouraged my design stating that it was brilliant. I was brought into a meeting to present it to his boss…
Me: “So here is the design [I proceed to explain it]”
Boss: [laughs a little] “How did you come up with this? No Computers have EVER had screens that were black with green text!”
Supervisor: “YEAH, what were you thinking?” [laughing hysterically]
I stared at both of them blankly and left the room after they were done mocking me.
Later on I approached my supervisor…
Me: “So, I didn’t want to embarass you both at the meeting but…” [I hand him a paper with a list of models of computers that had this “feature”]
Supervisor: [Turns red] “Yeah, I knew that I didn’t want to say anything.”
Can you include a splash intro animation that turns the screen into a mirror so they can see themselves? We really want to push the metaphor.
Once I get out on parole, we can really get this thing off the ground.
I need you to make the website black and white but include as much color as possible.
Will it be cheaper if we have the navigation on the right, rather than the left?
