job well done…

in our industry there are two camps… creative and production. production prepares graphics for press that have been designed by someone in a creative capacity. having done both i can say that although they both have their pros / cons i prefer the creative department… let me explain…

production graphics or pre-press is mechanical… assess it, fix it, set it up, print it… it’s a “no news is good news” occupation… like dusting… if you do a really nice job no one notices… screw it up and all eyes are on you…. now creative is a different animal… creative is where the glory is… come up with something from nothing, breath life into it, make a connection with a client on a personal level and they’ll rave about you for weeks…

I had one of those good connections with a client… cam mccarroll from harbour front properties in hamilton… i did a logo and we’ve just finished his website http://www.harbourproperties.ca/ … this is what he had to say about me on his facebook tonight…

“Each and every time I connect with this person I receive a gift of some form. A true artist in business. Thank you Lucas Duguid of Octopus Red.”

cheers cam, very much appreciated.
