So it’s been my first 7 days at my new job as graphic designer at Minuteman Press New England. It’s been fantastic! The work is cool, my boss is great and my co-workers aren’t too bad either ;-). I kinda enjoy the fact that some of the work I do isn’t always considered design. For example, sometimes its’ editing copy on excel or recreation of previous artwork for a new customer. I’ve also been able to use my psychic abilities too which always makes for a good time. I had made a comment the other day about my monitor not being as big as what I’m used to and my boss asked what size I was used to and I said about the mac that was sitting on the desk to the left. He was like, ‘you know you aren’t getting a mac’. I was like aw shucks, lol. But he bought me a new monitor the same size during lunch and its’ supposed to be of similar size – so we’ll see. I had a really rewarding experience so far where I had a design project to create a new design for a business card for a local frame shop. They wanted ornate scrolling full bleed and a golden frame in the center around the logo. I just went with what I was seeing in my head and she ended up really liking it as it matched her ‘vision’. She just didn’t like the typeface I used, which was OK with me because I had mixed feelings with the typeface anyway. Another design project I did lately was a letterhead for a local Grammar School which I included in this post. It’s still a bit surreal to me that I’m finally working in my field – a position I’ve coveted for so long.
