Hey, its very cool creative work. How did you thought out this? Especially i mean those diffirent graphic elements (such as BlackHawk or group of people). or this was impovisation during the work process?
It's like that just to be more readable. But it's not the first time that I receive this comment about the fusion style of the foreground/background, so I will fix it soon, I have decided. Thanks 4 the critique mate.
Ehehe, not afraid, fuckin hella experienced. Professional rejection is my best friend.
I can tell bedtime stories in front of the fire with children on my knees and a glass of cognac in my hand about absurde work meeting to find jobs, or other "folies de travaux" (mad stories about the work's world) as freelance, FOR HOURS.
One of the weirdest:
A(chief/pseudo art-director): Hi, bla bla bla...show me your works. B (me): Sure, bla bla bla... this is it. A: Ah, sorry we are looking for someone more low profile. You have just to put text in our template layout and nothing more. You're too advanced. B: Ah. Maybe something else? A: You're able to do a catalogue? B: Sure. A: Do this. Deadline boh. It's a prototype. If you're good we can think to start a relationship for freelancing. B: (thinking...ok i'm unemployed, let's do something, better than nothing)
(I hang out too much into other things, three weeks passed, give them not one catalogue but three versions of different editorial layouts with fake 3d presentation) A (they dead, never more answered)
One of the saddest:
A(assistant of the chief of a music label): (01.00 a.m. in the middle of the night) Is it ok if I come to your house in the next 30 minutes to take the graphics of the cd? B (me, angry, fucking my gilrfriend) : ARE YOU KIDDIN ME?
(another time, same assistant)
A: I send you my sister to take the graphics, I'm busy (and I know how he was busy, at the fuckin happy hour) (p.s. the sister was never come)
That first one sound like an asshole. He called you for an interview just to say you are too high profile for job and you did samples just to be ignored. Waste of time. Second one sound like desperate recruitment agency.
I had similar experience recently. I'm currently looking for job as Art Director/Senior Designer and I actually grown facial hair because last 3 interviewers told me I was too young, considering they don't know how old I am.
Conversation was like this:
Interviewer: Hello me: Nice to meet you.
(after about an hour of conversation)
Interviewer: I think you are too young for this job. me: How old do I has to be? Interviewer: Least 30. me: I'm 32. Interviewer: Oh................ We will call you.
