We never had the knock-down staff meeting I feared. HeroMan, our absentee Creative Director, also known as Captain Chaos, kept being unavailable. He's good enough at the game to make it a fair assumption he's waiting for the fire to die down.
This morning the traffic manager (Stressed-Out Eeyore) got an email from Captain Chaos informing her to expect a new hire today. None of us have ever met this guy nor did we have any idea he was coming.
Turns out he’s a creative director with a writing/acting/theater background. Not someone who can actually design from his own concepts. He will therefore be someone like Captain Chaos who will create a need for content creation without the means to aid in it.
The four of us who were in the office today took him out for a welcome lunch. He’s a great guy.
My overall thought is that Captain Chaos has hired his own replacement.
