In addition to developing the look and feel for a big show, I've been put onto a second show that piggy-backs off the first. Long story, but there were lots of politics involved and lots of potential weirdness. In essence, the client likes me and didn't like what they experienced of one of our other designers last year. However, we need to use our in-house talent and I don't have time to lead two concurrent shows. Given the concerns with her, they put me on as the 'face' of the design department, but in the end, the idea will be that I start it off and gradually step back.
I was nervous about the dynamic between the two of us, but she's been very professional and I like to make room for other people's ideas, so it's working out well. Phew! Obviously, that drama has been consuming my hours at work. At home, I've often been just collapsing and reading a book rather than doing anything on-line. Long hours staring at a computer means I just don't want to do that in my free time. Today is finally a little slower, so I can breathe and check into what's happening in the blogosphere.
One of my co-workers just found this video of amazing soccer stunts.
And here's a chat with the person who designed the Google logo.
