The last two weeks, I've worked 58 and now 61 hours respectively. Let's review the part where the client said they were taking the look and feel internal and were going to provide me production ready art... In their definition, that just means that they don't have to review it for more rounds of approval.
I just bought two programs (Genuine Fractals--for blowing images up from 22 inches to 11 feet--and a trial version of Fluid Mask--for cutting people out of backgrounds). They're going with a look and feel that seems to involve psychotic looking models grinning at various computer devices. I've cleaned up pimples from a guy's stubble, trimmed around hair, erased nose hair, all for 'production ready art'.
We went from clean, elegant, rounded to huge plus signs everywhere. Taken out of context, they look like crosses. Or red cross symbols. Or an HP ad. The information booth looks like a huge first-aid counter. The overall feeling I have is that I've still-birthed a child and am now being commanded to raise someone else's mutant.
Today my client raved about how she thought things would look great on site, very fresh. She asked what I think, "It will look new!" I responded in a chipper, lying through my teeth way.
