SKETCH 002

Yesterday event were still playing in my head. Seems like the fun of it still glowing its warmth. But the moment I woke up today, I realised there was another bad news I have. And currently we don't come up with any solutions to it, yet. The school magazine we have been working so hard last year ( it was during my critical major exam period ) has been rejected. We promised to make the best of it out of all the editions we ever had, more fancier with the theme students notebook and many graphics in it. I thought I had make sure they didn't seem overloaded or messy in any way but at the same time I imagined the output as a moleskin where the notes are scribbled with doodles and all, are just nice. But for god sake it was rejected because everything in it was too fancy! It often occur to me how I have to redesign my design when it comes to working with older folks. Our taste is one thing we quite disagree with, yet its really hard to make they agree with my taste and to make they understand how its not that easy to change a designated stuff! Too often, at the end I have to listen to them and remake it. Of course we have to, its how the world should work right. Youngster should obey their folks, or at least try to. They demanded only times new roman and straight lines while we had chose our fancy fonts and curves. I'm not trying to be a rebel but I hope you understand how it is really such a time consumer! It gonna be a complete waste of time if I have to redo it.

So the lesson learnt here, let say you're working with A to surprise B, make sure not only A agree with you but show B your work as well! And get B's confirmation first! Don't give a care to surprise B anymore, you gonna be really really frustrated if B turn you down, especially if its a kinda big surprise. And in our case, it gonna be pretty much harder since A is moving out now so we really on our own. With no one on our side, from the language used to the students works, supposedly we have to start from scratch. But seriously, do we really have to?
