And no one sings me lullabyes
And no one makes me close my eyes
So I throw the windows wide
And call to you across the sky.

PSA for the week


Dear fellow graphic designers,

If you respond to an ad like this one, make sure you negotiate for a share of the free beers the band gets at their gigs. More than likely, that's the only compensation you'll ever see (no matter what they promise).

Signed,
Someone currently doing two of these projects (and yes, I went into them knowing I won't get paid, they also know they get the lowest priority).

Hey, you never know--could be the launchpad into becoming the Hipgnosis of the 21st Century, right?

Sh'yeah. And monkeys could fly outa my butt.

Besides, in that case you're working for the label, not really for the band. I actually have a little experience in that field (Nashville, Gospel Music). It's a hard business.
