Far over the misty mountains cold
To dungeons deep and caverns old
We must away ere break of day
To seek the pale enchanted gold

The dwarves of yore made mighty spells
While hammers fell like ringing bells
In places deep, where dark things sleep,
In hollow halls beneath the fells.

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.
