Hovering art directors

Waleikcaj‘s Tumblr blog has been retweeted a few times (we have Reed Words and Angus Montgomery to thank for bringing it to our attention) but we admired the keen social observation at work here.

Not that we can relate to it, of course (CR’s Mr. Paul Pensom steers a tight ship from his chair and no messing about). In fact, this might be a good opportunity to start a sister blog: ‘Nitpicking Design Suggestions from Editorial’?

    I had a Marketing Manager who gave every brief as a ppt presentation with his Ideas of how it should look. Naturally I ignored everything and did the opposite. He couldn’t see it was crap!

    This makes me shudder – all my memories of working in agencies involved hovering ball bags. Really uncomfortable feeling.

    lol yes I remember it well from my agency days. “I love what you’ve done, save it don’t throw it away, but can you change this this and this, and make the logo bigger”.

    Make the logo bigger indeed.

    Hovering douchebags. “oh wait, don’t take the picture yet, let me get my scarf, ah yeah, that’s better. Ok, now.”

    This has made me laugh – I ended up marrying the Creative Director who stood and pointed over my shoulder!
