clients who change their minds at a moments notice

it is funny as i have seen clients come and go, the clients who stay trust the creative.  the ones who leave don't.  they are constantly changing their mind.  and then they don't understand once they have approved a piece of work, it goes through the rigorous mechanical stage of work, where everything is made perfect, which costs money.  then after all is said and done, it is sent to the printer and they have worked it up in their software.  at this point the client has an Epiphany and says we need to scrap it all.  but they don't want to pay for it all, not having realized all of the hours that go into finalizing an idea.  well it is too late now, and kind of funny to us.  good luck with trying to get free work for 40+ hours.  getting back to really good clients, we have a meeting with mor beverage this week.

finalizing the website

we have been working diligently on our website to get it up so we can get rid of that splash page. we are about done, just need to implement our files. this afternoon having a new client meeting, it really is crazy how doing a good job for someone means them spreading word of mouth about our business. 2 new clients, thanks jeff.

it was a fun night on thursday. thanks a lot to mitch peterson for taking the images. next time we are thinking the wynn hotel for our destination.

musician vs. instrument

as i was driving into work today, Beyonce's song 'Halo'. the song itself is really good, Beyonce has a brilliant voice. then i got to thinking, Beyonce and people like her are not musicians, for they do not write, they are purely an instrument. the have a voice coach who tells them how to sing, a producer who making the backing band, and a write to give them lyrics. the only thing they have is a voice, which is still an amazing gift, but everything else is spelled out and bound. they, being wealthy contracted vocalists/bands, only have to do what is on the paper. after thinking about all this i appreciated starting bands, and bands that write all their own material. bands like white stripes, and anything Jack White does for that matter, Metallica, Radiohead, and a bunch of the big bands that could higher all the needed help. granted there is always a producer here, but a lot of musicians are becoming musician/producer. and the ones that aren't are bringing in people like Rick Rubin to guide the helm. i would be really interested to have a line up of the top bands/singers of 08/09 and see of the albums released who wrote their own material, both music and vocals. i bet everyone would be surprised who would step up to be real musicians.

on a side note, i really wish U2 would stop making music/performing. i saw them on SNL and it was a joke, bono kneeling giving parents advice on raising their children. i wonder if they write all of their own material?

new clientele

we are in the process of closing a new QSR client. should be good, went to try the food, was very happy. needs a lot of work though. the brand work that is.


i was reading a book this week that was talking about the word 'sincerely', it was extremely interesting. so sincere, comes from Latin 'sine' 'cera' which means without wax. apparently when sculptors of the Renaissance would make a mistake in a sculpture, they would hide the mistake with a combination of wax and stone dust. when a sculpture was sincere it was without wax, it was 'true' so to speak. so when we sign our letter sincerely we mean truthfully. i thought that was interesting. know any other history of the spoken word?

great tag lines that you sing

i was singing in the shower, like i do most days, and the tune that came to mind was one from my childhood. it went as follows, "the best part of waking up, is foldgers in your cup." what a great line/song. what are some of your favorite tag lines/songs combos.
