IN THE THICK OF THINGS
I have another cafe meeting tomorrow morning to present the apparel ranges. I must admit that dispite the MASSIVE amount of work involved I am loving it! I have spent WAY too long on this project, but I can't help it! I am just not satisfied with "that will do!" I could have stopped yesterday, having done enough to fill the brief, but I could not help but push it a little further and am just thrilled with how it's come together.
I can not wait to show my client, (which is always a really good sign) and not a feeling that you get from every assignment. I know that there will be many hours of this project that I will not be able to charge for (a topic for another discussion at some point!) but sometimes I feel that it's worth the extra effort and investment to get such a great result, and if the customer is as happy as I am and it results in strong sales, then of course this increases my chances of more work, and contributes to my professional reputation.
I am of course, also jumping the gun here, as there is never any guarantee that my client will love it as much as I do - especially when it's a new client that I am still building a relationship with, but will know more tomorrow!
I still have quite a bit to do though, as I am really trying to get strong balance in the product mix at the moment, and am trying to make sure that the graphics mix is different enough between the stories, but that they are also age appropriate.
