Aus aktuellem Anlass:
Serious Studio hat vor ein paar Tagen auf Instagram eine „Creative Horror Stories“ Serie im Stil von klassischen Horror Filmtiteln veröffentlicht, die wohl jedem in der Kreativbranche bekannt vorkommen sollte. Darunter natürlich auch absolute Klassiker wie „I need this by end of day“, „We don´t have a budget for this“ oder mein absoluter Favorit „Working on the Weekends“.
Auch abseits der Instagram Webworker Albtraum-Serie hat das Studio übrigens ganz coole Arbeiten im Portfolio – also ruhig auch mal auf der Website vorbei schauen.
Spooky story #1: „It’s 4pm and I’m about to wrap things up and call it a day when all of a sudden, a client calls, demanding a turnover for a new concept by the end of the day. Sometimes, at night, I can still hear the shrill echo of a voice taunting me to make that deadline…“ – Anonymous Advertising Creative #halloween #creativehorrorstories #horrorstories #design #type #typography #lettering #art #hashtags #wow Ein von Serious Studio (@seriousstudio) gepostetes Foto am
Spooky story #2: „A few days ago, my client wanted me to just copy his competitor’s logo to save time and back-and-forths. He was persistent that I should just copy it because ‘it just works’. I wanted to tell him that if he’s just going to literally copy a restaurant, he should just forget about starting one. I didn’t tell him because I’m just sitting here eating my popcorn, waiting for this trainwreck that is just about to happen.“ – Anonymous Graphic Designer #halloween #creativehorrorstories #horrorstories #design #type #typography #lettering #art #hashtags #wow #typespire #graphicdesign #artph
Here’s the last one for today. Spooky story #3: „My small agency just finished a project that went on for months. By the time we started to talk about billing, my client told me to talk to their accounting department. The sad part is they really don’t have an accounting department— I was actually talking to their intern, who was a really bad liar. He ended up just saying that his boss suddenly can’t pay our agency. “ – Anonymous Finance Guy #halloween #design #type #creativehorrorstories #artph #art Ein von Serious Studio (@seriousstudio) gepostetes Foto am
Spooky story #4: „My client told me that I shouldn’t get paid for this because they’re just a startup. The best they can do is pay me in exposure, and get me when they’re way bigger. After all, he said, it’s called freelancing for a reason. Also, who lives on exposure anyway?“ – Anonymous Freelancer #design #graphicdesign #typespire #type #lettering #art #artph #creativehorrorstories #halloween
Spooky story #5: „I’m at my daughter’s ballet recital, and out of nowhere my boss asks me to fix some site bugs that could easily be done on Monday. Here’s to the weekend!“ – Anonymous Web Developer #halloween #creativehorrorstories #art #design #type Ein von Serious Studio (@seriousstudio) gepostetes Foto am
Here’s the last one. The lesson in this one is to never pitch for free. Spooky story #6: „I pitched a brand campaign to this company last July and they loved it. A week later, they told me that they didn’t have a budget for it, so they went ahead and executed it with someone who could do it for cheap.“ – Anonymous Advertising Creative #2
