Missing Missy.

Why you should never ask
favors from a graphic designer:

Meine gute Freundin Katja hat mir den Inhalt dieses Posts als schlecht formatiertes PDF zugeschickt. Ich hatte daran sehr viel Spaß und nun seid ihr an der Reihe. Ich habe mir auch die Mühe gemacht, der Übersicht halber eine halbwegs ordentliche Formatierung herzustellen.

Story goes :  Shannon (the secretary) has lost her cat and has asked David (the graphic designer) to help with a lost poster. This is their email correspondence…

Hi  I opened the screen door yesterday and my cat got out and has been missing since then so I was wondering if you are not to busy you could make a poster for me. It has to be A4 and I will photocopy it and put it around my neighborhood this afternoon.

This is the only photo of her I have she answers to the name Missy and is black and white and about 8 months old. missing on Harper street and my phone number.
Thanks Shan.

Dear Shannon, That is shocking news.  Although I have two clients expecting completed work this afternoon, I will, of course, drop everything and do whatever it takes to facilitate the speedy return of Missy.
Regards, David.

Dear Shannon,  I never said I don’t like cats. Attached poster as requested.
Regards, David.

Wer uns Designer kennt weiß das jeder Einwand ab nun Sinnlos ist. Auch wenn er inhaltich korrekt ist, wird er Schritt für Schritt die Gestaltung ruinieren, dass wird David nicht auf sich sitzen lassen
und alles geben um das Layout noch zu retten.
Und wer war eigentlich Missy? 🙂
