Sorry I have to vent - You take the time to design the overall aesthetic of a product and after much back and forth the customer finally says the all important words - "SOLD".
Elation soon turns to dread because then the production people get a hold of it and say "Well... we really don't want to make that like that, we're going to do THIS instead"
Grrrrrrrrr. I have enough years in the business to understand this chicken or the egg argument and having worked both sides of the coin I get it, I really do. Do we design for production or should production produce the design? It's so frustrating. It's not like I am asking to invent a new printing process or anything. The capability exists. Just because it's not as EASY as every other job that get's sent to the floor does not mean it should not be done.
This is one of the hazards of working for a company that does both design and production. Thank you for letting me vent.
