A friend of the house calls. “… I would love your help with something. I need my logo sent to a company tonight, is this possible?”.
It’s 10:00. There’s school tomorrow…
“Yeah, of course! Do you know how Skype works?”. A ten minute intro to Skype, and were ready to discuss the logo. “What are your ideas? … The more clear you are about what you want the faster I can work”. Teaching about sending files. I discuss fonts while I download the images she likes which takes a few minutes. “What kind of fonts do you like?”. …”OK, I’ll call you back after I’ve made an example image of the fonts i think you’ll like.”
“Hi again, did you receive the file? …Ah the last one? And what about the images? …Ok, sounds good, I’ll call back once I’ve got a draft”.
I show her a few ideas, she’s really excited and I’m quick surprised by my effeciency. I make a few changes.
“Ok, what about this…?”
I love it when I surprise myself. When I accomplish something new. In this case the outcome is simple. Although after having crammed discussions, Skype lessons and personality / brand analyzation into one hour, I do feel good.
…and Hey! I get a massage/ spa treatment + another addition to my portfolio!
