DT Red Nose Day

A break in the chaos

Work's been a mess lately. The client company spent a year arguing with itself over what it wanted, then said, "Okay, this is what we want" - without a design, mind you - "and you have two months to make it." So we've spent the last seven weeks trying to beat a design out of them and implementing things as facts dribble in. Deadline is next week and they're still making changes. We've been working 10-12 hour days the past week, and I'll be heading in to work in an hour for another one.

I'd like to say it's the nature of the industry, to have crunch times like this, but honestly, if our own company had better processes and could set expectations for the clients better, it wouldn't be this bad. But that's not something that's going to happen - we've had this argument before and it's fallen on deaf ears.

Meanwhile, it doesn't mean I can't take the free 15 minutes I have during the day to do something fun.
