My brain hurts. You ever have one of those days?
We’re making some cosmetic changes with our look at work. It didn’t seem like it would be so hard in the abstract.
My part, as it turns out, entails hundreds… maybe thousands of individual changes. And they’re all being done on computers that produce nice graphics, but handle like a 62′ Plymouth Wagon with bad shocks.
No one, certainly not me, realized the depth of this part of the undertaking.
Every time you change a font, something else has to be changed. Drop shadow or bordering which looks fine with one typeface looks awful with another. And, there’s no hard and fast rule in what works. I don’t know exactly how anything will look until I actually see it.
The good news is, when this is all over, everything will look great. The bad news is, at the moment, I’m overwhelmed. Or, maybe I’m just normally spoiled and this introduction to real work is what’s got me down.
In any event, I like how the changes I’ve done so far look. That’s a good sign.
