Online economy group economy.org required a festive-themed illustration to front a new feature on ‘Stuff’. The feature contains several articles on spending, buying and our ongoing relationship, living with and re-using the stuff that we surround ourselves with. The brief was to incorporate elements from the articles with the aftermath of Christmas morning and the consequences of holding on to all that stuff.
The telephone call (prompted by a visit to the HAI website, of course) came on Dec 6. The deadline was Friday Dec 15. With a whole heap of other things going on, I figured I could slot the project in amongst my other spinning plates, so I accepted. After a quick layout was sent to the client, I pressed on and delivered the final art three days ahead of schedule. Go me!
