To use words but rarely is natural.

Hence a gusty wind can not last all morning, and a sudden downpour can not last all day.  Who is it that produces these?
Heaven and earth.  If heaven and earth cannot go on forever,
much less can man.  That is why one follows the way.

XXIII; Tao De Ching

If you were to guess, what type of business do you think this logo is for.  The logo is for my “Project Management” class, which pairs students of all the design medias into groups and gives them the “real world” task of creating a whole brand marketing kit for a real client.  This is, how-you-say….WHACK, for two reasons.

1. This is a real life client that is getting around $5000+ of design work done for free, at the expense of students who can put it in their portfolio.  Now I might be a bit jaded because I do this for a living, but that shit is a bit ridiculous.

2. Being a “jaded” graphic designer, I find it difficult working with students.  I don’t want to be a dick and try to do everything my way, but it seems that it has to be that way to produce a good product.  They have come up with some good concepts, but the execution of them has been hard to swallow.  Whatever, I’m an ass-hole, and they’re still learning.

It’s raining.  It’s been raining for the last three days – and it isn’t supposed to stop for a couple more.  Which sucks because I’m broke as shit and haven’t done much of anything all weekend, except sit inside on my ass.  Which should have lent time for me to work on my literature paper that was due last Thursday, but alas, here I sit telling all of you about it once again instead of actually doing it.

I do have a bit of a start on it.  I have to explain how it is possible for literature of the past to influence identity in the present by comparing and contrasting the Old Testiment to the Tao Te Ching.  At least that’s the plan as of right now.  Every religion at it’s core is pretty much the same; Love God, Be Good, Live Forever, so I’m sure there’s a five page paper there somewhere.

  1. don't call me MA'AM

    I’m not sure why, but that logo makes me think of energy companies. Maybe because of all the oil/gas nightmare new stories that I can’t seem to escape…

    As for the Project Management class… are they asking you to create project plans, or are they using the term “project management” lightly?

    loose would be the term that applies to that class. As in – I’d imagine that the entire class has a pretty loose grip on what it is we should be learning.

    As far as an energy company, your way off.
