Midterm narcissism

If blogging is the zenith in narcissistic behavior then I feel I may have just breached the final frontier of self-serving indulgence...

That's right, I turned a midterm class assignment into an experiment of how much Me can everyone take.

I already talk too much in class. I am THAT alternative student who answers all the hypothetical questions posed by the teacher and will interject with my own internal monologue when nobody asked.

Take that night class!

For this assignment we were asked to create a logo, letterhead, business card, etc for either an existing or fake business.

I chose to gussy up this Dumpster a bit and use it as my "fake" business for the assignment. Saying I gussied up the Wednesday Weekly, is like saying I cleaned the bathrooms with a power-washer and a gallon of chlorine (which I have seen my roommate do once before... the place smelled like a Holiday Inn for three weeks).

The logo treatment is nothing too terribly new... You all have see it before. logos

Oh, that's right... the fake part about this assignment was that I turned my blog into an Advertising Firm. Why not?

I am a little more excited about the letterhead, though... Letterhead

BAM! Hand-Drawn Skyline! Take that hand-written letters! business card

Heck yeah, At WW we don't skimp on business cards... that shit is double-sided and probably glossy... maybe even implanted with a GPS tracking chip because I am a paranoid nut job. envelope

Business Envelope! This is kind of hilarious because who sends mail any more?

And so that was midterms... up next, designing a business brochure for an HR company that specializes in ZZZZzzzzzzzzz.....

david's going to comment about how he doesn't like orange logos but how everyone uses them (the former mayor,, that other online kc publication whose name i can't recall to google/check on : )

i think orange is fine
rhymes with sunshine,
which is good for oranges.

I was more channeling my old college sober-driver program where we used Safety Orange:

I despise orange used in any fashion other than pumpkins.

I think the business card should be a die-cut of your head. I would hang that in my cube for sure, talk about advertising. Maybe you could even pop out the eyes and it could become a mask...just sayin'
