I often get confused looks when I try to answer the usual friendly inquiry "So, what do you do?"....
My answer is "I'm a graphic designer."
"Oh, so what kind of projects do you do?"
"All kinds. Lately, I was involved in creating a big poster series for UCLA Special Collections."
"Oh, so you did the photography?"
"No, I found images within the vast array of images that are part of UCLA's Special Collections."
"Oh, so you wrote all the copy?"
"No, actually a Marketing Consultant wrote the copy."
By now, they've usually lost interest and we move on to other subjects.
So this be will the place where I can give my whole song and dance about what I actually do. This will also be a place where I can post about stuff I find interesting that's going on in my life....
