The unsung: down & dirty production work
I rarely ever see or hear a word about everyday, nasty ol' production work; the type that folks have to whip out of thin air with no decent assets and fewer choices; the "just do it" newspaper ad or other low-budget, low distribution, need-it-yesterday kind of work.
I've allowed myself to get somewhat pigeon-holed into production work; but it's work, and there exists both good and bad in production work. Still, no one discusses it; like a dirty little secret we are ashamed of. I'm not above production work, though I long for opportunities to be more creative and have more control.
But my question is, are we, as a community, design snobs?
