Wrench-throwin’ Season

Every year I believe that my yearly brochure will come together easily and quickly.

I believe I will have illustrations at my fingertips, sparkling show copy will virtually write itself, I will know what logos need to be included and the names of everyone who needs to be credited.

I am an idiot.

Because the way of the brochure is never straight.

Oh no. It is a minefield full of disputes discussions over ‘hilarious’ vs ‘laugh-out-loud,’ EM-dashes vs EN-Dashes, and white space vs. Johnson boxes. Just for some purely hypothetical examples that I just made up.

It’s no one’s fault really. Except mine. For believing that this year will be different.

Because I should know by now, there will always a wrench thrown into the works. Often a multitude of wrenches. It’s just a matter of time.

But I’m up for the challenge, now that I’ve changed my philosophical mind-set. I’m changing my job title temporarily to Brochure Wrangler

Bring it on brochure. Bring it on.

That poor little brochure. There’s a lot of $$$ resting on its single-fold spine. I hope it can take the pressure.

  1. Hey, why don’ t you let us blog friends help? We’re all awesome.

    I never go to a show with a brochure bearing the words, “Laugh out loud.” I have principles. Go with “Hilarious”. Seriously.

    As for the EM vs En dashes. I have no idea what you’re talking about. I.A.M.??? Where are you?

    White space vs boxes? I vote for white space. You should set up a poll.

    What else can we help with? Have you tried tap dancing while dodging the wrenches? That would look cool.
