A Care Homes charity organization's area Manager friend asked me to create a Wall Poster depicting their 'promotional and training models' for display in team meetings etc. He wanted a style not too cartoony that can transfer easily as separate diagrams. He showed examples of the kind of chart graphics needed together with the info needing artwork. I then penciled roughs and scanned them into Photoshop to make a template for use in Illustrator where I worked up the individual pieces then basically it was a simple matter of 'flower arranging' my info-graphic presentation -
I hoped my interpretation was instantly digestible, however his response was ..My marketing manager's now is seeing it differently to me and has the insight needed, I am more artistic rather than practical.. He lead me to believe he was supreme commander! Anyway, needless to say I was suckered by an ol'friend and we both learned our lesson.
