Highgate

A day in the Life

no. i mean douchebags.

At least once a week i get to spent my entire day scrolling through endless pages of toothy handshaking suits, trying desperately to find that perfect combination of elements that says "Yes, we'll make you rich beyond your wildest dreams sure... you can trust us, and at least 20% of our workforce is asian and/or of african american decent. Hispanics? nah."

Yeah... the company i work for consists of 95% white males. We have two women that work here, one is a secretary, the other is an accountant. So i put on headphones, blast "Silent Shout" and try to enjoy the irony of it all.

I so feel you on this one...I don't even want to think about the hours of my life I wasted on iStock, Getty, Geer, etc. downloading shots of marathon relay baton passes and other sports related "teamwork" shots for company events.

I also love how the boss always asks you to find "diversity" photos with the token black/asian/woman (particularly all in one person) because it's easier to portray an ideal of workplace diversity than actually live up to the ideal by hiring anyone of color into the 99% WASP male office.

Here in Chocolate City, thre are actual people of color! I know, it's pretty weird. But I'm getting used to it.

I'm with you on the task. Stock photos suck. But clients want their faces and they want them cheap. It's a living and it's better than designing nuclear armaments.

On another topic, what the fuck happened to your h3 styling? Looks like ass dude. You can do better. And not just the being consistent with caps or no caps, but the typography in general. Fix it man.

On the upshot... Highgate is worth $7,903.56.

Nice, i guess now's the time to announce that i'm taking opening bids on Highgate, potential bidders should contact me via Carrier Pigeon.

My H3 tags.... i don't see the problem, do you have an issue with large H3s? is the font or Coloring that is offending? Or are you just being a nit-picking nancy.

I didn't know you were white.

Yeah, but nuclear armament design probably pays substantially better & at least with that people hate you instead of just looking through you...

oh, what i'd give to be hated...

I can loan you a few of the people that hate me; I sure I have plenty to spare.
