My beautiful desk -- Part Two

Oh, my beautiful desk, my forehead embraces you once again. Thud, thud, thud...

Yes, again my head bounced upon the desk before me. The marketing deities "redesigned" a brochure for me (and an envelope). Or rather, they supplied me with a couple sheets of paper that included taped images (yes, someone took the time to cut up old printed marketing material and tape it to a sheet of white paper) of where they would like product placement and scribbled notes in pencil and ink designating copy placement. As silly as it may sound, this "redesign" attempt by the marketing deities was very helpful. They had used a form of communication that they understood and I was able to translate their desires. I was truly grateful… until I discovered they wanted to see full-color samples by tomorrow (because marketing deities have holidays and won't be available the rest of the week).

And yea, verily, it will be a very long dark night with the caffeine goddess. Thud, thud, thud...
