|It's fun being evil.|
One thing I really love about the office is how carried away people get with pranks. If they can't do it themselves, they enlist the help of someone who can! I must admit, I do love using my Photoshop powers for evil once in a while.
So how did this come to pass? Well, an esteemed colleague of mine noticed how another colleague slightly resembled Kim Jong Un, son of Kim Jong Il — the North Korean dictator who just died. Yesterday he asked me if I could put the other colleagues face on that picture if I had a spare moment. Seeing as I love office shenanigans, I obliged. Since it turned out so well, he got a little more elaborate and asked if I could turn it into an Editorial-style poster. He sent me the words and chose the other pictures and I put this baby together in like 5 minutes. It was rather funny, and the dude in the picture even asked if I could email it to him so he could post it on his Facebook page...
***Amendment***Since I'd rather not accidentally piss off North Korea, I took the pictures down... Sure they were good, but this still makes for a pretty good story I think.
|"Find a picture of Caroline Wozniacki looking sexy," they told me|
|It was hard to find a picture of Hewitt not being a humongous douche|
|Those are silhouettes of players in the tournament!|
|Nice big montage because there was no ad for this page|
|Hmm, what does this look like?|

|The place was pretty packed!|
Remember when I went to that UWA Save the Children book sale in August? I bought a whole lot of records, sheet music and books! The sheet music was quite amazing. Anyway, they had a section with some really old books, like 20s-50s and even older. I didn't buy all the books here, but I took plenty of pictures. How could I not? I'll do another post soon with the rest of the books. Then more tennis!
|This one's from 1929!|
|Looks a little sus if you ask me...|
|I bought this one. I have absolutely no intention of learning canasta.|
|My esteemed colleagues work station. Look, a small elephant!|
Above is a test to make sure everything was the right size and fitted okay... It did! Not that I was expecting otherwise. But after what happened in previous years, I just have a health level of paranoia when it comes to this sort of thing. I put on "TESTER" in nice big letters to make sure anyone who saw that page knew.
Also, if you look closely, you may see that the text is a bit short. That's because the baseline grid in the document kinda died, I've fixed that! I felt the need to mention that for any little designers out there who thought I overlooked it.
|Get it, cause it's a plotter! Yes, I'm so tired I'm making pathetic heading puns...|
Anyway, once liftouts and magazines are nearly finished, we print out proofs to the plotter. It has newspaper stock so we get a better idea of how colours and pictures will turn out. At this stage, everything gets read by the Subs, corrections are made and headlines are written. Now, I just have to keep my fingers crossed that some major player doesn't pull out or ad shapes change...
