This week I got a lot of calls from my clients regarding their design requests and mock-ups. Oooh! My phones were constantly ringing and in every call, I would to take that “deep breath” just to have the courage to talk to them. haha! The best thing about my job is that I could use my creativity to construct websites for those who are aiming to set up their company’s web presence. Well, online presence is a “must-have” nowadays. The bad thing is – deadlines! Boooooo!
Let me walk you through my “web designer” life because I rarely talk about it (well, there’s nothing much to talk about anyway) haha!
This is what every single client expects me to be. Dedicated, creative, serious, passionate, and always inspired. I embody all of these, don’t worry. I’m serious… at times when at work – you know…
I do a lot of these so that I could have money to pay for my daily expenses. – and to save up for a car! Basically making drafts, then sending them, then having them approved, then begins the actual coding, and voila! A great site! Easy breezy.
But somehow, when I get tired (who doesn’t?), I would go for a walk, or have coffee, or maybe eat some corn, try anything stupid on my hair, play with my pen, drink… well, looking like this for several hours… days… maybe weeks?
Nope. I’m not procrastinating. Or maybe I am – but in a good way. I believe this is my regular routine to keep those creative juices pumping. If not, then my clients would end up having a rainbow-looking website. haha!
After doing everything to calm me and to get me hyped up for another “carefully-crafted” web design… I end up with a stack of deadlines to beat!
This is the life! Ho-ho-ho! Who’s got the last laugh now?! Ciao!
