When the Mayor spots you across the room and says “Hey, we need to talk”, you immediately…
a) Look around, and wonder if he really meant you.
b) Say “I love talking!” and realize how ridiculous you now sound.
c) Get so excited that the Mayor actually knows you and your work that your brain stops working and does cartwheels.
d) All of the above.
Yup, I’m D all the way yo’. Not even going to play it cool here. After years of staying at home anonymously working on design and illustration and *never* actually meeting my clients, I’m still taken aback when anyone knows me, my company or my work. Thankfully our Mayor is super accessible and down to earth, and too kind to notice. We met once to chat about his vision for this project – infographics to accompany his upcoming State of the City Address. I have to say that this was an easy collaboration between the City of Guelph and Pigeon Design Lab. The results were fantastic as I sat proudly in the audience during his State of the City Address. His speech seamlessly complemented the infographics and had everyone saying that it was the best State of the City to date.
