One of my returning customers recently approached me with some last minute work, we'd discussed this particular piece of work a few months back and he had only just received the sizes that he needed for the print design. I have managed to create a quick turnaround of the design which is in-keeping with the rest of his brand.
The design is a small magazine advertisement for a local event which is occuring in Ashbourne, the Ashbourne Soap Box Race. Thousands of people are expected to be attending, presumably with copies of this magazine, outlining the events for the day. This local work with Dougie is beneficial to both me and him, me being local allows us to meet up and talk whenever need be about a project, it also draws other local clients, with Dougie himself indirectly bringing me another client from the local area.
This line of work with Dougie and The Last Word cocktail has been beneficial in directly and indirectly providing me with work, and the locality of the work is not only handy through the work, but also allows for shorter lead times on projects, which makes everyone happy!
