So I’ve asked my mother for a set of business cards for Christmas. She sent me an email with a design suggestion, and some questions about what I want included on the card, since I’m a freelance journalist and work for different publications.
And what she suggested was just so God-awful. It was a tan card, with an up close picture of a typewriter’s keyboard, with the quote, “Words-the window to nirvana” on it and a link to my incredibly unprofessional food blog.
So I very nicely send her an email back explaining that I would like a very clean, professional card. And the whole time, all I could think about was this scene.
