The Investment Advisor newsletter design and the three proposed logo designs were for a start-up aiming for that old-line big-time Wall Street look. I rarely had clients this boring. That is to say, my graphics clients were most always in fields that interested me, usually on the margins of the entertainment business. I used to console myself, when having some difficulty with a client, with the notion that "at least they're not a bank"—meaning that at least the work is interesting and not overly constricted and formulaic the way it would be with a bank for a client.
Well, these people were in a "boring" field and yet they gave me the room to have fun with it. I surprised myself, and probably them, how much I could behave myself and do something really quite appropriate to their field.
