It turns out that you can get to work on cool stuff just by going to a client and saying, “What if we did this?” I did that a couple of months ago. Ever since, I have been working on a special project for a client.
My justifications for why this would be worthwhile:
- It plays to my strengths as an introverted geek who likes to interview people and gather information
- As a fan of this band, I would love this
That was it. Green light given.
Of course, I was ready to answer any hard-hitting questions…
“Have other artists had success with this?”
I’m not sure anyone has done this before.
“Besides you, would other people like this?”
Possibly. I have no idea.
