Graphic Design Cordship

Design status @ Saarang on Twitpic

Newsletter day1, Saarang 2010 says -

"I forgot that you guys existed" - One member of the core group to a SHELL-shocked design core as she handed him some work.

FR cord looking at a design cord`s badge and said "you guys have no work.. peace da"

"Why do you need extra coupons da?" A catering vol to a design cord.

& many more....

Can you name the cords whose work starts 5 months before Saarang and continues even after Saarang?
It is the DESIGN team.

How do you feel if someone wakes you up at 3 A.M. and says a poster needs to be done asap ?
How do you feel when someone calls you at 8 and says "Macha, you need to design a poster in 2 hours.. otherwise the printing shop gets closed and we are screwed... I shall provide you the contents soon" & that "soon" extends to one and half hour?

After putting infinite fight for making the teaser for Saarang 2010, some high-positioned(culsec/proshows core/... I dont know.. I dont care) guy calls up and says, "SkidRow is coming.. please include that & remake the teaser"
How the hell should we synchronize the music with the video ?
Still, we did make it happen.
Now, skidrow packed. :|

"Peace putting cordship" an EP cord to a design cord.
What the hell is meant by putting peace?? What the fuck do you show to Shankar Ehsaan Loy or Hammerfall if we did not design a brochure for professional shows? What the fuck will you publicize about Saarang if we did not make any poster?

A catering vol comes and proudly says, "I stamped on 200 coupons today and I got extra coupons for that" as if he built a Taj Mahal and he was earning for that.
Should a design guy say "I worked from 5 months and I did not get any extra coupons" ?

Pack the coupons. Eat yourself. We dont care.
But, please dont make comments like this. It hurts from inside.

Every core does work. Every coordinator does work. Every volunteer does work. Otherwise, Saarang/Shaastra or whatever can not happen. Please dont unnecessarily blame or comment anyone.

We love design.

Boneywasawarriorwayayix said...

Hey,
I can't believe you took the newsletter seriously. :P
It also said they got to kidnap Security and Hospi cores and douse them with kerosene. Royally raped the event cores and spons whores. So, why do you seem so pained with it? It didn't single design out. :P

ravi teja said...

@above - Light da. Its not just the newsletter with which I was pissed off.. there are many other factors..
anyways thnks for ur comment :)
May I know who u r..
