During this festive season, we’d like to wish everyone a safe and restful holiday and a prosperous New Year. We would also like to leave you a parody of the well known Christmas poem, “Twas the Night Before Christmas.” We have taken the liberty to rewrite the verses for our graphic designers, illustrators, photographers, film makers, web designers, and artists. It is entitled:
‘Twas the Night Before Deadlines
by Frank Ling aka “no. 2 pencil”
‘Twas the night before deadlines, when all through the house,
Not a designer was stirring, not even a computer mouse;
All the projects were saved to the servers with care,
In hopes they could be worked on again and not disappear;
The artists were nestled so snug in their beds;
While visions of CS5 danced in their graphical heads;
When out in the parking lot there arose such a clatter,
They all sprang from their beds to see what was the matter.
As everyone froze in the night’s frigid cold,
A man appeared dressed in Times New Roman bold!
He was carrying a large sack so full and so heavy,
It was brimming with software packages making everyone so merry.
“Now Pantone, now Photoshop, now Maya and Flash,
I’ll give you all software that won’t make your computers crash!”
Then as quickly as the man so suddenly appeared,
He ran into his van and put it in gear.
He yelled out the window and to all of our delight,
He exclaimed “Merry Designing to all, and to all a good night!”
Happy Holidays Everyone!!
