I went to Chicago for a couple of desk sides and TV interviews. A deskside is like a job interview for designers. You show your product to an editor and they would either politely or ruthlessly tell you that your designs isnt the right fit or they just dont like it. The first one was a kick on my proverbial "nuts", she just outrightly said that she didnt like it.
The second one was a very nice lady who hijacked me with a live interview in Chicago. Good thing, I bothered to brush my hair and do a lot of eyebag concealing. Im not a morning person.
It was funny shooting with a green screen behind me so that they can put the Chicago skyline at the back.
That day, Dan decided to take to a White Sox vs San Francisco Giants game which I think I jinxed. At least the next game, the team that he was rooting for- the cubs, won. I really think that the sports fervor in ever state fascinates me. I wouldnt want to mess with any hardcore fan of any sport.
