Adventures in Graphic Design

30 Jul Posted by in Work | 11 comments

My average week consists of a 5 day work week – in which I greet customers most of the day at my mom’s custom frame shop. But with mom gone all last week I found myself actually missing work!

So Dad offered me up the chance to go to work with him – and try my paw at being a graphic designer just like my dad!

I arrived at work early, and was excited to see if they had set me up with a window office.

Unfortunately they must not have known how important I am, because my “office” was a spot on the floor – hardly conducive to working on graphic design! Humph!

I took a tour around the office, and then it was time to get down to business.

I helped dad with some of his work, but quickly grew bored of staring at a computer screen. Somehow the job sounded much more glamorous than I thought – or at least I was hoping we would be designing something I was interested in – like dog food ads!

So I took the rest of the afternoon off and parked myself by the front door – waiting for customers to come just like I do at mom’s shop.

Unfortunately dad’s office does not have the same sort of traffic flow as mom’s retail business – so my “happy to meet you tail wag” didn’t get much use.

That’s ok though, because I used all the free time I had to “clean” the kitchen before lunch for all of the hard-working employees. I’m pretty sure it was much appreciated!

I had fun with dad at work, but I think I’d much rather greet customer’s at mom’s shop all day – sorry dad! But it’s good to be needed, no matter where I work! Ammo the Dachshund

    Hey Ammo, Sorry the graphic design gig didn’t turn out to be quite as exciting as you had hoped for. Looks like you made the best of it. I’m sure everyone was thrilled to have to there, especially your daddy!

    Ammo you would brighten up any work place!

    I think it is great that you can go to work with both Mom or Dad. I am sure you were on your best behavior at Dad’s office.

    That is so great that your Dad’s office allows dogs. I imagine graphic design to be a glamorous job too but it looks like a lot of computer stuff to me. Thank goodness he didn’t make you go to a boring meeting 🙂

      I actually got to skip out on the meeting that day and play with dad’s coworkers instead! Lucky me.

    That’s what I like. A dachshund with a real job!

    I think they should have set you up with an ipad or something similar! You needed an outlet for your creativity, I would like to see what kind of ads for dog food you would have designed!
