This was the first proper freelance project I got involved in. It was fairly challenging as I was brought in at the last minute - thrown in at the deep end as it were. I had about a week from start to finish, and no written brief - all instructions were given in three way conference calls - Chicago (were the magazine was put together, New York (where the magazine was based, and Paisley. I'm glad I persevered though.
This first one must also be the weirdest brief I've ever had - financial institutions represented by superhero characters.
