If there is anyone who is critical, harsh, and controlling . . . it's Nikki. She must get this from my mother. Thank goodness my mother will probably not see this, I hope.
Anyway, I decided to take it upon myself to design our logo. My first attempt took me a little under an hour. I was so proud of myself. I immediately sent the PDF file to Nikki.
She calls me two minutes later: "Uh, I got the file."
"What do you think?"
"Well . . . . uh . . . I do like the DNA part. I hate that other font. What is that, Freebooter or something?" (Nikki can identify fonts on sight)
"Yeah, it was free."
"Yeah, well, there's a reason why it's free. I hate it. And what's up with that graphic in the background? I hate that too. But I DO LIKE the DNA part."
So it was back to Photoshop with DNA looking at me. It was the only part that survived.
I was on the phone with Nikki when she saw my second attempt on her computer.
"OH, I LOVE IT!"
Now I can breathe.
