STRESS

...with capital letters.

Remember in my previous entry about my cousin whom I asked to design the invitation card?

Guess what?

That particular cousin of mine bailed out on me! And it's 88 days till the wedding! How can I not be stressed out?

Why la when it's only 2++ months that he bailed out? Why la not sooner? I had asked him to design it in March. In March ok. And he said he can do it in a matter of time. I also asked him to do the "Thank You" tag as well. Nothing fancy, just a simple stripe-y card and simple "Thank You" tags. Knowing me, I don't want anything fancy. I prefer to keep it clean, chic and simple.

I may not know how to design it graphically and to properly convey my message to him, I showed him a sample of the design. Complete dengan sample sekali ok. His work was to copy it, change the colour a bit, add some wording and insert the map. But he couldn't do it. And said so last minute.

Should I went bonkers because of this? I was trying to cut cost tapi kalau jadi macam ni, seriously I don't mind paying. If paying someone to do it can make my life easier, why not.

To whom should I turn to? Any graphic designer who want to help me for free?

nak harap org mmg susah la...
tu aku design sendiri, masalahnya aku x creative, pastu outcome jadi buruk.

for the same price, kalu aku pandai skit, bole je add multiple colors n hot stamping.

ko amik je design yg dah ada, byk gak yg cantik2....
