Hillman Curtis Interview Cont'dML:Take us through a typical day working on a project.
HC:Mike, there's never really a typical day. This week I'm spending more than an average amount of my time chasing the sometimes convoluted directives of my current and unusually difficult client. But still I imagine that this week I will, perhaps, come into the office at about 8 a.m., brew up a double espresso...maybe get an egg sandwich from the corner pizza place, check emails...quickly answer them and get to work designing...making the changes the client requested. Between 9 and 9:30 the rest of the crew will start to wander in, and I will check in with them...see how they are doing. This week I think, Ian is finishing up an animation as well as working with Matt wrapping the first phase of a big ad job. Homera is holding the shop together, as usual, managing every ones time and dealing with the clients, deadlines, and deliverables. Grant will probably spend the week helping me with the job I'm on and designing my new book, which is due out in the winter. At 11:30 most days, Homera and I will conference call with a client for a review of changes. Immediately thereafter we will meet and recap the new requests and Homera will put it all in writing and send it to the client for sign off. Often at this time I stop for a moment, get another espresso or a big thing of water and ask Homera what else I should be doing. She'll tell me maybe that I need to write a new chapter, review the editors changes on previous chapters, edit the new RollingStone.com video, answer an interview, design a print ad, and so on. Then, before I know it it's six thirty and I'm rushing out to grab a subway home.
