I’ve been remiss in my posts recently because I’ve been trying to make a little freelance money. I found a couple of websites where companies post contests and artists submit logos, book covers and illustrations. If you win you get money. 99designs and crowdspring if you’re interested…
I’ve learned a lot. Sometimes the best design wins. Sometimes it’s yours. Sometimes the client has no taste what-so-ever. It’s international so you see designs from all over the world. Did you know there is such thing as a “Cat Cafe”? Meow you do.
Well…I’m busy surfing contests and submitting designs and I come across this posting for “Seduction”. “Mind Hacks”. “Live”. I have to admit, I’m intrigued. It’s for a set of DVDs that tell men how to pick up women “at night” and “on the street”. I honestly thought it was called prostitution and you just needed money, but I was wrong.
There is an entire niche market for “programs” to tell you how to do this. To my girlfriend’s dismay I entered the contest. It was a challenge that I thought I knew about–I’ve picked up a couple of girls in my day. I was very wrong about what they wanted…
I submitted tasteful and elegant logos and pages to show off their product. Nothing. No response. Other designers submitted “sexy silhouettes” with nipples and everything and they got 4 out of 5 stars. I obviously was out of my league on this one. My real estate, dog party and coffee shop logos did fine, but I bombed when it came to “knowing how to mind hack a broad”.
Not one to give up I looked on Amazon to see if there were other products out there. I was amazed.
The author of one particular guide on Amazon is a “Master Pick Up Artist”
This DVD collection seems self explanatory.
I was devastated. I was under the impression that because I was a woman and dated women I knew how to pick them up. Wow, was I wrong.
With money from my Charity and Real Estate logos I’m going to buy a couple of books. I can’t wait to get started…
