Adgrunts.com hosts a webcomic starring a number 2 pencil and blue pen who work in advertising - where else? This creative team of writer and art director battle bad briefs and hot shot creative directors just like the rest of us, despite being office supplies. I had a little chat with one half of the duo who created the comic, Jack Cheng.
DB:: So, A few questions. Who is it that are doing the comic, you and...?
Jack Cheng: Heather Flyte, a writer/graphics designer in Seattle.
DB: I hear you guys aren't even on the same coast - so how do you actually get this comic together?
Jack Cheng: What usually happens is we throw around rough ideas through instant messenger, then a day or two later, Heather emails me a finalized script and I lay it out and do the graphics. Heather doesn't work in advertising (though I'm convinced she'd make an awesome copywriter), and I only have limited experience since I'm still in school, but I imagine it's a lot like how most CW/AD teams work, the only exception being that we're not in the same physical location.
