It’s a miracle this article turned out how it did. Although I planned for the content in advance (A mixture of being able to do my own research at a gaming expo event, and holding another brainstorming session at The Spriters Resource Community), when it came to production week, I had fallen very ill. I dragged myself to the offices to get some of the work done – and succeeded – but it was with barely any of the formatting and style that I normally try to put into my work. Things looked pretty dire.
Fortunately, the Editor who ranked above me was able to work on the page in my absence, and saved it from being a complete train wreck. I was eventually able to get my shit sorted, and added the formatting finishing touches. You can tell that some of the layout features aren’t in my usual style, but in a way it makes the page look even fresher. The background gradient turned out way too desaturated though.
While I do complain about my situation in York Vision, there were at least one or two people who cared enough to look out for me. I’m lucky.
