Dream Commission

A recent hicksdesign enquiry, included a line that irked me rather.

And I guess you are only interested in multiple digits contracts…

I’m currently involved in The Big Project for Attap which is keeping me busy for quite a while, but busy doesn’t mean money grabbing. I have, do, and will hopefully continue to, work for charities and causes where the satisfaction comes more from the subject than the budgets. Which brings me to this:

When I was interviewed for MacUser magazine last year, I finally got the question I’d always hoped someone would ask.

What would your dream commission be?

The answer I gave them, is still the same now. I’d love it if tomorrow the phone rang, and found it was the Omnigroup wanting to know if I’d like to work on the interface for next release of Omniweb. I do tend to moan about this from time to time, but sometimes Omniweb feels like it needs some Panic or Watanabe style polish. Now, I’m probably not the right person for the job, and I don’t expect it to be a ‘multiple digits contract’, but thats what I’d most like to work on.

I’m intrigued, what would yours be?
