Once upon a long, long time ago I applied for a job on a pornographic magazine. As a designer. I even went for an interview. In the interview I had to design two double page spreads in one hour. I remember finding that really hard at the time, whereas now it would be easy.
The day before the interview I sat down and tried to work some through some layouts on paper. Looking back they seem devoid of any real thought. Completely gridless! But colourful and all good fun.
I didn't get the job and I was told that my layouts weren't, er, graphic enough (not the graphic you and I mean). Shame - because they paid very well!
