daily bizcard 12: james governor

Today’s “Daily Bizcard” design, “I’m Not Dying”, goes to my favorite tech consultant, James Governor.

James and his partners have a small tech consultancy firm, Redmonk, which handles blue chip clients like Microsoft, SAP, Dell etc.

Redmonk have an interesting (and highly effective) way of marketing themselves. Because they come up with so many ideas, they can only realistically execute on 10% of them.

What do they do with the other 90%? Easy. The give them away for free on their blogs. Simple, but it works.

James probably knows more good consultant jokes than anyone I know. So I thought maybe he could use another one, hence the cartoon above. Exactly.

[James, please send me an e-mail at gapingvoid@gmail.com with your shipping address and the details you want on the back of the bizcard, and I'll send a free batch of 100 to you. Thanks!]

Hugh MacLeod is a genius.  Genius.

His work acknowledges the absurdity of workaday life, while also encouraging employees to respond with passion, creativity, and non-conformity...   MacLeod’s work is undeniably an improvement over the office schlock of yore. At its best, it’s more honest, and more cognizant of the entrepreneurial psyche, while still retaining some idealism.

Last year my State of the College address was 76 slides loaded with data. This year it was 14 cartoons that were substantially more memorable.

"There are only two daily newsletters that I look forward to opening and reading every time they show up to my inbox: Seth Godin's and gapingvoid."

In moments of indecision I glance at the wall [to Hugh's work] for guidance.
