not everybody’s cut out for “normal”

Another new cartoon for the Rackspace series….

Basically, I took the old “George” idea and re-jigged it, adding the trademark Rackspace red & black.

And hey, it worked.

I see this cartoon going in the slide deck of Rackspace’s recruiters.

We’re not a ‘normal’ company  etc. It’s OK not to be ‘normal’ etc. ‘Normal’ is boring etc.

It’s easy for a small company to have a distinct personality. Much harder when the company has grown a lot, like Rackspace has done in the last few years.

Much harder to NOT be normal…

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.

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