What’s In Your Wallet?

with one comment

Have you looked at your business card recently? If not you should. MKTG INC’s cards are known for their unique perspective and purpose (the latter being expressly to embarrass their bearer, natch). In our new column, we take a look at the business cards of our coworkers and hear the stories behind them. Here’s the story behind the business card of Nikhil Parsad, Art Director from MKTG’s San Francisco office.

Try. To. Focus.
You know how some people can’t look you in the eyes when they speak to you? Whether its a nervous reaction or they’re lying, I’ll never know. That’s how distracting the hair is. And the distraction continues to…erm…distract even on my business card because it quite literally says nothing about me professionally.

Yes, we know the hair blinds. Its sculptural, meringue-like peaks. Its cavalcade of rainbow tinctures.
I read somewhere that your hair is the outfit you wear every day and that it deserves more than just routine. Over the years, the hair has slowly become my brand, if you will. Its had its fair share of experiments; parts on the left, parts on the right, the middle (ugh), Faux hawks, Brohawks and my personal favorite, the “Fro Hawk”. Moral here is change is good, evolution is better.

Every tress strains to touch the heavens, like an army of pagan troll dolls worshipping the sun before battle.
Translation: I never have bad hair days.

Yes, that hair is a monument to acts of hirsute heroism.
I guess this is where my actual job comes in. Some people wear their stress on their face or body language, but I like to think the hair takes a brunt of that stress from my day to day. At least that’s what I tell people on days where I’m working on 6 different creative projects for 6 different clients.

Nevertheless: eyes right here, pal.
Moral of the story, don’t judge a designer by their hair.
