A Tale of Sword and Drum

It’s Feudal Japan, on a bright May morning. The cherry blossoms and tulips are making way for draperies of wisteria. All around, the beat of the Taiko drums reverberates through the air. In the distance, there come the sounds of kiai, and the crash of bamboo striking bamboo, threatening to drown out the shouts. A dog calls and yips as the nearby boats drift past, the low thrum of their engines interspersed with the occasional horn…

I scream, you scream, we all scream…

It’s rare that I get this geeked about a project, but this one really came together – and we aren’t done yet.

You may recall this post and this post from the last couple months.  I have been part of assorted groups focusing on art direction and team-oriented projects.  For this round – the assignment was “dessert.”  We may have gone a bit off the reservation…

Our focus was on taste – specifically, a taste that you would go through horrible experiences just to enjoy.

As with each previous set – our teams got shuffled before-hand.  This time around Jessica McIntyre, Brian Doig, Nancy Garcia, and myself got our sweet tooth on.

– Be sure to swing by in the next week or so – we’ve got some video with your name on it.
