I specifically need high-res images of creative-looking people reviewing stuff in an office and it has to have a shit-ton of lens flare. Don’t ask. It’s part of the aesthetic.

Pls send through any images asap.

Can one of you photoshop out the watermark on these? I need them but I’m not going to pay $595 for an image. For a haircut, yes. For an image, no.

Team.
I only have 4 hours until I have to present this to the board so I’m going to need everyone to work on this now. I know I said I was going to do it myself but that was then and this is now.

Check out the lens flare on these bad boys. It’s like these people work on the sun.

Hey team,

I finished the presentation (attached) and, after a lot of soul-searching, decided to go in a different direction. I realized it’s not about the content of the deck, it’s about a feeling. It’s time for us to cut the jargon and get back to basics. No bullshit, just values.

lmk what you think.

Thx
