My Last and 3,348th Day at G&R

Based on the official record, I’ve spent exactly 9 years and 2 months at G&R. There were 2 leap years within this time. So it’s my 3,348th day at G&R and it’s going to be the last day here.

If I include the inception period of G&R as well, few more hundreds days would be added. Compare to my current age, it’s around 30% of my lifetime!

9 years ago when I started at G&R, we were just a team of 3 people. Today when I’m leaving, we’re a part of such a big family that it’s hard to get the exact count of the members.

Working at G&R was one of the best things of my life. Though it was challenging most of the time but it was exciting too. In the meantime I grew in many ways – from 27 to 36, bachelor to a husband, no one to a father of 3 kids. Moreover now I’m not just a confused university student like I was in the beginning.

At G&R I’ve learnt the best lessons – it’s not only about work but also about many other things all of which I will take with me throughout my life.

I got the chance to work with so many people who are not only super talented but also great human beings. There were total 55 colleagues who worked with me in this 9 years of time. I’ve signed several hundreds of cheque in the name of our publishers which I always considered as the most rewarding part of my career.

As many of you already know that in the next chapter, G&R will be operated as a fintech utilizing the NOC it has received last year to develop an ewallet. Hopefully it’s going to be the next big thing.

For me, the next chapter is to focus on something which I really love. Stay in touch.

work scope

sometime actually most of the time when I work, I feel myself so lucky that I have the opportunity to work (one thing should be clear: here work means which will bring you some money, food or fame or some other materialistic benefits). Leisure is good but it’s a really awful when you don’t have anything to do for a long time. So let us discuss how to make opportunities to work and definitely I’ll talk here from the perspective of a graphic designer.

1. Most importantly you need a job… no matter how much they are paying you. You need a platform to learn and show your talent.
2. It’s my belief that in this universe very few people are extra ordinary talented… real creative and definitely I am not among them. So when I work I never try to do any extra ordinary thing… don’t think that this work is going to be a milestone… I just try to understand what the client wants to say, I try to imagine a visual which ten other ordinary people also able to do. It always helps to reduce the pressure of the work.
3. Don’t be silent… share your ideas with your friends, colleagues… even sometime with the rickshaw pullers. It’ll help you to expand your work scope.
4. Patience is too important for a designer… there is no alternative. So keep practicing typography lot… it’ll help you to increase your skill and patience both.
5. Don’t give up any scope of work unless you are in a huge pressure. Sometime work just as volunteer… it helps building reputation.

Ha ha ha… so clever and wise writing! Did I ever follow any of these? I know you have your own way of working. Just keep the faith on you… you’ll be the part of the next history…
