I'm tending to agree with what CAMOR is saying here.
If all the designers there have that "couldn't give a f*ck" attitude then maybe it's time to wonder why.
Maybe that's what happens to the designers who've stayed in that environment for too long?
Do you want that to happen to you?
I once worked in a studio cranking newspaper ad's out and on a slow day I decided to design a client a top smart ad to replace their starburst heavy (you know the thing) type ad and did them a really nice job.
I got the feedback: "but it looks too good".
I left shortly after that.
Sometimes you just have to realise that you just can't turn the tide by yourself.
Sounds like you are the kind of designer who's work is very important to them and maybe this place isn't right for you.

I only just got the title of your thread.
Very clever. :)

Cheers @aldous yeh, these started as sketches but end up as vectors — i do like the flatness and lines I get from using Illustrator and the Wacom.
@scotty I am becoming more and more tempted to get onto some cans, you know will probably give it a crack in the next few weeks. I'll put up my effort once I get round to it.
I take it, having done murals and all, that you're well versed in cans? Tips?

@trex @scotty Thank you for the nice comments guys! :)
@cheli I wanted to focus on one theme and create an icon set, but I just started with the things I like (skateboard, pet, sun etc) and ended up creating miscellaneous icons. It would have stood out more if I focused on one theme, eh?
