Print is more time consuming than web work, that is for sure. With my last project, Hutch Award Luncheon (my first big project at my new job) included print, invitations, web, and these really big graphics on an HD video screen at Safeco Field.
Of course, I did not do this alone. My first project, just trying to find files, learn the system, styles, printers, etc. I had lots of help. We decided to run over before the event to have a look and it was a little overwhelming to see the logo soooo large on the HD video screen.
With that project finished for this year (will start again in August for the next), I have all ready moved on to the new, big project along with lots of small stuff all day. In other words, my new job is really busy.
But just as working for the newspaper, when you see an illustration of yours waded up and thrown in the trash. Seeing all the printed collateral going to the trash, keeps it into perspective.
