Seeing a post on Reddit to the affect that Cards Against Humanity were looking for a Junior Designer seemed too good to be true. So, in the spirit of most of my endeavors, I decided to put a whole shitload of work into a scheme with nary a promise of a positive outcome! First, of course, I submitted my resume like a regular schmo. But then I thought: “Hey, I’m barely qualified for this job, I better try and impress these jerks!”
So, I thought I’d buy them doughnuts in the hopes that some/all of the team is violently diabetic. And, with my girlfriend’s help, I delivered them a little bundle of Doughnuts Against Humanity.
Using the “Print Your Own Deck” template from CAH’s site, I created a set of suitably-offensive half-sized cards all covered in clever.
Printed out on sturdy cardstock, these will put your eye out. Or, suitably lodge themselves inside a doughnut! I ordered a dozen from the best doughnut bakery in Chicago (namely, Glazed And Infused), but they wouldn’t deliver the damn things because the cards where too offensive. True story. So, we took matters into our own hands, taped my resume inside the box, plopped the cards into the doughnuts, and away they went in my g/f’s Magical Doughnut Delivery Chariot (Scion Xb model).
In the end, it looks like the fine folks at CAH got the doughnuts and likely wiped their slovenly mouths all over my resume. And that’s fine with me, because it was a lot of fun and now I know where they all work.
I also made my own little sticker-doodle for the box, dontchaknow.
Thanks to my g/f for the idea and execution, Glazed And Infused for selling me the doughnuts anyways, and CAH for being fat bastards and allowing them in the door.
