Adobe’s textile designer reveals what went wrong with her first print job
Textile designer Cheryl Pecora says her first printing job at Adobe was the result of a “miscommunication” after she was told she would have to use a different printer for the final print.
Pecora was initially offered the job as a graphic designer at Adobe but after “further communication” with the firm she was instead told she had to use the same printer for all the print jobs at the firm.
“I was really disappointed and confused because we had a very strong communication relationship,” Pecoria told the BBC.
“I had been offered this job and it was very clear from our relationship that this was going to be my first print.”
Pecoria worked at Adobe for two years and left in February this year to start her own textile business.
She told the news channel that while she did not initially plan to go back to Adobe, she is “confident” the problems with her initial print job will not affect her work at the company.
“The biggest lesson I learned was that this isn’t just a printing job.
This is about how you communicate,” she said.
“The way you design is so important.
You don’t want to have a blank page.
You need to have an open space to do that.
It’s very important to communicate what’s going on.
It might be a new project but the design has to be ready.”
