Why Employees Are Always A Bad Idea

Renowned business thought leader Chuck Blakeman approached me earlier in 2013 to design a book cover for his upcoming book entitled “Why Employees Are Always A Bad Idea”. It’s about how the business world has left the Industrial Age and entered what Chuck terms the “Participation Age” – where businesses will have to adapt to a new climate in order to survive and thrive. I’ve always admired Chuck’s “tell it like it is” demeanor, and have been so lucky to get to work with him.

For the book cover, Chuck and I discussed the book’s contents at length before diving in. Chuck had previously selected the base image of the punch-clock. Fermentable Sugar LLC added a substantial amount of wear-and-tear to the clock, giving the appearance of a punch clock that was discarded just after 5pm on the last day a business ever used it and was lost to time. Eventually, rust overcame the paint and the glass cracked.
