We're baaack and, if you can believe it, even more dysfunctional.
There have been a few changes and additions to Jeff Lewis Design. One big change is that the office has moved to West Hollywood. We're still working from Jeff's home, only this time our desk is in his living room. And by "our" desk, I mean the desk Jeff and I now share. I've come to terms with the new placement, but I do have legitimate concerns about the permanent damage I may have to my left ear. A big addition to the office has been Gage, who manages the business affairs and opportunities Jeff is presented with.
There have been several other additions at JLD and that would be the growing client list. We're busier than we've ever been before. With that, I've been able to really exercise my full-time promotion after my graduation and help out more with the new projects. I think there's been more delegation of work to Sarah and I. Sarah will work more on one particular project and I may help more on another. The office is expanding and we're all taking on more of the responsibility. Each project and client has different needs, but whether one sub-contractor makes you pose for a glamour shot or another leaves a dirty condom on a kitchen counter, there's pretty much a guarantee for something weird and unexpected.
Tune in next week for more of the weird and unexpected, because I can assure you, we have plenty to go around at Jeff Lewis Design!
Keep it gangster.
Pascal Trace, Just wishing you the best because you are going to need it. Do you make mistakes too like Sarah or are they of a lesser nature? I think everyone is just overwhelmed and then Jeff Lewis goes crazy and it's just a bit much. Of course, as the owner of a business, he has a lot on his shoulders so his response is even more intense, however I wouldn't want to work for him. We would come to blows and I would seriously bop Jeff. How do you manage it? Have you checked your blood pressure lately - bet it's elevated? Stay cool and keep designing great spaces. Keep walking past the open windows.
Trace please tell me the jackass that slapped you last season has since apologized. I know violence does not defeat violence but one of those large glasses of water or iced tea to the face would've been a nice wake up call. Thank God for Jenny who had the balls to take charge of the situation. But now I don't understand why Jeff gets so upset with Sarah for not taking charge with the contractor when he couldn't say one single word to someone who PHYSICALLY ASSAULTED you right in front of him! I know this is an amazing opportunity for you, hopefully Jeff has learned to protect his "family".
After I watched one episode I will never watch it. When this guy has the audacity to say, "my clients respond to pretty people" and wants pics and then asked his employee if perspective employees are young and younger I almost puked.
Congradulations on your graduation. I'm glad you are now able to take on more responsibility at JDL. Keep up the great work. Love the show.
