Love this. Changing my job title to be “Putnam/Riverhead Ninja Cowgirl!”




This meta, recursive dip into memeland was inspired by Quirk Books’ brilliant one for book publishing. If our stock photo archive had a shot that better evoked a ninja cowgirl at a computer, we would have used that for “What I think I do” because who doesn’t like to think of themselves as some kind of roguish outlaw ruling the wild wild interwebs? Instead, you get a vacant-eyed, Vishnu-esque multitasker. So, uh, enjoy.

if we’re dropping what-i-actually-do truths here, our marketing departments are solely made up of ninjas. (proof.)
