Business As Usual

business cartoon

Well it’s a new year, and I can’t think of a better way to start off than with a fresh sales graph cartoon!

I love coming up with different ways to play with a line or bar graph, and then sort of reverse engineering it to see what sort of a business or product it might fit. For example, with this cartoon I was playing with the idea that when the line hit the side of the graph that it might bounce back the other way.

So, after a few minutes of playing with some different choices (tennis balls, pogo sticks, etc…), those little rubber super bouncy balls came to mind and all of a sudden that line made perfect sense.

Any other company would look at this and run for the hills. But for the good people at Super Bouncy Ball, this is just what they’re looking for.
