We all have side projects. Me, for example, I write comic books. Not for a living, mind you, but on the side I have this little project where I write scripts for comics, working hard to get better so that one day I'll be good enough to write professionally.
Addison Foote is a designer, and his side project was redesigning every logo in the NBA, the results of which can be seen below. It turns out that was quite the popular concept, and it gained a lot of traction a few months back, even bringing it to the attention of the NBA. Not only did they like the work, but they contracted him to do some design work for them, too.
See? Sometimes those little side projects that you've got buried away can turn into something fruitful. And with that in mind, I'm going to go work on a script.
