I was the supreme leader organizer of the first "I Want to Work for an Evil Corporation" swap. It was a lot of fun and some really cool crafts came out of it! Grin I was wondering if anyone might be interested in a round two? If there is interest, I could start signups soon! Here are links to Round One's Discussion and Round One's Gallery.


Here is a more detailed description of the swap from the round one discussion:

" Have you ever found yourself watching a movie or TV show, playing a video game, reading a book or comic, or listening to a concept album that features an evil company and thought It would be so fun to work there! or This place doesn't sound that evil to me. I'd work there. or even Muahahahahaha! I LOVE EEEEEEVIL!!!!!? Then this swap is for you!

Participants list three companies theyd love to work for and get paired with a compatible coworker. You can choose a company from a preexisting work, but you also have the option of creating your own company. You and your coworker will make each other crafts based on their preferred companies. Things like plushies of characters that work for the company are okay, but its better to concentrate on items that simulate actually working there. Things like ID cards, company coffee cups, T-shirts with the company slogan on them, uniforms, rank or insignia patches, inspirational propoganda posters, performance reviews from their boss, flyers for the company picnic, a safety first sign with the number of days since the company's last industrial accident, a dashboard pass for the best corporate parking spaces, keychains with the company logo, an employee cafeteria menu, a badge for access to the most top secret rooms, a notebook with the corporate logo, employee development plans, stock certificates, lapel pins, business cards and anything else that makes your partner feel like they actually work there! You can give crafts based on multiple companies (could you imagine the epic evil mergers?) or just concentrate on one. "

I would also like to add that, while the official name of the swap is the "I Want to Work for an Evil Corporation Swap", non-corporations are welcome. You can craft for an Evil Guild, an Evil Law Firm, or even an Evil Post Office, as long as people are doing evil in an organized manner, this swap is for you!

So, anyone interested?

ETA: For those in need of evil inspiration, here is a list of evil companies on wikipedia. (Thanks to thefett for this link!)

I was just thinking about this swap, like, 2 days ago! I've discovered so many more evilly evil places of business since round one. I'm full up right now, though; later in the summer would probably work for me, but whatever everyone else can do. In any case I'm looking forward to the gallery  Smiley (it seems wrong to use a smiley face here, but I don't see one that exudes evil delight)

Well, I'd want to have a larger number of interested crafters before I started the swap, especially since people often express interest in the suggestion phase but cannot actually participate once signups start.
