  1. This is so great. I have an interview this Friday and I gained confidence and inspiration with every panel. I really enjoyed The Designer’s Guide to Business & Careers. Keep up the good work, going to see if I can pick up a poster my next paycheck, until then, I’m going to use this as my desktop background.

  2. This is great. Pretty much all sound advice. Very effective design.

  3. I don’t get this “Reject Personal Style” but “Define your audience” is pretty important.

    “Your mac is a tool” is funny!

  4. ^Reject personal style means to embody the clients persona and message, instead of hiding it behind your own preconceived aesthetic.

  5. So inspirational…love this

  6. I don’t have a Mac, does that matter?

  7. WATCH

  8. “defend yourself” that one might be my favorite

  9. Hello colleagues, its impressive piece of writing on the topic of teachingand fully defined,
    keep it up all the time.
