Carole’s editorial about the design interview tactics I had posted earlier.

Someone recently referred to our profession as this: “Oh designers they ALL are in this weird space.”

Careful of the mind leeches who will suck up the life out of you, if granted. Respect yourself, your ideas and build a solid portfolio.

Protect yourself with a long list of contractual items. Anything more costs more. Period.

When things are going to be OK, good vibe, synergy, match of need and talent, get it all down in writing still!

One of the most unpredictable relationship to be in is probably a client / designer one.

One day they luv you… the other day, they are waging war.

In the end, whoever signs the cheque is the boss. So make sure to cut it fair for yourself.

And although it may be hard, if everything does not go according to plan, take your part of responsibility and move on.

A career is a learning process
