Sometimes You Suck

Sometimes You Suck

Design is subjective, but sometimes your designs are irrefutably terrible. That might be in part because of a tough client or unrealistic deadlines, but that's not always your fault. Other times you are getting in your own way, and that's completely your fault. There's a lot in your head that that can screw you up, so let's talk about it. Let's talk about money and stealing, let's talk about ego and insecurity, fame and credit, donuts and sleep, and most importantly, let's talk about friendship and collaboration.
