I had the absolute honor of meeting Debbie Millman at Design Ranch several weeks ago, the partner and president of design at brand identity firm, Sterling Brands. She recently gave a brilliant talk at Creative Mornings in NYC (an event FreshBooks proudly sponsors) with lots of real world advice for creative folks. Entitled “10 Things I wish I knew when I graduated from college,” her talk speaks to what it means to be a great designer, key elements to strategic design and getting paid to do what you love (a core value at FreshBooks).
Give it a watch and let us know in the comments what you think!
I didn’t get a chance to really endear myself to Debbie when we met but I did stop bidding on a silent auction item of a friendship bracelet from Jessica Hische (something I really wanted), allowing Debbie to win as a friendly gesture.
