A MUST READ.
Milton Glaser is one of my absolute favorites and this article he wrote for AIGA in 2001 is quite amazing. Very insightful.
Here are the 10 things he highlights:
1 You can only work for people that you like.
2 If you have a choice never have a job.
3 Some people are toxic, avoid them.
4 Professionalism is not enough or The good is the enemy of the great.
5 Less is not necessarily more.
6 Style is not to be trusted.
7 How ou live changes you brain.
8 Doubt is better than certainty.
9 On aging.
10 Tell the truth.
and here's the whole article. Again, a must read.
