The design company is not the only place to be a designer Younger designers often come to me looking for advice on getting hired. As most of my design work has been in self-employment, I’m not the best person to ask — one reason why I started the “What employers look for” series — but if you’re finding studio work hard to come by, I overheard this valuable tip in a chat between Mike Dempsey and Michael Wolff.

It’s what we do well Designers love the “breakthrough moments” in a working relationship.
