Hey I Wrote A Book!

LAUNCH IT - 300+ things Iíve learned as a Designer, Developer and Creative Director. For over 15 years I have talked with fellow designers, developers and digital creatives who were asking for advice on how to launch their careers. As a Creative Director, I have mentored people on topics like work ethic, finding inspiration, creative process, skill acquisition, how to get a job, handling clients, agency life, freelance, self-promotion and work life balance. I scoured through years of old emails, interviews, presentations and conversations for any advice that I had given others. Some of those findings are loosely organized into this book.
