Every year I get emails from design students as part of their uni projects, asking me specific questions about my background, my career as a designer and the challenges of working in your own business.
Today I answered this years question by Andrew
"What is the most important thing a Designer has to learn?"
with just 2 lines as he asked for a short answer:
"Stay curious, be willing to learn something new every time you start a new job and never forget that the client knows more about his business than you do."
"How it works is even more important for a design than how it looks."
