The Sharpening the Blades series is back! Every week, we will provide articles that we have found useful to help us improve our skills.
Luke – “Find the Twin Sumo” or “No, Your Client is Not an Idiot”
This is an article I need to read often to remind myself to calm down when going back and forth with clients about design. The North Temple clan put a great analogy on the process of working with a client to create a great design. I think the strategy that they propose is something that many designers know and understand, however knowing what you should do when working with a client and putting that knowledge to practice can sometimes be difficult. Give their article a read and apply what they propose next time you are designing for a client.
Chad – Steve Jobs, Superman
With the passing of Steve Jobs lately it seems that the every article is about him. I have learned more about him and his style. He was truly an amazing man. I like this article for multiple reasons. With all the articles out there this one is powerful and short. It also highlights other people not just Steve. But at the end of the article you realize just how powerful of a man he was.
