Over at Design Observer remarks from Chris Pullman shares the 10 lessons he learned in his 35 years as the VP of Design at WGBH
1 Work on things that matter.
2 Work with people you like and respect.
3 Be nice.
4 Have high standards.
Don’t settle for “whatever.” The corrosive Dilbert mind-set is depressing and demeaning. Wherever you choose to work, don’t give it a foothold. I prefer the “see you and raise you one” escalation of good ideas, even crazy ideas. High standards is something that has set this place apart. Even in hard times, it is important to keep hold of this core distinction, whatever it costs.
5 Have a sense of humor.
6 Design is not the narrow application of formal skills, it is a way of thinking.
7 Variety is the spice of life.
8 Institutions have a character, just like people do.
9 We’re all in the “understanding business.”
10 You are what you eat.
Click over to Design Observer as each of the 10 items has some good insight.
