Takeaways

  • Enterprise design work is more about understanding people and maturity levels and way less about the actual design work.
  • “A good client is one with whom you can work for three years or more, with several workstreams in each account and sustain that.” - Anthony
  • Protecting what you consider is vital, such as cultural management decisions, which are made to ensure that the company's workforce number remains constant rather than to make money.
  • It's beneficial for designers working in agencies to have the experience of knowing what it's like to work at their clients' companies.
