Aquent Webcast - Attributes of a Great Designer: a conversation with Debbie Millman

1,401 views

Published on

Debbie Millman, president of the Design Division at Sterling Brands and author of the book "How to Think Like a Great Graphic Designer," sits down with Aquent's Randy Ricker for an intimate discussion about what it takes to succeed as a graphic designer. The conversation centers on the distinction that being a great designer is about more than great design. Truly great designers share a number of attributes that set them apart from the pack. Success is driven by attitudes, approach and experience that go beyond aesthetics. Debbie talks candidly about what she has learned in her career, often by making mistakes, and shares how other designers can gain wisdom through their own mistakes.

In this Aquent-sponsored webcast, you can learn from Debbie's experience and perspective on:

Non-design skills that matter for designers
Understanding strategy
Creating client trust and salesmanship
Ideas for lifelong learning for designers
