Download to read offline

Everywhere I look companies are hiring designers! Two hundred over here! A thousand over here! We need a lot of them and we need them fast. Finally! Companies have come to understand the importance of design in building successful products and services. Isn’t that great?

Mike gave his awesome keynote at WebVisions Portland on Thurs., May 19, 2016.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Mike runs Mule Design Studio. It’s a nice place. They do good, quality work. He makes paintings with words on them. He picks fights with the Tea Party on Twitter. He lives in San Francisco with Erika Hall, his son Henry, and his dog Rupert.
