Quotes

Massimo Vignelli: One thing which you have to learn; is never work for a bad client. Because from a bad client, the next one will be worse. So, you work for a good client, the next one will be better. No matter what. Even if you're hungry. Even if you're desperate. Never work for a bad client because it is a waste of time.
