Someone told me about this Creative Mornings session with Mike Monteiro, and it is pure gold for learning about the business, specifically the legal/contract aspects of design. Highlight for me was the advice “Starting work without a contract is like putting on a condom after taking a home pregnancy test.”
“Our speaker at the March 2011 San Francisco, CreativeMornings (creativemornings.com) was Mike Monteiro, Design Director, and co-founder of Mule Design Studio. This event took place on March 25, 2011 and was sponsored by Happy Cog and Typekit (who also hosted the event at their office in the Mission).
The San Francisco chapter of Creative Mornings is run by Greg Storey.”
