Hartmut Esslinger – A Fine Line
The last time we mentioned A Fine Line was when we took a look a Hartmut Esslinger’s interview by Guy Kawasaki.
This time I have a little treat to share with you. The founder of Frog Design himself sharing a few words of wisdom probably extracted from his book: A Fine Line (there it is again!).
I like his opening line:
Business must understand what they will achieve with designers. And Designers have to understand they have to deliver substantial change, going to the root to deliver something else. (edited!)
The next one is also a keeper:
Design is not a democracy, design is about quality.
Check out the rest of Hartmut’s thoughts in the video after the jump.
A few wonderful points at the end on managing designers, and how organizations need to adjust to designers not the other way around, especially if you are serious in treating talents like talents.
