I went to a really great seminar tonight on Financial Management for Designers focused on new small businesses and freelancers. It was a great presentation by Errol Gerson, who teaches this to students at ArtCenter. Thanks to him and the folks at AIGA for putting it on. (Why didn't they teach us things like that in my design school? Sure seems like a better way to take care of our math credits than that Apple IIe graphics programming course we all took... but I digress...) I had to snap a couple pictures and chuckle as I sat down, though. Like most meetings of designers, it was a room of people in grey and black. Didn't we wear black as kids in some desire to be a little different from everyone else?
Oh, and what did I wear? A black shirt.
