"Simple rules for succeeding in the design profession:  1) Design creatively, like it matters, because it does; 2) Take care of your clients well, it pays big dividends; 3) Value your fellow professionals; they are your loyal comrades; 4) Deal honestly always with everyone, there is no other way; 5) Be creative in your ideas, persistent in effort, and take time to have fun along the way."
