The Company We Keep

February 20, 2012

“Work only for people you like. A sense of commonality is essential. Without that, disaster.”
— Milton Glaser

“If each of us hires people who are smaller than we are, we shall become a company of dwarfs. But if each of us hires people bigger than we are, [we] will become a company of giants.”
—David Ogilvy

 

I have really, really creative friends. I also have a lot of incredibly creative acquaintances. And teachers, and role models, and mentors. Watching their work develop and their talent grow inspires and challenges me to be more thoughtful, more diligent, and more committed to my own creativity.

From my classes to Morris & Mitchell to my best friends, I see wonderful people with great ideas at work every day. If we are the company we keep, I’m thankful for the inspiration.
