I just watched a great video of graphic designer, James Victore, at a 99% Conference. You can find it on YouTube here: “James Victore: Your Work Is a Gift” . If you don’t know James’ work, he’s an edgy graphic designer making people think. He highlights his work for the Department of Probation for New York City and it’s really REAL. As he tells it, he wanted to make, with his design work, an impression of a stern, but cool, father. The work is really amazing and catchy. However, I think the most important thing he says is that your work is a gift. How many of us really feel that way, I wonder? Do you consider your work a gift?
