I recently received a call from a young designer who I met when she was in art school. I reviewed her portfolio and several years later at a local graphic design group meeting, she reintroduced herself and thanked me for being kind and helpful in that review. She became an avid reader of my articles on the design business and while telling me on that phone call about a job from hell, she said she needed to “borrow (my) bastardness.“
Apparently she thought I was tough in client negotiations and thought she was being too timid with a no-win situation from which she needed to expel herself. I laughed and told her it wasn’t that I was a bastard to clients – I just knew how to face difficult situations.
