Work principles

  1. 1. "Buy the ticket, take the ride."

    Hunter S. Thompson

    First of all you must know that, when you start working on a project, you're taking the ride. You are deciding to spend your time and energy on it. So you've got to be sure that you believe in it, that you will have the time to work on it properly and that you will be willing to go the extra mile if necessary. If you don't, well, just don't buy the ticket.

  2. 2. "Write drunk; edit sober."

    Ernest Hemingway

    Then you have to get drunk on the idea. You must know the topic, the audience and all the product details. Start writing all the content possibilities, where does the user come from? why? where is it going to? why? what do you want him to do? why? is someone else doing the same thing? how? why? Write all down.

  3. 3. "Think about it deeply. Then forget it.
    And an idea will jump up in your face."

    Don Draper

    Now take a break, empty your mind and start editing. Among all those possibilities there's one. One simple enough to define your product with one line. One persuasive enough to make that button become and actual call to action. You must find it. It won't be easy, but what if the next "just do it" is there, waiting for you.

Clients

In a connected world, an interesting project can come up from anywhere. I set no boundaries on industry, sector, region or size. I like working with startups, global reaching companies or international organizations indifferently as long as I fall for the idea.

What about you? Did you fall for your project?
