UX Book Club Philly: Design is a Job

For our last me

eting of the year, UX Book Club will discuss Design is a Job by Mike Monteiro on Monday, December 10th, 2012. Doors open at 6pm and the discussion starts at 6:30pm. Mike will be joining us via Skype for the discussion.

If you haven't read it yet, this book is chock full of logistical advice such as presenting your work, eliciting valuable client feedback, writing good contracts, and getting paid on time for your work. This is all the stuff we never learned in school and have had to learn by trial and error on the job.

You do not have to finish or even read the book to attend. The more the merrier!

Some say the clothes make the man. Others say it’s opinions. Co-founder of Mule, Mike likes to have a bet both ways. His 2012 book, Design is a Job, was a love letter to hard work, self-awareness, and the importance of a good tailor.

Mike cultivates his reputation around being serious about design, human rights, a damn fine joke, and the Phillies. His philosophy of supportive antagonism helps Mule create great internal and external projects. He has given talks about the responsibility of designers in client relationships at conferences such as CreativeMornings, TYPO, and An Event Apart.

Mike received his BA in Fine Art from the Tyler School of Art at Temple University, and his MFA in Graphic Design from University of Texas, Austin.
