Mike Monteiro: Fuck You. Pay Me.

Mike Monteiro, Design Director, and co-founder of Mule Design Studio at San Francisco, CreativeMornings.

A year old but still a must watch (re watch), its gold for those dealing with clients. Also check out the corresponding post.

When a client asks you how much something costs, every “ummmm” out of your mouth is thousands of dollars just vanished. If YOU don’t think you’re worth the money, your client certainly isn’t going to.

If they want something different, they will let you know. Don’t negotiate with yourself on behalf of the client. Don’t convince yourself they won’t be all right with something. GO FIND OUT! The worst that can happen is you won’t get the job.

  1. Awesome presentation. Really interesting that Everybody I know working freelance in design had the same problems at least once… (bringing a new designer in the game during a contract, project evolve too much during a project, etc.).
