VIDEO: F*ck You. Pay Me.

2011/03 Mike Monteiro | F*ck You. Pay Me. from SanFrancisco/CreativeMornings on Vimeo.

Great, inspiring talk by Mike Monterio about working with contracts. He has his lawyer present with him at the talk, which is helpful.

What I find inspirational is not really the idea of using contracts (legal stuff, but absolutely necessary), but the idea that a designer should have confidence in their place in a client/designer relationship. Designers too often assume the role of the “bottom”, and they don’t need to.
