Useful Quotes That Stuck with Me See all

Be prouder of the things you make, than the checks you cash

—Mike Monteiro, in Design is a Job


Have integrity. Money isn’t everything. Specially not, if that money comes from doing something you’re not proud of.

Mike Monteiro has long been a shining star of work ethics for me. This quote has directly influenced my saying no to design and consulting gigs, on several occasions, and I’m proud I did.

It’s also helped shaped my professional values, and made me clear on what kind of work I am willing to do, and for whom.
