Someone’s Simon Manchipp on selling ‘weird’ ideas, how to balance managing with designing, the worst piece of work he ever did and why abusive blog commenters are harming the design industry

Someone’s Simon Manchipp recently took part in a Young Creative Chevrolet event at London Metropolitan University chaired by CR’s Patrick Burgoyne. The audience questions prompted some interesting comments on a variety of topics including having to ‘let people go’, how to balance the demands of managing and designing in a studio, how to sell ‘weird’ work to clients and what the worst piece of work Manchipp had ever done would be. He also had some interesting things to say about commenters on design blogs and their effect on the industry
