Donovan & Green
Designer > Sr. Designer
New York, NY

Perhaps, the thing I remembered most about working at Donovan and Green was the mentorship and encouragement Michael Donovan and Nancye Green provided. It was not an explicit mentoring relationship but one certainly felt "it" in the office. They were demanding bosses and they were never short on expressing what they wanted. Even when things were not going right, a day's hard work ended often by the kitchen, beer in hand with Michael spinning stories about Massimo Vignelli and fly-fishing.

I've learned that skills, talent and hard work alone are not enough to sustain a career and a business. One has to learn how to work smart. Michael and Nancye were always two-steps ahead of the client.
