Doug Bartow was extremely helpful in painting a picture of what it is like in the design world. One thing I enjoyed hearing about is the work you are able to do in a small firm compared to a larger firm. A larger firm there are more rules and guidelines to follow whereas in a smaller firm you have more freedom in what you can do. In a designers head, creative freedom is one thing that is valued a lot. As an advertising major, I value you this information as well. I definitely look forward to seeking a job in a smaller company where I will have more opportunities to grow as a professional. I also enjoyed listening to him discuss how he picks his clients and companies to work with. The fact that he makes very careful choices makes it clear that he truly cares about his work.
