Video: Frank Chimero, “Cut My Teeth. Wash My Hands.”

Many thanks to Frank Chimero, who, on the tails of being donned an Art Directors Club Young Gun, gave a talk last month in the Branding & Innovation Lab to a record-breaking audience.

A retrospective on the first five years of running a design practice and working for yourself. A talk about starting up a studio right after finishing school, loving it, then hating it, then loving it again, then hating it again, then hovering your hand over that big red button. Includes: one lawsuit, one mugging at gunpoint, one low ceiling, one smashed-in window, one euphoric high, and one guy falling off the roof. Oh, and vectors. Happy endings guaranteed, maybe!
