If I ever run a web design shop, I would hire my boss to be my consultant if I could afford to pay her. Her strength is that she could sell my design (not just mine, but other designers as well) way better than I could. I often say that design speaks for itself, yet my projects wouldn’t fly if I just let them up to the clients to figure out on their own. Not sure if it is because I have been working with her all these years or she is just so good at it that she could pick up my intention and explain it like she had been involved in my design thinking. I guess that’s why she’s my boss.
