Under the hood of Coudal Partners

5 Aug 2009

Design Glut has a great interview with Jim Coudal, of the one and only Coudal Partners. They’ve got a unique business model for a “design firm”, but it works for them. And it’s easy to see why, with some of the gems that Jim dropped during the interview.

Everything’s not all unicorns and rainbows, and sometimes it’s a little scary, but we are a lot happier than we were in 2001. And there’s something to be said for that.

When you think to yourself, “In 18 months I’m going to start my crocheted beer coaster company,” the problem with that sentence is the 18 months. What you’re really saying is, “I’m afraid.” Do it now. If you bankrupt a company before you’re 25, that’s like a badge of honor! Get out there.
