Humility is essential to doing our best work. If we are always students of our craft, we are always making ourselves available to evolve. “Experience” does not equal “expert”, despite having a monogrammed portfolio or a blue checkbox next to your Twitter handle.

Through the lens of vulnerability of a career’s journey inclusive of early success, and the resulting effects on his design + personal growth, join Justin Dauer as he talks through how the human connection must always lead in evolving ourselves as designers, our work, and our career's journey. We can’t settle for anything less: you, your work, and those on the receiving end of what you create, *deserve* nothing less.
