Having just read Chris Brogan’s excellent blog on ‘No locks No Gates’ (link to blog) I was reminded of when I started my design business, KMiDigital, and the amount of people who said, “did you know such and such has a very similar company?” No I didn’t and to be honest I wasn’t really that bothered as this was MY company and MY ideas on how it would operate and function.
So with this in mind are all businesses the same, churning out the same dull things day after day or has individuality came to the top and entrepreneurs are now the ones setting the standard, or has this always been the case.
Just like some of the art work Joshua Davis (link to site) has produced using flash, who would have thought this possible 5 or 10 years ago? Or that Hillman Curtis would transcend from designer to filmmaker (link to site) or has he, it could be that they have both just taken their chosen medium to greater heights and if these guys can do this then why can’t the rest of us?
