Douglas Riccardi: I had the great fortune of working at two studios where there were no boundaries, no labels, and no set job descriptions. These were M&Co. and Sottsass Associati in Milan. Not only has this has made me really enjoy working in groups, but it taught me to see my contributions as part of a bigger whole. It also taught me to appreciate the way other design professionals approach the same project, but through the lens of their discipline. I think this has made me a more well-rounded designer, has opened my eyes beyeond simply “graphic design” and has led me to seek clients with larger project scopes.
