Great design requires more than a great designer — it requires a team.
Advice for Young Designers
Christian Beck

Well said Christian! I totally agree with that part and the thoughts that led to the statement. Unfortunately as many things in life it is quite easy to forget it sometimes and revert back to the self-importance state.

Do you have any advice on how to make the concept of that statement a part of the Designer’s personality?

I personally try to keep apprentice like mindset that puts me in learning mode. It helps me reduce the self-importance feeling to a minimum.

However, I could definitely use an advice from a more experienced designer as yourself.
