Number 4: Mike Monteiro!
Mike Monteiro is back at the From Business to Buttons! He was absolutely incredible in 2015. This time we can´t even imagine what will happen. The best and the worst for sure!
Mike is probably the most outspoken person in design today. If you haven't heard or seen him before, you can start with a glance at his Twitter feed. The pinned tweet on top reads:
Never, ever, ever let them call you a “creative”. It’s a way to be disenfranchised. You are a designer. It’s not magic, it’s a trade.
And he doesn't shy away from politics either.
Hey @BarackObama, this is still your watch, man.
Mike writes and speaks frequently about the craft and business of design. He loves client services so much he wrote two books on the topic, "Design is a Job" and "You’re My Favorite Client".
He is one of the most appreciated speakers in the history of From Business to Buttons. He visited in 2015, and in 2017 he returns, this time to challenge the companies promising to change the world.
"Stand up! You are Vikings, dammit!", was one of his opening quotes the last time. What will he tell us this April?
