About the Author

Mike Monteiro is the co-founder and design director of Mule Design, an interactive design studio whose work has been called “delightfully hostile” by The New Yorker. In early 2011, he gave a Creative Mornings talk entitled “F— You, Pay Me” that not only uplifted the downtrodden the world over, but fueled his first book, Design Is a Job. In 2014, Mike won the net awards Talk of the Year for “How Designers Destroyed the World,” a screed about designers taking responsibility for their work. In the same year, he released his second book, You’re My Favorite Client, a succinct guide to hiring and working with designers. He can be heard weekly as the co-host of Let’s Make Mistakes. None of the terms Mike has coined are printable on a family website.
