We have yet to have a client come to KRD and say, “Here’s a project I’d like you to execute. And, by the way, spend whatever you need to on it.” Actually, who ever really says that?
But just as I’ve never been impressed when I see a woman dressed head-to-toe in the same designer’s clothes (actually, what catches my eye is the bag woman in our town who has the most creative style… amazing sense of proportion, color, pattern — someday I am going to ask her if I can photograph her), I love the challenge of delivering work that has a thoughtful, creative element to it.. that isn’t just plugging in expensive, “off-the-rack” technology or materials.
