File Under "This Makes Me Feel Better"

"Designers get pulled off projects and their ego is bruised. Feeling hurt is how they should feel. If their ego wasn’t bruised, they weren’t trying hard enough. Professionalism means they don’t show it, but if they are good designers, they care. And caring means feeling pain sometimes."

- Christina Wodtke

Many designers work alone in large corporate environment - just like I frequently do - they need to know that not every project will be continued or successful. The fact that one feels pain when a project fails is good - it means you are a professional who cares about your work!
