Quote: “I was exhibiting at New Designers and this guy just came up to me and said “I need that designer.” He found me at the bar, in a green skirt, blue Mohawk and a Walls Ice Cream Tee- shirt, I said of course, come in on Monday. I phoned up my mate who I’d just moved into a house with, he’d just finished college, he was at RCA two years before me, and I said “you know we’d talked about setting up a company someday, well we’ve got out first client, they are coming in on Monday!”[image source]
