Dear Ben & Frank

Is there any type of design that you refuse to work on?

Question Submitted by Rus

Ben SaysI feel especially privileged so far in my short career that I feel the majority of the projects I’ve worked on were either fun or meaningful, and often both. Those are my main criteria for choosing to work for a company or on a specific project.

I don’t really want to start naming specifics, but there are things I am morally against and that I believe are detrimental to our society. I hope I don’t ever find myself in the situation of having to do these things in order to eat.


Frank SaysI never want to work on a project where the end result would be an annoyance to the audience. I hate having my time wasted and patience tested, so my general guideline is to try not to do those things to others.
