Jonas Arleth: People pay 20 k to study and end up watching hours of free valuable futur lessons every week. I never studied and saved a bunch of money. But I don’t miss anything. I keep learning from people like you who are willing to put out their knowledge in new ways. And two minutes ago I realized something. You are one of my teachers and I go to your school ever week. So I want to treat you like one. From now on, you can expect money from me every month. \nThat’s my first task on my to do list for Monday.

LUKAS DG: Chris – blessed are you among women.
Vidit Agarwal: Logo crit sessions are just pure awesomeness! Love how carefully and gently you go for countless options. Screen out the bad ones. And voila! However, I really liked what you did with the mobilion logo but had this nagging sensation that all I did was put type in a box. It looked wonderful, but I know I'd feel guilty sending that to a client.

derFlorian: Would you recommend to put some branding-work for fictitious companies in your Portfolio to get your first Client? Or does that make you look like a bloody beginner? And if you put that kind of work in your Portfolio, do you just say that it is fictitious or do you act as if it was "normal" work?\nOh, and I see so many Companies with really Branding. Can I just send them an E-Mail, gently tell them that their Branding is bad and offer my Service?\nGreetings from Germany! :)
