Advice So Good You Could Swear By It: The Story of Good Fucking Design Advice
Wednesday, October 16, 2013
In September of 2010 GFDA was launched as a joke on whim. Before they knew it, Co-founders Brian Buirge and Jason Bacher were were plunged headfirst into business selling shirts and prints from the basement of their rental property. During the past three years they rose to C-List Internet Celebrity fame all while dividing their time between earning their MFAs, teaching courses part-time at Kent State University, maintaining the GFDA site, doing client work, and staying up all night packaging merchandise. Consequently, such a division of time results in lots of mistakes and fuck-ups and they’re eager to share those more than anything. As their favorite saying goes, “experience is that thing you get the moment after you need it.” They take great pride in showing the audience the dumbest things they’ve screwed up and how starting your own business, doing what you love, doesn’t require a business education, venture capital, or a whole lot of experience. It requires heart and a little bit of crazy (okay maybe a lot of crazy).
