I'm probably a bit late on this news, but I just wanted to point out this interesting article by BusinessWeek who profiled some known and familiar faces to me. The list of 21 designers compiled by BusinessWeek identifies intelligent and innovative thinkers looking to shake things up in the business world. A special mention and congrats to Ré Dubhthaigh, co-founder of Radarstation (UK) and Quinn Chow, who currently works at my former workplace, 2nd Road (Australia). Great work guys!
