Small businesses can be good businesses

In reference to your Comment on business and creativity (DW 25 June), you’re making the same old mistake. You’re still equating big design consultancies with “good business” – why can’t small be good business too?

If you want your design consultancy to turn over £5m and employ 60 people you then have to pay all those mortgages, wear a grey double breasted suit, accept dodgy work to hit monthly “projections” and never have a life.

I’d rather not, thanks.
