I was depressed to read Marc Phelps trotting out the old cliches about poor creativity from in-house teams (Letters, DW 2 October). I’m sure the guys at Apple will be pulling their socks up and trying harder. There are good in-house teams and not-so-good inhouse teams. Just like there are good consultancies and not-so-good consultancies. Marc seems to lump all in-house designers together, but they went to the same colleges as consultancy designers and nearly all I’ve worked with have consultancy experience – which is not removed upon going in-house. I’ve crossed over several times and can assure you that the main issues are the same.
