Markus Schmeiduch: I think the classic client/agency concept is broken.

When we started Usersnap we wanted to help people in Web Development and Design to focus on the more important stuff in life than handling endless Email support conversations. That’s why we are starting a new series in our blog, called “Picture My Work”. In this series we ask designers and web devs to give us a little sneak peak into their daily work routines, their values, their tools and what they like / dislike about their work.

This is the third post in this series and we asked Markus Schmeiduch, who founded Flying, an app that brings back the glamour of the Pan Am era, for his set of answers. Follow him on Twitter: @smeidu or see his website.
