Custom framer/owner of Downing Frames Clint Downing talks about:

Starting his business out of his apartment across the street from Pratt, where he went to art school; his collaborations with artists, and how "there isn't a place that we won't go…"; how he reconciles production failures in working on new designs with delivering products that meet Downing Frames' best-of-industry standards; how he's very satisfied being behind the scenes in the art world, largely because he and his company receive a lot of gratitude for their work from customers; what it's like interacting with clients, and their staff, onsite in their homes, from the sit-down introduction to the 'shakedown' he receives from the overprotective freight elevator operators and supers, but ultimately it's about coming to the clients as an expert, and being respectful rather than subservient.
