It was a Thursday, I put the phone down. I’d been speaking to Mr. Porter about how I was thinking I might do something of my own, after having worked for years as a consultant turning other brands around. They’d just said why don’t you come in on Tuesday!
I came off the phone thinking ok, I only have a few days now to come up with an idea. What am I going to reference. The word “reference” made me stop. I like that word. I looked around the room, at my records, at the shelves stacked with books and magazines, the pictures on the walls and prints sitting waiting to be framed and thought, well this is it, this is my reference library. This where I’ll find my inspiration. The Reference Library.
