If you are thinking about starting a design agency, I think, the biggest recommendation I have (besides all the prep work) is to make sure you pick a partner in crime that balances you out. We push each other to do the best work we can, respect each other, evenly distribute responsibilities, and have a clear line of communication. Starting a design studio is hard work, but being able to create with your best friend (as a full-time job) makes everything worth it.
