About the author
After working at various design practices full-time and freelance and starting his design firm, David McFadden saw a gap in the industry. In 1984, he created an expansive hub for architects and hiring firms to sync up, complete projects, and mutually benefit. That hub was Consulting For Architects Inc., which enabled architects to find meaningful design work while freeing hiring firms from tedious hiring-firing cycles. This departure from the traditional, more rigid style of employer-employee relations was just what the industry needed – flexibility and adaptation to current work circumstances. David, Founder, and CEO has successfully advised his clients and staff through the trials and tribulations of four recessions – the early '80s, early '90s, early 2000s, the Great Recession, the pandemic, and the current slowdown caused by inflation and high interest rates.
