currently your favorite project/piece of work and why?
My current favorite pieces of
work come from
Áron Jancsó. He's only been in design school
for 1 year!
Well if it's a project that I
created at work, I would have to go with this one:
Lots of fun making that one.
What is your
design or development tool of choice?
I used to prefer Illustrator
but I'm beginning to like Photoshop better.
of death would you prefer and why?
Well I would like to go out
without pain like a gas leak but I am also down for
something a bit more heroic, like jumping on a grenade to
save fellow buds.
What is your
favorite movie and why?
Pulp Fiction. I love the
dialog in Tarantino films. The original Predator is a near
second because of the scene where Jesse the Body Ventura
gets killed and the guys cut down a forest with bullets
trying to kill the Predator:
believe a formal education is beneficial for the type of
work that you do?
I certainly do. Not only did I
get a lot of attention from my great professors, I feel that
the additional, non design classes (bowling and vegetable
production) helped round me out as a designer. I don't want
to be pigeon-holed into only being good at one design
theory. Absorbing non designing experiences helps broaden my
expectations and abilities.
What is a
typical day at work like?
Well, I make graphics for a TV
show that help illustrate the topic at hand. It's very
stressful and many times I only have 5-10 minutes to pump
out difficult graphics that are requested by people in a
different state. The communication can be poor at times. I
work with a lot of people that enjoy if not love design and
they have a good mix of design theories. The commute is the
worst part, I sit in my car for on average 2 hours a day.
Thank you satellite radio!
