Portland Funbook #3

1. What year did you graduate? 
(I just graduated in )Fall 2008.  

2. What type of work are/have you been doing?
I recently finished the print campaign for the videogame, Spore. Currently I'm doing a long-term job with Leopold Ketel & Partners. They're awesome.

3. Where have you worked? Please share any design work experiences that might be relevant and helpful to current students.
I started with Plazm and then started doing my own stuff with clients. I worked for Weiden + Kennedy for a while. Tank Design, NYC for a while. and a bunch of little freelance gigs all over.

4. What projects are you working on currently?
Working on wine labels, pitch-books, and other stuff at Leopold Ketel & Partners. Also, some self-initiated projects: Portland Funbook #3, Nacho Zine, Heroquest ReDo. I think it's really important to have your own things going to keep fresh and interested in design. Cuz paid work can be awesome. It can be a lot of fun but not always.

5. What recommendations do you have for any current students and/or students graduating?
Fall deeply in love with every project and opprotunity. Or make your own projects if nothing awesome is coming your way for a while. If you're only a little enthusiastic about design you should quit because it's way too competitive. I'm serious. There's a whole generation that have been using Illustrator and Dreamweaver since 2nd grade sneaking up on us. And they will crush us all.

6. Would you share a link to a site or a book that you frequent for inspiration?
My homepage is set to ffffound.com — so much great inspiration and it changes every 5 minutes! And Super Holland Design is the best design book I've seen in a long time lots of inspiration and I always find something new when I open it.

Thanks Drew!
