I think I met Kate a few times at local (Omaha, Nebraska) AIGA events over a decade ago, but then she moved, and eventually wound up in Portland. I felt like she never really left though, as she has made quite the impression on the design world, and I kept seeing articles and posts about her and her projects – Obsessive Consumption, Daily Drawings (3,000 of them!), Credit Card drawings, and the like.
So, we speak of that, what you should be pursuing, graphic design classes, and more. Enjoy.
AIGA Minnesota’s Design Camp not only brought in the five 5 ‘main stage’ speakers (and a couple dozen Twin City speakers for breakout sessions), but also flew in the brutally honest design consultant that is Emily Cohen from New York (has she really not been on the show since 2011?). We talk about getting the right work, her Evolve conference, and why we need to find a specialty.
