Interviews with Graphic Designers

http://www.myinkblog.com/2009/09/20/an-interview-with-graphic-designer-brian-hoff/
Can you talk a little about your design process?
My design process always starts out with a pencil and paper. I typically start mind-mapping to get keyword and imagery ideas flowing and then start rough sketches concepts and logotypes. Once I feel like I have a solid direction I want to pursue I then bring my ideas to the computers – the continues on to client feedback, changes, more feedback and changes, etc.

Sometimes it’s difficult to get started on a project, and brainstorm design ideas. How do you get inspired and stay motivated?

I stay inspired through many methods but being active in the design community is my biggest source of inspiration. I have thousands of well organized bookmarks and I use LitteSnapper for scrap booking inspiration.

With all the projects that you do, how do you manage to find time for everything?

I for one do not manage my time well at all… mainly because I work a lot, but at the end of the day I love what I do and love to work hard at it.

What are some of your favorite design blogs that you read?

Coming for a guy that subscribes to over 300+ I would have to say I Love Typography, Carsonified, and A List Apart. Also, Jacob Cass’ Just Creative Design and David Airey’s blog – two blogs which inspired me to start my own. I have always enjoy the perfect balance of personal and professional in both of their blogs

Ten commandments of good design

Looking outside of user interface design is essential for good UI –it provides new perspectives and poses difficult questions that sometimes make one’s head hurt. The work of Dieter Rams, best known for his work with Braun, is the stuff of legend in the industrial design community. Rams’ approach to design continues to inspire legions: Less but better.

Vitsoe, for whom Rams designed the path-breaking 606 Universal Shelving System has a page detailing Rams’ Ten Commandments of Good Design:

  1. Good design is innovative
  2. Good design makes a product useful
  3. Good design is aesthetic
  4. Good design helps a product be understood
  5. Good design is unobtrusive
  6. Good design is honest
  7. Good design is durable
  8. Good design is thorough to the last detail
  9. Good design is concerned with the environment
  10. Good design is as little design as possible

These are rules to live by.

Read the complete text of Rams’ Ten Commandments of Good Design.

It’s a short read and is accompanied by some gorgeous photographs of Rams’ creations.
