    Hi Florian,
    My name is Ugne and I am a Graphic Design student at FIT. I have been given an assignment for my Professional Writing class to conduct an informational interview, and since I really admire your work, I was wondering if i could ask you a few questions concerning the design industry. It wouldn’t take long (5-6 questions), and it could be done either in person or via email, whichever is more convenient to you.

    Thank you in advance - looking forward to hearing from you.

    -Ugne

    Last weekend I went to a cocktail party. It was a fun night as parties go, but it was extraordinary in another way. Largely because of the gentle disruption provoked by 17 little red decals, set in Helvetica and glued to our glasses. This was good design in action.

    The lab is a place for the projects that used to go sight unseen. It’s not a collection of links that point somewhere else without any reflection. It’s an attempt to close the feed reader and let the brain meander with the purpose to get lost on our own little island.
