Interview with Erik Spiekermann
In an October 31st interview that appeared in PingMag, Erik Spiekermann discussed issues of relevance to graphic designers. He mentioned that the industry is becoming more production-oriented with less collaboration, tighter deadlines, and more reliance on technology.
Spiekermann states that he always begins his designs by sketching.
He believes that "cheap design" software or "cheap designers" that are available tend to bring more prestige to professionals in the industry with formal education and training.
