PP: what was said during the interview
So I interviewed with Abby and I think it went pretty well. We mainly looked at my print portfolio and talked about my work. She said that overall my identity looked professional, but there were just some minor details that needed to be refined. (such as spacing / kerning) She mentioned "Dustin Maberry" as someone for me to contact, she said he would love my identity. So I added him on behance and facebook, hopefully will be in contact with him. When she turned my business card upside down, she asked what if people read my name as "RA-SA" and then I jokingly told her that, that was my ultra ego. Then we talked about how great it would be to brand myself in 2 parts, "Ra-Sa" as my crazy weird process self and then "Sa-Ra" as my refined design self. I definitely liked this idea and I think it fits into my personality. We also talked about BikeWalkKC, and had a mutual friend, Rachel. She mentioned that she was at the Cookbook release party and I was pleased to tell her that I designed the cover of that zine. Overall it went really well and it was nice to hear advice from an outside perspective.
