Nuggets that I got from the interviewees:
Visual Narrative + Text = Visual Storytelling
Interview Mr. Kurtz (Artist&Author):
-Visual Storytelling is also the subtle things we weave into the process.
-How do I make a book that just ins't a book?
-Handwriting is an imprint of who you are.
-He uses pencil (as his medium) because of the grittiness.
Interview Ms. Butler (Artist):
-I think our culture is underestimation the power of image.
-It takes very little for us to read what something is.
-I want them to project themselves onto it, just like I project myself into it.
-Be brutally honest with yourself first. Why am I doing this? What does this really mean to me? What is it really going to say?
Interview Ms. Lupi (Information Designer):
-What is the story that needs to come out?
-Collecting Data is a form of meditation (on a postcard)
Interview Mr. Sahre (Graphic Designer):
-The work establishes a point of view, to a certain degree.
-I was taught that being a graphic designer is a calling, it's who you are.
-A graphic designer doesn't have a captive audience like a filmmaker.
-You have to create a situation that tells a story but also attracting attention.
Digital illustration is a way for me to express myself.
