10q | 10a by squareFACTOR
Once again I found something great through Michael Surtees. He tweeted about an interview with Etsy’s Interaction Design Director Randy Hunt. 10q | 10a was realized by squareFACTOR, a design studio from Florida. The concept is pretty simple, it shows you a person infront of a camera, he/she gets 10 questions and in the best case the person gives back 10 answers.
But the format really convinces me. You get a great insight into the persons beliefs, thoughts and motivations. It’s plain and simple, like good design. Via the interview with Randy Hunt you get answers to questions I really would ask a designer myself, like “When and why he wanted to become a designer”, or “Who inspired/inspires him”, and “How he is working”, just digital or analog.
This first part shows the first five questions/answers. I am looking forward to the next 5 and to the next interviews. I hope squareFACTOR stick to designers. I would love to get more insights in designer’s minds. And they should put up a simple page where they collect the interviews and give a short introduction.
And if you, squareFACTOR, are looking for some new interview partners, I really would like to hear/see the first five people from that list. Most of them are in New York as well.
