Last year the students were super sweet and really switched on, you guys did a great job of selecting a varied bunch of designers with different strengths. I was there right at the end and it was great to see their Wix portfolios taking shape!<strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> <h3><strong>H: You’ve traveled the world to build a global community what are some of the challenges you encountered in doing so? </strong></h3> <p>F: I&#8217;m struggling to answer this, it was too fun! I designed my job around everything I&#8217;m good at and nothing I&#8217;m bad at, so put me in a room with 500 strangers and I&#8217;m happy! I love meeting and connecting with designers, it’s fun and easy for me. The challenging thing would be to work and meet with people all the time – as always, we just need more time. Subtle cultural differences are super interesting but just listen and observe and then it&#8217;s fine.</p> <h3><strong>H: You are so good with people and giving them the right advice about their professional path. What are some of the burning issues creatives face in this industry and how does this color the counsel that you give?</strong></h3> <p>F: The top three are confidence, industry knowledge and business know-how. Starting with confidence: 100% of the people I meet struggle with &#8220;am I good enough,&#8221; and the answer is always YES! You just have to find your way and your own strengths, and not compare yourself to others. As for industry knowledge, that&#8217;s why I set up <a href="http://thedesignkids.org" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">thedesignkids.org </a>– a place where you can research everyone within this industry and learn what they do. And finally, for business know-how – I&#8217;m working on it! No one really has their act together, it is about having a great attitude, putting yourself out there and doing your best. The rest will follow.</p> <p><a href="https://www.wix.com/playground/program" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer"><img class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-557820" src="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/main-1-2-600x400.png" alt="Wix Design Playground" width="600" height="400" srcset="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/main-1-2-600x400.png 600w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/main-1-2-450x300.png 450w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/main-1-2.png 1170w" sizes="(max-width: 600px) 100vw, 600px" /></a></p> <h3><strong>F: In your opinion, how does the Playground bridge the gap between design education and a creative career? </strong></h3> <p>H: That question gets exactly to the point of why we started the Playground in the first place! While design education has come a long way since I was a student, I really believe that creatives need a solid professional core before venturing into the real world. Designers need to bridge the gap between what they learn in school and how they ultimately forge a career with skills such as client relations, communication, and the ability to market their talent. Programs like The Design Kids and what we are doing with the Playground are good examples of creative, non-traditional types of learning experience.</p> <h3><strong>F: During this program you share tons of knowledge on web design with the students &#8211; why is web design a crucial tool for any kind of designer?</strong></h3> <p>H: A strong understanding of digital imaging and presence is key! For a designer, knowing how to create a beautiful site and understanding how it is consumed will help them grow immensely in the creative world.</p> <h3><strong>F: What type of designers do you look for to work in your studio? What traits and skills do they need to be successful in tech?</strong></h3> <p>H: In my opinion a good designer is a good designer! Our studio has incredible design experts in product, 3D, branding, architecture, fashion, and visual experts &#8211; some of who have never received a formal design education. Our designers all bring inspiration and talent to the larger creative collective. Designers are like olive oil – especially in tech – they bind everything together! Our designers exist in every element of our products.

The challenges that Elsbeth must endure are traumatic, her father faces his own horrors, and their unique relationship keeps you invested. Communication, time spent together, and the love they show each other—or at times neglect to show—comes across beautifully thanks to Chater’s art. During their revenge quest, many battles take place without Dag and Elsbeth saying anything at all.</p> <p>Focusing on the art, seeing and reading each image, you can feel the fight scenes accelerating as you look at one panel and move to the next. Decelerating to study Chater’s art and its nuances, where each weapon begins to move, eventually landing damage, you feel the battle happening in slow motion.</p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-width="550" data-dnt="true"> <p lang="en" dir="ltr">Sword Daughter returns in SWORD DAUGHTER VOL.2: FOLDED METAL: <a href="https://t.co/eD1rvAF7Ch">https://t.co/eD1rvAF7Ch</a> <br />Father and daughter continue their epic quest for revenge against the ruthless Vikings.

The other day we spoke about his future as and his art.</p> <p><strong><a href="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/streetstuff.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-557793" src="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/streetstuff.jpg" alt="" width="5949" height="7733" srcset="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/streetstuff.jpg 5949w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/streetstuff-346x450.jpg 346w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/streetstuff-462x600.jpg 462w" sizes="(max-width: 5949px) 100vw, 5949px" /></a></strong><strong>You make prints do you consider yourself a traditional illustrator?</strong></p> <p>I use printmaking, which is a very traditional and old technique, but I often apply more contemporary ways of developing the illustrations to my process.

I feel that the idea of printing an actual plate with an illustration directly into a book, like it was done in the early days of bookmaking is somehow very pure and true.</p> <p><a href="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/IMG-0295.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-557794" src="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/IMG-0295.jpg" alt="" width="4279" height="5610" srcset="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/IMG-0295.jpg 4279w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/IMG-0295-343x450.jpg 343w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/IMG-0295-458x600.jpg 458w" sizes="(max-width: 4279px) 100vw, 4279px" /></a> <a href="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/drummer.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-557795" src="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/drummer.jpg" alt="" width="3838" height="4965" srcset="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/drummer.jpg 3838w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/drummer-348x450.jpg 348w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/drummer-464x600.jpg 464w" sizes="(max-width: 3838px) 100vw, 3838px" /></a><strong>Your prints tell stories of Brooklyn, where you now live. Tell me what they stories are about?</strong></p> <p>I think that due to gentrification, every day the neighborhoods in New York and in Brooklyn in particular become more and more the same. The subtle character of each different place gets thinner. And the daily situations that the inhabitants of these places find themselves in change too. In the area where I&#8217;ve been living for the past five years the authentic atmosphere is still visible. And the stories I tell are of people who exist in that atmosphere and create it.</p> <p><a href="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/deli.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-557796" src="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/deli.jpg" alt="" width="3850" height="5052" srcset="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/deli.jpg 3850w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/deli-343x450.jpg 343w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/deli-457x600.jpg 457w" sizes="(max-width: 3850px) 100vw, 3850px" /></a> <a href="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/church.jpg"><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-557797" src="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/church.jpg" alt="" width="3857" height="5037" srcset="https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/church.jpg 3857w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/church-345x450.jpg 345w, https://s22735.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/church-459x600.jpg 459w" sizes="(max-width: 3857px) 100vw, 3857px" /></a><strong>What do you want to achieve with your work?<br /> </strong>I want catch and preserve the spirit of a place using my work.</p> <p><strong>You made a very beautiful book about some odd characters.

It observes the characters I encountered in the city from a point of view of someone who doesn&#8217;t know what people look like. These characters are presented as some abstract creatures that wander around trying to fulfill their daily needs.
