During our group conversation today, I came to the conclusion that not only do I want to interview graphic designers, who have done design work for local businesses, but I would also like to hear from local business owners about how they feel the graphic design work is important for their business. I will be reaching out to a few local favorites, that I feel have successful design, to see if they will be willing to answer a couple questions for my article.
I already have a couple designers who agreed to let me interview them, and these are the questions I have formulated so far-
For Local Business Owners:
Response to Todd's Ideas:
Todd coming into our class and talking about his process for writing his articles really helped me more clearly understand how I want to go about my own article. Todd is a very detail oriented person, and it shows in everything that he does. Including his process of researching his topics. He really goes the extra mile to gain a deeper understanding of what he is writing about.
For my research article so far, things are progressing. I am talking to a current MIAD student who recently became the art director for a local brewery in Milwaukee, and I am still shaping questions for an interview with her. I also have plans to reach out to another MIAD alumni that I know works at a local Branding/Advertising agency based in Bayview (that I previously mentioned in my analysis of Professional websites) They have done plenty of identity design for local businesses in Milwaukee like Belair & Fixture Pizza for example.
