Last week, I shared a few designers with whom I'm interested in interviewing. My top choice was Philipp Dettmer of Kurzgesagt, a team of designers/animators that make motion graphics pieces about scientific, historical, and current topics. I sent an email through the group's website, and a few days ago, I received a reply from Philipp, who expressed his willingness to participate in an interview. I've since told him of my availability (factoring in the time zone differences, of course), and I'm waiting to hear back. By next week, I hope to secure a date and time, and possibly even talk with them, depending on how quickly things move. I'll also begin working on a poster that's meant to advertise my presentation and highlight my hero of choice.
