Question for the designers: Do you work better independently or in a collaborative setting? Most designers I know are open to meetings and brainstorming, but when it comes to getting down to the actual work, they prefer to be on their own. That’s why I found it interesting that two print pieces in this week’s “Hot Off the Press” are not only designed by a pair of people – but they’re REALLY close. The sticker Boba Cruz ordered to use as a label on its tea cups is a joint effort between Boba Cruz owner Daniel Wyatt and his fiancée, Judy Nguyen. And Kris Loew recently started a toy business, Poketti Plushies with a Pocket, with her daughter, “Cuteness Control Officer” Sydney. Together they designed the greeting card below, which fits inside the pocket of their bunny plush.
Now, be honest: Could you work with a family member?
