I'm always fascinated by technological advances that mix more and more the real world with the virtual world. Whether through the already common resources such as augmented reality or the recent Oculus Rift.
Dr. Stefan Bucher joined the discussion on DesignChat on July 20th, 2011. Like the previous guest, Robert Petrick, he is a judge for the STA's Archive 11 show and will travel to Chicago to participate in all events.
Stefan reveals that part of the motivation in using inkblots for The Daily Monster is that it is difficult for him to start drawings because he immediately self-censors his work. ”I'm really good at finishing, not so good at starting.”
He claims to have screwed up his first job at W+K by working hard, and not understanding the nature of the agency. ”Sometimes there are situations that are not right for you, and it's ok to walk away from them and it doesn't diminish you as a person.”
Stefan's favorite font is his own hand-writing, that he recently had converted to a typeface. ”It's Bucher Book, bitches!" When asked what he would be if his current career pat didn't exist, he answered, “If I wasn't a designer, I'd be… hopefully a musician but maybe a vagrant.”
