Hey everyone! Today we have an interview with Adelle Charles of Fuel Your Creativity! Adelle is awesome, I’ve known her for some time now and have been an avid reader of her blog since the day I found it. I hope you enjoy the interview! :)
Jon: Hi Adelle, can you please tell our readers a little about yourself, where you’re from, what you do?
Jon: Have you studied anything in particular or are you self-taught? What’s your background and how did you get started?
Jon: Please tell us, what are the tools you simply couldn’t live without? (software, web-app, etc…)
Jon: What would be your single best tip for people looking into a graphic design career?
Jon: Do you have any idols or mentors in the graphic design field? People you look up to and that inspire you, who are they and why do you like them and their work?
- Collis Ta’eed – I really love what Collis has done with all of his sites, especially psdtuts.com and vectortuts.com, he always seems to have big projects in the works for envato.com and I admire his entrepreneurship.
- Chuck Anderson – (nopattern.com) He really inspires me to get more into mixed medias in design. Mixing photography, illustrations and Photoshop seem to be the current trend in design.
- Jeff Finley – Been reading a lot about him lately and I’m now hooked on his blog (gomediazine.com). His website and company are kick-ass and I love what they are doing. Go Media has branched out and offers design help via Twitter, which is totally insane and awesome at the same time!
Jon: You already have over 8 years of design experience, but where do you see yourself in, let’s say another 5 years from now? Do you have some sort of exit strategy, or you can see yourself designing and working in this field for years to come?
Jon: The infamous question: Mac or PC?
Jon: Now the question I have to ask everyone I interview: What’s in your iPod? :)
Jon: Thank you so much Adelle or taking the time to do this interview, really appreciated!:)
Jon: I hope you enjoyed this interview with Adelle. We will have more interviews soon, if you know someone who you would like us to interview, drop us a line.
