@JoelECarlson – Hope everyone is having a fabulous Friday! Lets start the Twitterview of @KatrinLoss to get going.
@katrinloss – Hi @JoelECarlson. How are you today?
Q – #1 So @KatrinLoss, tell us, where did you grown up and what were some of the life steps that you took to get you where you are today?
A: I’ve been fortunate to live in 2 of the most beautiful cities – Mpls and Hamburg – while growing up, thx to my parents.
Lots of detours: degrees in Business, English and Graphic Design; stints at Panasonic, Best Buy, Barnes & Noble, and 3M among others.
When I finally enrolled @MCAD my plan was to study photography… and fell in love with design.
Q – #2 I’m getting better today. Thx! :) @KatrinLoss – So what kind of work do you do now, and what kind of projects have you done?
A: In a nutshell: I help people remember their favorite brand.
I develop and lead all aspects of the creative process from inception, concept development and design execution, …
… project management, to final production. Every client and project is unique – that’s why I like about being a designer.
“what” not “why” :D
Q – #3 Rookie Twitterviewer. :) So how have you been to adapting to the various Social Media tools that have been developed?
@katrinloss - You’re cheating on me tweeting with other people while I talk…
@JoelECarlson – I’m a “double-Tweeter”! :) It’s not okay to multi-Tweet/task? More focus on @KatrinLoss then. :)
@katrinloss – Someone had to call you out on it :D
A: I’m not sure I’ve adapted to social media tools. I use them + keep wondering… What’s next? How will it evolve? Mutate?
Q – #4 Interesting reasoning! Well who are some people that you follow on Twitter that you’ve benefited from connecting with?
A: Twitter enabled me to connect with other designers and #AIGA members all over the country/world.
I like the diversity: finding out about new things+events, learning tips&tricks, seeing what other ppl are up to or just to humor me.
And it was nice meeting you IRL ;)
Q – #5 Lets shift gears and go to your FAVS – Favorite: restaurant, store, summer activity and gadget?
A: Restaurant: Don’t really have one… just a favorite dish/dessert at places like Lurcat, Lucia’s, MASA, Punch, Café Latte, etc.
You’re more likely to find me at a coffee shop (than a restaurant). The best latté? A toss up between Spyhouse and Rustica. Store:
Any bookstore – brick&mortar and online – and any place that sells music.
Summer activity: Keep me near any body of water and I’m happy. If it involves a camp fire even better.
Q – #6 FAVE Gadget? Also, to end today – what thought or mantra would you like to share with everyone?
A: *sorry distracted by sth work related* Gadget: I’ve always been a huge fan of all of kinds of electronics…
If you’re looking at the sun, you won’t see a shadow.” – Helen Keller
