    So far we have been mostly designing and developing the products/platform/brand experience. For me the focus has been entirely on designing things on a regular basis. Having Rogie, Justin, Alicja and Hannah all doing their part makes my job feel much more focused.

    Oh man — To be honest my inspiration has come from a lot of the street art around Los Angeles lately. I LOVE the super fat overlapping lettering you see painted on overpasses and random sidewalks. I also love anything and everything by Herb Lubalin, Tony Dispigna, Ken Barber, The Quiet Life, Vintage movie posters, Psychedelic poster art and Dad's Paper Signs.

    Justin and Rogie first approached me to help them with a lettering treatment for the logo. I've been freelancing on my own for years but I've definitely gotten tired of working alone. We all just clicked right away and as they described the project I found myself eager to help with more than just the logo design. I wanted to help with pretty much everything. So I decided to go out on a limb and let them know that I wanted to help make Super Team a world dominating force (for good) and they (fairly quickly) said yes please!

    Super Team is really just a group of people who like working together. There is also no way that any one of us could have come up with this project on our own. We can do more together than apart! It's been a blast.

    I have zero children and my output doesn't hold a candle to the productivity of Rogie/Justin/Alicja — They are amazing.

    It depends on what kind of designer you are. I started out by learning HTML and building websites. In high school I got an internship at a local web design and development company where I learned to program in ASP/Access/Flash/PHP/etc. I can definitely hack my way through a Shopify theme tweak if I need. However, I don't consider this a necessity to being a good designer to be honest. I removes a barrier for certain personal projects (launching a small product line/etc) but otherwise it doesn't contribute to my design directly.

    In short — If you're really passionate about something don't let other people's requirements hold you back. Be curious, be passionate and go for it.

    Please don't dance (if you're a designer).
