Lauren: What’s a surprising and/or delightful experience you’ve had recently?
DAD: I was thinking about the movie Vanilla Sky. On the list of greatest movies ever made, Vanilla Sky doesn’t even appear. Nor does its predecessor Open Your Eyes (although it’s considerably better than the remake it inspired). There’s a line in Vanilla Sky that Jason Lee, in a role as Tom Cruise’s best friend, utters. It’s a sort of refrain throughout the movie“The sweet is never as sweet without the sour.”
Luke and Bryce Bryce:
Hello, We are currently students at George Fox University, and interns for AIGA Portland. We are reaching out because we’re trying to put together an article detailing how different studios are keeping their practice going during Covid-19 to show how other designers might be able to do the same. We were hoping you might be able to take a few minutes and give some insight on this. We plan on taking all of the responses and submitting them online as a resource for other designers in the community to reference.
Have a great day
Carson: Is it OK to start a sentence with And?
John: Any chance you guys are hiring?
DAD: When we started Studio DAD we weren’t called Studio DAD. We were called Dean Donohoe. And we were adamant that we wanted to be and remain a small studio. Just a writer and a designer. But we also wanted to work with some of our favorite creatives that we had met over many years in the agency world. We’ve been lucky to do just that. And we continue to work with freelancers, small studios and the like. So, no, we aren’t hiring. But we’re always looking for good people to work with. And we’re not changing our name again. At least not this year.
