This is super exciting. I have had the chance to interview and feature someone I have been a fan of for quite sometime – someone clever, creative, talented, and funny. And who I haven’t met in person (yet).
A bit of background: I walk by The Breakfast Club quite often on the way to work and I often take pictures of the signs (“A Boards”) outside and post them on Instagram – because they are funny and creative. See below for some of the boards I took pictures of:
I noticed the Twitter name of the guy who puts them up – @TheABoardDude – and said to myself, “I need to interview this guy”
So, I contacted him on Twitter, showed him my Instagram feed (to prove I am a fan) and asked if I could interview him (I would email him questions and he would email me back the answers). I knew he was a smart guy, and it was further proven by his answer:
@topleftdesign I’d be happy to answer any questions you throw at me. Shall I just message you my email address?
