This publication started with a curiosity in the sensibility one's of approach to graphic design via the creation of an image in the form of an illustration, drawing, object, and so on. It is interesting to observe that when someone fundamentally defines oneself as a graphic designer and produces necessary images for an output, such images sometimes go beyond their primary function of being the composition of a page, and become the tool, method, and identity of the graphic designer.
(...) I chose the format of an interview as a way to look into these various approaches. This way, there exist the interviewee (the creator of the image) and the interviewer (the viewer of the image) for each interview that readers can appreciate the image (together) as an audience. The images of workflow requested along with the interview are also included at the middle of this book. The workflow images could be a software capture file, a picture of the tool used to create a shape, or a screen capture of folders containing image tools. Any images not exposed to their final output were accepted. There was no limitation upon the interview and image requests so that my focus was to maximize the responses the interviewers sent. Indeed, what are these images for and where are they going?
