Question Description

Complete one informational interview with a professional (design or non-design),

and then respond to all prompts listed below.

For the sake of both individual and public health, in-person interviews are no longer

permitted. Going forward, all informational interviews should be completed via

phone or video. Remote communication is the global norm these days so this

constraint is particularly timely. Technology also affords opportunity to reach

professionals across the world. Take advantage of this to begin establishing your

global network while avoiding isolation and maintaining social distance!

To facilitate your success, conducting interviews via email is highly discouraged.

Consider your interviewee, including the impact on their time, when soliciting advice.

It generally takes 8-10 pages of text to transcribe 20 minutes of dialogue—do not be

surprised if requests for thoughtful written responses are ignored by professionals.

1. Overview. Explicitly state the following:
