Interview with Paul Lowe (Sweet Paul)
Prop Stylist and Editor in chief of ‘Sweet Paul Magazine’.
January 22, 2012
|Paul Lowe is one of the food stylists that I admire most, his work is impecable and full of creativity. Paul also puts together a Magazine called Sweet Paul, with around 150 pages, full joy, beautiful pictures and a very clean & nice design. I got inspiration from people like Sweet Paul.
Even if Paul is not a graphic designer, his work is very close to mine, since we both deal with different ways to convey a message and to bring the message in a very graphic way, Paul takes care of having the best color matches, elements and technique to make the best of a subject, being decoration or photography. like my other colleagues I asked Paul a couple of questions. Being himself very interesting I am sharing his answers here. Paul was kind enough to participate on the interview.
1- Where do you work and what do you do?
Being organized is very important, start planning early and work with amazing people.
3- Where do you find inspiration?
4- What do you think makes someone an Art Director, a Senior or Junior Graphic Designer?
It’s all about experience. You can have great ideas but without experience its hard to put them into life.
5- What has been the best way to find good clients for you?
I have an agent that helps me with that matter. www.bigleo.com
6- Which Social Media tools will you recommend for designer interaction?
7- What do you think is the best way to deal with an unpleasant customer, or a late payment?
8- What do you think is the hardest thing in the industry right now?
Cut backs and that everyone all of a sudden is a photographer. Just because your phone takes ok images does not mean that you have to use them. Clients are getting cheep and shooting stuff with their phones…horror!
