Hackster.io interviews designer Sophy Wong #Making #[email protected] @Hacksterio

Monica Houston recently interviewed Maker and designer Sophy Wong:

Sophy Wong is a Seattle-based maker whose work has appeared on Adafruit and in HackSpace Magazine, and you may know her iconic projects like the Selfie Bot and her Spacesuit. She stopped by Hackster’s Seattle office to chat about documenting projects, design thinking versus engineering, and her upcoming talks at Maker Faire.

You’re an amazing documenter. Did you learn to do that by writing tutorials for Adafruit and HackSpace?

I’m not an engineer. My background is in design, in graphic design. So I’ve always been interested in communicating through photography and print and web. I feel like that my background of graphic design helps me when I document my work, because I’m always thinking about how other people are going to understand what I’m doing, and how am I going to convey this concept in a way that they can get it in just six pages. Thinking like a designer helps me to not just figure out my projects, but also how to record them.

See the whole interview with Sophy on Hackster.io

Sophy Wong also has a new book out! You can find here.

Be sure to watch the video interview she did with Alex Glow below!
