This is a fun interview with Kevin Cheng about comics, villains, heroes, and design. I totally liked the characterization of villains and heroes in the design process:
So true! Go check out the rest of the interview, especially the comic Kevin drew of the interview while being interviewed. Very cute.
Thinking about the design process, characterize the villain. What gets in the way of innovation?
KC: Tunnel vision. Getting stuck in this bubble where you start cycling around internally so much that you forget what you are building for.
