Crowdsource Designer Interview #9

Our Crowdsource Designer interviews here on Springleap give us an opportunity to dig deep and get feedback from designers and illustrators from around the world on their experience of crowdsourced design platforms. We shoot them some questions, they respond, and you get the lowdown – everyone wins! In today’s interview, we put the spotlight on one of the most prolific and highly-awarded designers in the crowdsource game – the legendary Sebasebi! Who are you? I’m Sebastian Govino Where do you live? I live in Rosario, Argentina Describe yourself – likes/ dislikes. Well… I like anything that involves a creative process, painting, digital design, some woodworking as a hobby, play trumpet and sailing (we have a fantastic river here in Rosario). And soccer! Of course. I love the outdoor life – I don’t like the city life, and try to stay away from “chaos”. In big cities there’s no respect for others.

  Which crowdsource platforms do you use? I use DBH, Threadless, La Fraise, Pampling and Springleap of course. How did you hear about them? Some years ago I produced clothes, and looking for inspiration, I found these sites, and slowly began to produce designs, which is what I really like. What do you love about crowdsourcing contests / what don’t you? I love the concept of putting a work of art on a shirt. I think if you can carry thousands of songs or books in your bags, why not wear a work of art on a shirt? Many people have the opportunity to have a “painting” on a shirt now – art is not only exhibited in a gallery.

  Has it become a sustainable source of income? Sometimes it is more difficult, but generally, yes. What inspires you? Ecology, the innocence of the children – they do all magic! Music, the universe… Describe your design style? It’s difficult – I like surrealism, a lot. But… I don’t know… What design tools / software do you use? Everything always starts the same way: with a pencil and paper, then afterward I use Photoshop and Illustrator. Did you study design? No, I didn’t. Which are your favorite designers and styles? I like the style of Robson Borges, Radiomode, Vcalahan, and many more… and the style of Matihole.

  What category of projects are your favorites? (e.g: packaging) Shirts, always. What has been your favorite brief so far? Mmmm…I have none in particular.   There it is ladies and gents – some insights from one of the biggest names in crowdsource design, and a longstanding favourite here on Springleap. Thanks for reading – and thanks to Sebasebi for the interview!
