Creative Inspirations bonus feature: Stefan G. Bucher

Published by | Friday, August 26th, 2011

lynda.com’s documentary team is pleased to announce an addition to the Creative Inspirations series: bonus features. Starting this week, we’ll begin to roll out a series of extras that were produced to enhance the viewing experience of our flagship documentary series.

After release, we often screen our films for a theatre audience and bring the person featured in the documentary to the screening to be interviewed on camera. The topics discussed are frequently derived from feedback we receive from our members. These bonus features put you in the front row, and let you become inspired all over again.

After the screening, Stefan G. Bucher answered audience questions during his interview with Terry Lee Stone.

This summer, lynda.com had a special screening of Stefan G. Bucher, Designer, Illustrator, and Writer in the Ahmanson Theatre at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA. After the lights came up, Stefan came up on stage to enthusiastic applause to be interviewed by Terry Lee Stone, a writer and creative strategist who teaches the business of design at Art Center. This lively discussion (which included audience Q&A) covers a wide range of topics and brings us up to date on Stefan’s most recent endeavors. Highlights include Stefan’s thoughts on choosing projects and (the question that’s on everyone’s mind) what’s next for the monsters! As usual, Stefan brought along his sharp wit and wonderful sense of humor.

The bonus feature can be found at the end of the table of contents on the documentary page: Stefan G. Bucher, Designer, Illustrator, and Writer.

The first time I walked the halls of our headquarters in Carpinteria, I was pleasantly surprised to come in contact with a pack of lynda.com monsters.

The monsters are the work of the amazing Stefan G. Bucher, the genius behind dailymonster.com and 344 Design in Los Angeles. lynda.com co-founder Bruce Heavin originally suggested that Stefan create four monsters to adorn the walls of our headquarters, but Stefan got inspired and created 13 for Bruce to pick from.

According to Stefan, once Bruce saw the selection of monsters, he decided to use them all. The monsters are displayed on a prominent wall at the office and lucky lynda.com folks get to see them every day. As you can see from the photo, Stefan’s installation is pretty cool, too.

Stefan has decided to let the lynda.com monsters out into the wild and posted each of them on his dailymonster.com blog. Go check them out:
