A Chat With Twitter Master & Designer Calvin Lee

This week, I had a digital chat with Calvin Lee from Mayhem Studios.  If you’re on Twitter, than you probably already know Calvin.  Calvin is without a doubt one of the most helpful designers on Twitter.  You can always depend on Calvin for a re-tweet of an interesting article and occasionally a witty comment.  In this interview, I decided to stray away from my usual questions about design and instead ask Calvin questions about how he became one of the biggest design Twitterers out there.  I hope you enjoy this interview and when you’re done, don’t forget to follow Calvin on Twitter or any other social network that you subscribe to.
