Drive down a busy city street, and you spot them—those brightly colored, inflatable figures waving frantically outside car dealerships and fast food places, beckoning you with deals on loans and pizza. Designer Jamie Wolfond (we profiled him last year) has taken the idea and turned it on its head.

Today we kick off our series of interviews with young architects and designers by speaking with Jamie Wolfond. Jamie is finishing up his last year at RISD and already has a substantial CV to his name, with stints in film and in design studios to his credit. He has also designed some intriguing objects himself, which were what initially brought him to our attention. We wanted to find out what makes a young designer tick, his thoughts on design and his vision of the future. What follows is our Q-and-A with an emerging young talent about his inspirations, plans and why design is like looking for your keys.
We plan to bring you more interviews with young architects and designers down the line, so keep checking here regularly.
