Well it's weird to introduce myself, but here it goes... I'm Dan Button and I'm the guy behind Hero of Switzerland. I started HoS after being creatively frustrated in a job, and in a bid to relieve that frustration I roped two friends into meeting me in a pub every week to draw together. I then organised and ran our shows, blogs and projects until we became the entity we are today. Below I answer some of my own questions that I wrote for others...
HoS / What do you do with yourself all day?
DB / Well, I'm a Design Director for music and entertainment agency called FRUKT but my day basically consists of looking after a lovely team of designers and art directing on loads of different projects. My evenings consist of Netflix or trying to think of the next funny project or show for HoS.
HoS / What has been your strangest job/commission?
DB / I storyboarded an advert for a takeaway company whereby Anthony Worrell-Thompson was kidnapped by a bunch of disillusioned chefs.
HoS / Tell us 2 facts and 1 lie about you.
DB / I played for Leicester City FC Youth team.
DB / Kasabian supported my band, Homespun back in the day in Leicester.
DB / I won a 'Cute Baby of the Year' in The Leicester Mercury newspaper in 1981.
HoS / If no one was watching, what would you do?
DB / I do loads of stuff when no one is looking so maybe you just need to watch me more closely.
HoS / Inappropriate is...?
DB / Funny, if it's a fart. Never trust anyone who doesn't find flatulence funny.
