Team

Andy Kopietz

Principal / Sr. Designer

Andy Kopietz is principal of Good Done Daily. With over 10 years of experience in visual communication, his leadership has engaged dozens of businesses in creating more integrated brand experiences.

From 2012-2015, he served as Director of Design at D:hive, a storefront welcome center located in Detroit. D:hive’s disruptive approach to connecting residents to housing, jobs, experiential city tours, and coaching in entrepreneurship galvanized thousands of visitors, small businesses, and community organizers. With the support of its staff, D:hive’s success thrived on meaningful storytelling through the design of print matter, maps, pop-up retail spaces, and brand identities for its programs.

As a graduate and volunteer of Build Institute, a Detroit entrepreneurship program, Andy is an adviser to small business owners who wish to bolster a more successful approach to visual communication. His lectures for organizations like Main Street Alabama and Open City have focused on design as a persuasive tool for fostering civic engagement and creative models of placemaking throughout the U.S.

Randall Bruder

Designer / Developer

Randall Bruder joined the Good Done Daily team in 2014, after graduating from the College for Creatives Studies in Detroit. He has a simple career goal: make cool things. And, he gets to do that at Good Done Daily.

In the past, he has worked with Andy on many projects for D:hive, from lo-fi tear off posters, to high-tech interactive tourist mapping systems. He planned a design scavenger hunt utilizing Detroit's People Mover. He designed a typeface, then made it available exclusively as letterpress wood type. He made a ridiculous data visualization book with his roommate, and somehow got it on For Print Only. He's one of the founding members of the Detroit Space Program. And, he invented the word Rescienanthrotology.

He approaches design with a sense of play. Through a rigorous process of divergent and differential exploration, built on a foundation of research and ethnography, unexpected and creative design solutions arise. But, you have to have fun with it.
