    In this episode we hear from Alistair McCready, founder of Monolith, a typographic design practice based out of Auckland, New Zealand. Alistair speaks with co-hosts Frankie Young and Matt Leach about about what type designers are like and the momentum you need when designing type.

    It’s a fascinating and wide ranging chat, covering everything from awards to embracing place and how ‘where you are’ feeds into the work.

Their chat took us places you wouldn’t usually get in a design podcast. It’s a great conversation recorded at The Design Conference in 2023.

    We’re back and beyond excited to share this fascinating conversation between Jasmin, CEO of Innocean Australia and Founder of Fck the Cupcakes, and Kevin from TheSumOf — friend of the podcast and branding expert.

    Listen in as they talk the culture of conferences, commercialising creativity and the silent war between design and advertising departments. Ultimately, the episode is about breaking down barriers, having more valuable exchanges and creating a willingness to learn.

    And of course, a big thank you to Matt for setting us up with our guests from The Design Conference 2023.

The best work alongside podcast for those that work in isolation- I really have a better sense of the design industry and community after trawling through these episodes- good work and good yarns.
