    Ep. 179: Creature World’s Danny Cole is Bridging the Gap Between Reality and Divinity

    Creature World’s Danny Cole began drawing the Creature in a dusty church basement in youth. He had his first public exhibition before graduating from high school. His work has since evolved from graffiti and paintings to include immersive art experiences, NFTs, clothing capsules, and adventures in virtual reality. All in an effort to bring us together in a shared version of a more divine reality.

    Ep. 177: Baronfig Founder Joey Cofone on the Laws of Creativity

    Baronfig founder, Joey Cofone, grew up in New Jersey learning to speak his mind from his strong, single, adoptive mother. A systems thinker, his lens on the world has always been adept at zooming way in and way out with an alarming self-awareness. This has served him well, both in designing “tools for thinkers” and in recognizing the patterns of invention for his book, The Laws of Creativity.

Clever awesomeness

The Clever Podcast is a design revelation. Since discovering it a few months ago (aplogies for the late signup ladies) I have been addicted to the sincere, witty, detailed interviews on some of the world's best designers.

As a designer, it is both inspiring and super refreshing to hear design held on such a pedestal and for all the world to see. I particularly like the personal anectdotes and insights into the designer's lives and career milestones.

Looking forward to more. Keep up the awesomeness!

Cheers,

Nathan.
