In the journey of creativity that takes the shape of “designer”, these 4 colleagues from different points of the world offer up the fun that usually escapes the day-to-day of this chosen vocation. Their insights are both appropriate and useful but their ability to showcase them all in a witty and humorous way is certain to bring a smile. Theirs is a working partnership to not envy but emulate. Clearly the language of design is global, but this show confirms that the peaks and valleys of the job know no boarders. More designers need to be honest with themselves and seek out additional relationships that fuel fun… while still assisting with their creative path. This is a great place to start.

Real Conversations

I have not been listening that long and am new to the industry so frankly, had no idea who these people were (literally found this doing a search on Apple podcasts...sorry guys!). Imagine my surprise when I realized I am literally a customer of each of the hosts and have literally thought to myself “geez this product is so darn clever!” at least once for each of them! So to hear that the same brain that made the brilliant product XYZ also had stupid ideas, or gets anxious, or struggles with getting a project wrapped up and how they found work-a-rounds is pretty helpful to me as a new, self taught, isolated artist. I also find that although the conversations can go off on tangents and get somewhat convoluted at times, they always bring it back at the end with take away s that are worth the listen - even above and beyond the benefit of feeling part of a community of folks that struggle with the same issues, even when they are very successful. They already feel dangerously close to old dear friends after a few months of listening so good thing I have no idea what they look like because I could see myself going up to them and just starting to complain about my teenager if I ran into them on the street. Keep up the great work you Rock-Doggies!
