    Episode 280 - Brad Stoneking - Piedmont Brand Co. "Metal band to design dad"

    My guest this week is Brade Stoneking. Owner and Designer at Piedmont Brand Co. 

    During this episode we dive into his journey from metal band guy to design dad. Including a conversation about why pivoting to working for himself was the toughest time in his career so far. We also talk about the design job he had where the walls were crumbling around him and what he did. 

    Brad also shares a story about a project where he had the opportunity to brand the town that he grew up in. Pretty rad!

    Brad is a riot to chat with and this episode was so much fun, I know you'll dig it.

    Episode 279 - Jake Paul - Formula 1 / Red Bull Racing / Manchester United

    My guest this week is Jake Paul. A self-taught Graphic Designer from the UK. 

    During this episode we talk about how he was pursuing a career in law or banking before making a hard right turn and becoming a graphic designer. 

    Jake shares some of his wins, his fails, and what his parents' response was when he told them he didn't want to pursue law or banking anymore. He also tells us about his time working for some of the most well-known teams out there like Formula 1, Red Bull Racing, and Manchester United. 

    We then dive into a story about a banner project that went sideways, the jump he made from a shoe company to an agency and why it was the toughest time in his career. Oh, and about a super steep learning curve for a presentation he needed to make to Red bull. 

    Had a great time in this episode. *NOTE* There is a tiny audio delay in this one between our back and forth.
