No other design podcast compares!!! 🌟

Look no further for a genuinely honest, relatable, funny and informative design podcast. A friend recommended Honest Deisgners and it’s the main podcast I listen to now! I’m just starting out in the world of illustration and this podcast has been invaluable. The gang are almost like free mentors, they even turn tips on mundane file organisation into hilarious listening. Essential listening for creative. Cannot recommend any more 💓 keep going!

Comparing

This was another incredibly show! Like everyone I also compare myself to others. I’ve just started with my journey in March this year and at the moment exploring character design .... I now make a point of not following other character designers .... instead I will browse and save inspiration in a digital inspiration folder to go to when I get stuck 👌🏻 .... you made me buy Austin Kleon’s books 🤣🤣🤣

Love the show!!! Highlight of my week! Keep them coming !
