Awesome podcast for creatives and designers

I’ve been listening to this podcast for the last couple of days, and I’m hooked! I feel like I’m hanging out with a really cool gang, that knows a lot about their stuff, and that are also quite funny as a bonus!
Need to keep on listening to the other episodes, and hopefully I’ll be up to date when season 2 drops!
Great work guys!

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!
