Hosts Giselle Field of Wander Design Co. and Jen Davis of Jen Davis Design met on Facebook and quickly became biz (and designer) buddies. The branding world felt secretive, competitive, and sometimes really confusing, so their weekly chats were not only LIFE-GIVING but also very much needed in the midst of their crazy schedules. They realized that their honest, soul-chat-level convos could potentially help other brand designers—and thus, Better: The Brand Designer Podcast was born.
