Hi-Res is a one-on-one podcast with creatives in the Philadelphia advertising community about the experiences that have helped shape their careers and influence their work.
S10E7 – Fabiola Lara
Fabiola Lara joins the show for a conversation about moving to Philly during the pandemic, creating Giphy stickers for LatinX Heritage Month, pushing herself to cultivate a different creative style and discovering her resilience during the pandemic.
S10E6 – Jeremy Friend
Jeremy Friend joins the show for a conversation about how he pursued a career in design after serving in the military, why he pushes against having a specific "style," exploring new programs to bring your work to life, and why "done" is not better than "perfect."

Jené Adams joins the show for a conversation about starting her own YouTube channel, why she wants to help designers find inspiration, bringing animation to her work and creating art to recognize African American trailblazers who don’t get as much recognition during Black History Month, (and getting to meet one of them in person).

Nilé Livingston joins the show for a conversation about curiosity and her interest in understanding the world and translating it into something people can relate to. She also discusses creating public art at the beginning of the pandemic, capturing how overwhelming 2020 was in her work and her love of Nina Simone. Plus, Nilé tries to explain NFTs to Ryan.

Crystal Folkes joins the show for a conversation about why she credits her mother for her love of UX, co-founding and launching Uplift — an online directory of Black owned businesses and entrepreneurs in Philly, finding ways to work animation into her work, avoiding movie trailers with spoilers and the new hobby she's adopted during the pandemic.
S10E2 – Perry Shall
Perry Shall joins the show for a conversation about designing the art for the new Green Day single, the process becoming part of the aesthetic, making his work feel timeless and his massive T-shirt collection. Plus, another round of Hi-Res Trivia!
