    You are more than your job title — with Sarabeth Berk

    You are more than your job title — with Sarabeth Berk

    Sarabeth Berk is a TEDx speaker and professional identity researcher. She is reshaping how we think about the workforce by shifting and expanding our definition of professional identity. What does that mean exactly? It means that you should not be limited to either/or titles (e.g. specialists vs. generalist). And that there is a third option: hybrid.
    But does that help or hurt your marketing efforts? Will potential clients and employers be intrigued or confused?
    In this episode, Sarabeth and Chris Do define and debate the merits of hybrid professional identities. Spoiler alert: Chris is not immediately sold on the idea.
    Sarabeth argues that what we do professionally is difficult to categorize into simply one box. Many of us find fulfillment and excel at the intersection of several disciplines. Just as our names are unique to us, our titles and what we do follow suit.
    However, the trick is knowing how to communicate that intersection clearly.
    If you struggle with the decision of specializing versus generalizing or find yourself living somewhere in the middle then you will enjoy this conversation.

    Creativity is not magic — with Joey Cofone

    Creativity is not magic — with Joey Cofone

    Do you have to suffer to build character? We get philosophical in part two of our conversation with Baronfig founder and author Joey Cofone. He and Chris continue their discussion about The Laws of Creativity and delve into the role failure—and sometimes delusion—plays in the story of success.
    We like how Joey explains the concept of creativity: like a musical instrument, creativity is a practical trade that you can learn, develop, and improve over time.

    If you have listened to our podcast long enough then you may have heard Joey’s voice before. Way back in episode 57. We are pleased to welcome him back to the show to share what he’s been working on for a long time: defining the laws of creativity.
    In part one of this conversation, Joey and Chris share some of their most poignant memories of creativity. They discuss the importance of remaining curious, following your instinct, and why what makes you weird also makes you wonderful.

Entertaining and Empowering

I’ve been listening since almost the beginning and it’s interesting how the style of the podcast has changed over the years. Chris Do and crew are clearly on a mission to help the design community and it shows. Great guests, great conversations, and even some free design business instruction here and there. I make sure to tune in every week!
