Excellent Friends Who Design

This show feels like I’m listening to my super smart and thoughtful friends who happen to be designers. Every week I learn how to be better at thinking about design but also I how to feel about designing. Its perfection.

Time to get back to business

When they said they were going to take a little well deserved break, that was understandable. Break time is over. Hopefully everyone is recharged and refreshed as their content and more so the interplay between them is great.

100% Fantastic!

I never leave reviews, but this time I had to. This has been one of the most helpful, interesting, and enjoyable podcasts I have ever listened to. The design work I do is not in exactly the same industry (I design cross stitch patterns), but so much of what they share is relevant to any type of design/creative work. Thank you so much for the wonderful podcast!
