Season 2 PLEASE

Season 2 PLEASE!!!! Graduating design school at Suffolk University in spring 2020 and student president of ASID @ SU!! You inspire me each day as I walk through Boston Common to my design courses. You’re so real (& between us bc I work at a firm you know that doing supersedes a diploma.. I know you’d take an interview for your college required job if they stand out.). I’m lucky enough to attend university but understand that others can’t.. and also I have learned 150% more from my boss/mentor than design school. Please keep GROWING!!!! Must add that I found you from Ivy (the most amazing invention on this universe). Continue to season 2 xoxoxo!!!

BETTER than any design book/class

I just started listening to this podcast and absolutely love it! If you are starting a design biz, Kristen is your go-to girl. She is incredibly knowledgeable, engaging, talented, authentic and inspirational. I have purchased more than a handful of books on starting a design Co and none of them have truly given me as much relevant content as Kristen does in this podcast. You won’t be disappointed!
