    Balancing the Creative Ego - Pitstop Episode #2

    The Ego. Defined as a person's sense of self-esteem or self-importance. Your ego is a part of who you are and, when it's balanced, it can be a good thing too. For this Pitstop, Nick and Jordan welcome Jay Master (aka @live_design_co ) to talk about balancing our egos as creatives. When can it get in the way, and when it can be your secret weapon!

    Not Another Trends Podcast - Pitstop Episode #1

    Our very first Pitstop episode! These Pitstops allow us to tackle smaller topics, welcome unique special guests and just catch up with you, and each other, more often!

    Each year new graphic design trends explode onto the scene. We wanted to break down the whole idea of "Trends" and how we should react as visual communicators. We discuss:

    1. Are they important?

    2. How do they start?

    3. Why they can be problematic?

    4 How best to approach or use a trend.

This. Is. Good.

I’ve been in the creative world for a little over a year now so I’m always looking for ways to grow and to be challenged. After coming across the Creative Course Podcast, I was super taken back by how helpful this podcast has been.

It’s such a great listen.
