I’m a big time a multi-tasker. Very female of me I guess. I don’t just design a logo. I design logos while eating a sandwich, flipping through five blogs, and talking on the phone. But my favorite thing to do while “working” is listen to interesting podcasts. I pretty much listen to anything to be honest but I really enjoy podcasts where I feel like I’m learning about the creative field. Below are my current fave creative podcasts.
Debbie Milman from the Design Observer interviews some of the most succesful people in Graphic Design, Branding, and New Media. This is great if you love the design world. She always inserts her own interesting anecdotes and is really good about pulling the background story from people.
This is a much more casual podcast by illustrator Sam Weber. He teaches at the School of Visual Arts in New York and interviews many fellow illustrators in the city. I like the casual tone of his interviews and the way he keeps it real about the struggles of having a creative career.
This an amazing creative business podcast from Design Sponge’s Grace Bonnie. She interviews many creatives in various fields and gives a lot of helpful tips and thoughts about starting your own creative business. It is good all around nuts and bolts information on the creative industry today.
Ok this is not a podcast but more like Ted Talks for the creative industry. Tina Roth Eisenberg of Swiss Miss created this series a few years back and it has since become a global entity. I often listen to them like podcasts while I’m sketching. Very inspiring.
This podcast is more for people who are interested in starting their own business. It’s not necessarily for creatives but Seth Godin has a unique outlook on going off on your own and gives sound advice to those who want to bypass the MBA education.
