36 Point is a blogging network for designers powered by dreams, mountain dew, and people like you. It started in 2008 as a vehicle for The Reflex Blue Show, one of the best podcasts covering the graphic design industry, and later grew to include 1PT.Rule (a webcomic), reviews, and other forms of amazing stuff.

What have people said
about 36 Point?

“[The 12 best graphic design podcasts] Now in its ninth season, with 163 episodes for you to work through, it’s featured a huge selection of guests over the years…”

Joe Nicklo – 10/24/16

“Conversational, funny, informative, and at times a little non sequitur…”

Duffy & Partners – 7/15/13

“You gotta follow these radio hoodlums @36Point

James Victore – 7/6/12

“There are a lot of interesting, truly curious people in the world, but the guys at The Reflex Blue Show take curiosity and the art of the interview to a whole other level.”

Dyana Valentine – 8/9/11

“This is no stuffy talk show! These guys bring a great sense of humor to the podcast and really seem to enjoy what they are doing. Nate and Donovan know their stuff too. Their questions and discussions with the guests are well researched and well thought out. They tackle important subjects such as fonts, AIGA, portfolios, internships, music, pop culture, environmental design, presenting your work and so much more.”

Jake Van Ness – 7/20/11

“The pleasure and the privilege was mine as I discussed “Sketchbook” on the industry’s favorite podcast, The Reflex Blue Show.”

Timothy O’Donnell – 4/3/09

“The Reflex Blue is one of the nations leading design focused podcasts. The creators Nate Voss and Donovan Beery have a down to earth and engaging style that makes any subject interesting.”

Justin Ahrens of Rule29 – 3/22/09


“I don’t have to tell you about 36point.com, do I? I love these guys… their podcasts have been a must since the Be A Design Cast days.”

Dan Reynolds of TypeOff – 11/17/08

“You guys had the best questions I’ve ever gotten. I was deeply impressed that you did research, and actually knew things about us (but not the really skanky stuff). Thanks for having me on your show. It was a highlight of my trip. And thanks for the hard work keeping design and designers out there to the rest of the world.”

Sean Adams of AdamsMorioka – 6/26/08

“Nate and Donovan are a little nuts, so this is a really different radio interview from [Design Matters with Debbie Millman]. The Reflex Blue Show is as close as designers will come to Morning Zoo-type radio shows, and it’s actually pretty great. They know what they’re doing. Check it out if you’ve got the time.”

Stefan Bucher of 344 – 3/12/08

“Two renegade bloggers from Be A Design Group have gone rogue, creating their own foray into the design webosphere, and 36point.com means business.”

QUIPPED by Jason A. Tselentis – 3/5/08


“[The Reflex Blue Show is] not like it’s NPR with Terry Gross or anything, but I was still a little nervous. In the end, I had a great time. Anyone can do a podcast with enough technology at their disposal, but Nate and Donovan are doing something that adds to the graphic design industry. These two guys from Omaha are shaping and enhancing the design community…and having fun doing it.”

Steve Hartman of Creativille – 3/5/08
