For years, on both this podcast and the old Be A Design Cast, we’ve been promoting Drew Davies for the AIGA National Board. Well, a couple years ago, he made it (listeners know he’s been on both of our podcasts a number of times, and even since being on the board). Well, besides being what I assume is the first person from Omaha to make this honor, he went another step further, and decided to just be President of the whole thing (or, well, co-President at least). Regardless, this is great for the organization, and great for Omaha and the design community here.
So, we bring Drew back to the show to discuss. Then we discuss all the great things his company, Oxide Design Co., has been up to recently.
And yes, we’ll be recapping from the AIGA design conference in Minneapolis in October, so we hope to see you there. And since we do play favorites around here, we will be rooting for another person from Omaha, Cate White, to win this Command X thing!
We’ll be back in two weeks with the crew of Good Fucking Design Advice.
This is the last of our HOW Live shows for the year. Well, sort of. I did a few other recordings while there for a new project we plan to start up soon, so you may here a little more from the guests we spoke to, although in a different format. Until then, we bring back Debbie Millman.
We mostly speak about dealing with rejection and being President of AIGA for three years.
I also need to thank Nate Voss for co-hosting this, as well as a couple others at HOW, so, thanks Nate!
We will be back in two weeks with current AIGA National Co-President, Drew Davies.
HOW Live may have ended over a month ago, but we still have two recordings left!
This week we bring in Jenn & Ken Vosocky O’Grady to talk about their third book – Design Currency: Understand, define, and promote the value of your design work.
With another appearance of co-host Nate Voss, we also bring back the student tip.
