The Reflex Blue Show with Nate Voss and Donovan Beery, Episode 19: Von Glitschka on Logo Lounge and Illustrator CS4October 8th, 2008 | by Nate Voss
Von Glitschka (of Vonster, Art Backwash, the FBI, Illustration Class, and author of Crumble.Crackle.Burn. and the forthcoming Drip.Dot.Swirl.) returns to the show for the first time (on the new show)! Von was in town to judge the local design competition and sat down with us again. Originally this show would have been Episode 20, with Episode 19 devoted to the newly announced Adobe CS4 — except that halfway through Von drops the bomb on us that he was heavily involved in many of the updated features that make us purr about Illustrator CS4. We also cover Logo Lounge (which he judged — another bomb) and how there are designers out there who actually don’t get something in the book when they enter. (we have never entered, BTW.) Also joining us is special guest Steve RDQlus Gordon.
In our first show since the last show, we take one single listener question and stretch it into 40 minutes of awesomeness with our friend Adam Nielsen, whom I am certain would like me to mention you can find him at the soon-to-be-newly launched Good-Twin.com. But the show’s not about Adam, it’s about 36 Point’s recommendations for Fall Reading for Graphic Designers (even Superstar® Drew Davies phones his in), broken down into some odd and only loosely-followed guidelines. It’s a very fun show, done in a single take, and it caps with a DVD Review of Speed Racer, which does not fare well under our steely gaze.

Mountain Dew. Greenlabelart.com. Steve’s book (a little). My book (more than is healthy). Art Backwash. The Olympics. London 2012. Death Race vs. North by Northwest. This show runs the gamut on just about every possible graphic design end-of-summer topic we could possibly come up with. Steve and Donovan ambush me on my own illustrative-children’s-novella, I do my best to answer questions without coming across as a total jerk. Hopefully I cannot has FAIL on that task. The last 120 seconds are a mind-blowing ratta-tat-tat of topic transitions and teases that must be heard to be believed. Also I think we’re going to do more movie reviews, too. Thanks for listening, as always

Hello internets! We’d like to take a moment to welcome ourselves back to you! We welcome social-networking genius and web 2.0 savant David Kadavy back to the show to chat for a pleasant 34 minutes about social networking and entrepreneurial instinct of designers. We also spend a solid 5 to 10 minutes with the most pointless Mountain Dew Taste Test of all time (Not Halo Mt. Dew = FAIL).
