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).
“Today we are joined by Stanley Hainsworth’s hair, and, by extension, Stanley Hainsworth himself.”
Stanley Hainsworth, if taken by his past works, could easily be described as a genius of design (take those stints creative-directing companies like Nike, Lego, and Starbucks for the past 20 years, for example). But when you add in his uncanny appearance, you know you must call him a mad genius! Not that he’s unpleasant, by any means. Stanley is in fact quite nice, and as it happens very forthcoming about his work.
What really makes this show shine was the interview took place about one month after Stanley Hainsworth left Starbucks to begin his own creative endeavor, Tether, which you can find out all about at www.tethercreate.com, and we kindly persuade Mr. Hainsworth to spill the proverbial beans on the project. Enjoy.
