Episode 4 was recorded, once again, with the generosity of Concordia University and The Professor Paul Berkbigler, to who at this point we owe pretty much our entire show. Hot on the heels of Stefan Bucher’s appearance at the school a few weeks ago, none other than Jim Sherraden of Hatch Show Print fame was in town and we had the incredible opportunity to sit down with him for breakfast and a show (separately, unfortunately) to talk about Hatch — past, present, and future. Jim turned out to be one of the kindest people I’ve ever met, and was very gracious with his time and his stories. Hatch continues to be the best place to get a poster on the whole planet, so if you haven’t faxed them your love for a while, I whole-heartedly suggest it.
On this week’s episode of The Reflex Blue Show, Donovan, David Kadavy and I discuss — at length — Adobe’s new Font Folio Education Essentials, and scarcely anything else. Type fans grab a cold one, but type-snobs are advised to skip the majority of the recording due to the vast levels of typographic ignorance on display here. We do manage a fairly thorough discussion of font-pricing and value, as well as cover the AFFEE from top to bottom.
Stefan Bucher is the captain of creative passion. You want to feel inspired about the potential of your own work? You want to feel guilty about being burnt out? Hang out with Stefan for a day. On this, our second episode, we did just that. Stefan was, surprisingly, in Nebraska for several days painting a monster mural for Concordia University, and they were gracious enough to spare a few minutes of his time for us; during which we recorded this show and shot video for the short film Stefan Bucher: Monster Maker, where he created the monster we are putting up for auction. Hope you enjoy the show and we’ll see you next week!
Welcome to the first episode of The Reflex Blue Show with Nate Voss and Donovan Beery! On this week’s episode, we welcome our good friend Steve Hartman of Creativille. Steve is a member of the AIGA Board of Directors and works a great deal with design education for K-12 when he’s not pumping out pure genius at his day job. It also helps that he’s one hell of a nice guy.
Next week’s scheduled episode will feature Stefan Bucher, author of 100 Days of Monsters (baring any airport or travel shenanigans!)
Just heard our first preview of the new music for The Reflex Blue Show, and let me just say our minds are blown.
Fans of the old music — mixed by me in 2005, then again in 2006, in Garage Band using their freebie basic tracks — may be temporarily taken aback by the new tracks, but only long enough for them to hear the jump in quality that can only be described as light years beyond the original music. So out are the stock baselines, stock drums, stock wakka-wakkas and in is the real music.
If you want to hear more of Steve’s amazing DJ talents, you can head to his Dustlab Myspace page. I’m a big fan of Tokens and Headphones.
