The Creative South Podcast focuses on the “people” behind the design. The best way for us to do that is to talk to people and listen to them share their stories. Not necessarily the stories you hear from the stage, but ones you get when you actually have a conversation with someone. We want to have conversations not only with the presenters and people hosting workshops, but the vendors and attendees. We also want to talk to other creative people, not just the designers, illustrators, and photographers, but the developers, writers, musicians, comedians, chefs and anyone else that uses their creative talent. It's not about being from the South, that's just where we live!

Today on the Creative South Podcast, we’re continuing our conversation with the team from Blind and the Futur, with their Digital Director, Ben Burns. Ben and I chat about how he went from studying design and working in the industry, to being a narcotics officer and then eventually back to design, how reaching out to Chris Do to say thank you when he was struggling with his own freelance business eventually led to him ending up working at Blind and The Futur & much more, all right after this.
You can find out more about Ben on Twitter @mrbenburns_ and be sure to check out the links in the show notes for more ways to keep up with him. You can keep up with the podcast on Twitter and Facebook @CreativeSoPod, and follow Creative South on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram @CreativeSouthGA or over at CreativeSouth.com, and I’m @jfrostholm on Dribbble, Twitter, and Instagram.
