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!
If you have suggestions for guests or questions about the show, please reach out to us on Twitter @creativesopod or @jfrostholm, or shoot us an email at jason at creativesouth dot com. #Hugnecks
This week on the Creative South Podcast I’m talking with artist, designer, and Creative South Alumnus Lydia Kuekes. Lydia and I chat about sticking with graphic design after being rejected twice from her college program, why she went back for her masters degree after five years of working professionally, how we can use our talents as designers for good and to promote change, how she got into block printing and what it’s done to make her work better.
