110 - Ash Thorp
Ash is a longtime friend, and a world renowned designer and artist.
We talk about a lot of things, as always, as we bounce back and forth between the work we do, the work we've done in the past and how things have evolved over time. He's the most prolific person I know, and a true inspiration for achieving whatever dream you might have.
Ash is mostly recently known for his work on The Batman film, and also for a constellation of amazing projects like Orion, Chimera, Make Haste Corp, Akira, Evinetta, The Collective Podcast, among others.

109 - Taylor McDade
Taylor is the operations manager at The Mill Design Studio, working for the all the design departments in The Mill group worldwide.
She's been in the HR and recruitment side of things for a a while, and I've always wanted to talk to her about that side of the business: learn about best practices for staff and freelance, work relationships, managing teams, and how being a good decent human will always go much longer than just having an amazing skillset.

108 - Alex Moulton
Alex Moulton is Chief Creative Officer at Trollback+Company in NYC.
Alex doesn't think he's a graphic designer, but he still found his way to working with the best brands in the world, surrounded by some of the most talented designers around.
Trollback has long been regarded as one of the most influential design studios in the world, responsible for large scale brands such as FOX, HBO MAX or DISNEY+
We chat about working in large projects, dealing with teams and clients, the longevity of work and how to adapt to the future.
A deep and wide-reaching conversation.
107 - Eric S. Anderson
Eric is a big reference for me, and a friend I've kept in touch with throughout the years. To me, he embodies what left-field thinking is - a true creative. His background in music creation helped inform his television work, and also make up for some amazing stories (Nirvana anyone?).
He's a two-time Emmy Award-winning director and editor for the title sequences of Dexter and Six Feet Under.
After graduating from film and interdisciplinary studies at Minneapolis College of Art and Design, Eric formed Pachyderm Recording Studio with Mark Walk and Jim Nickel, where they handled projects such as Nirvana’s “In Utero” and PJ Harvey’s “Rid of Me,” among others. In 1998, Eric joined Digital Kitchen as a live action director, editor, and executive creative director, managing the creative from their Chicago office for over 12 years. In 2010, he relocated to Hollywood to assume the role of creative director at yU+co, Logan and MPC, and is now an independent live action director.
Just two friends sitting down for a chat. Can't get any better than that.
106 - Lauren Hartstone
Lauren Hartstone is someone I've always looked up to as a designer, and after working with her on a couple of amazing projects, can now also call a friend.
I love how clear and precise her work his, and how that also translates to her style as a team leader.
Lauren is an Executive Creative Director (and now partner) at Sibling Rivalry in NY, and previously worked at Gretel and Imaginary Forces.
We talk about roles in design practice, levels of involvement, teams and clients - and how I think women are generally better than men at it!
A wonderful conversation.
An ongoing conversation with designers, filmmakers, musicians and other creatives about process, decision making, the state of the industry and whatever else comes to mind.
