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 @creativesouthga or @jfrostholm, or shoot us an email at jason at creativesouth dot com. #Hugnecks
Welcome to the Creative South Podcast! I’m your host, Jason Frostholm. My guest this week is Bethany Heck. Bethany is currently a creative lead for Microsoft’s Power BI team. Her work has been featured in New York Magazine, The New Yorker, Wired, Smashing Magazine, Uppercase Magazine and several other international publications. In addition to that, she runs Eephus League, an online shop dedicated to the fringes of baseball, and freelances under her company Heck House. Bethany and I talk about, growing up the child of a design professor, her love of baseball, the difference between being a designer and being a creative director, and much more.
