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!

My guest today is Eric Friedensohn. Eric is a freelance designer and hand lettering artist, based out of New York City. We talk about his passion for travel, which lead him to internships in Prague and Lithuania during college, working with friends in an accountability group to keep pushing himself to work on projects and hold him to his goals, how Creative South introduced him to some amazing friendships, and his up coming Summer of Sketching project that you can learn more about at SummerOfSketching.com
