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!

Welcome to the Creative South Podcast, I’m your host Jason Frostholm. Thanks for joining us this week. This is a sad time for the design community, as we learned that Creative South Friend, Brad Iroff passed away suddenly and unexpectedly a couple weeks ago, at the age of 36. Brad was a husband, father, and friend, as well as the CEO of Kickstart Creative, a fixture in the Atlanta design community, an avid mountain biker, and vinyl record collector. In his passing Brad leaves behind his wife Jen, a young daughter McKenna, and a daughter on the way. A college fund has been set up for his daughter McKenna, if you’d like to donate you can do so at gofundme.com/iroff.
