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!

Creative South is coming up in a month and there are only about 100 tickets left, but there are plenty of spots remaining in the workshops.

My guest this week is Brian Manley of Fun With Robots Design Company. He has worked with bands like Manchester United and Taking Back Sunday, as well as Top Chef Kevin Gillespie. I talk with Brian about everything from starting off working in youth ministry in southern California, to punk music, to dealing with imposter syndrome and figuring out wear you fit in, to BBQ right after this: Ever find yourself looking for well designed apparel from your favorite state?
