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. Today, I talk with Becky Margraf. Becky is the Platform Manager for DIY.org, an online learning community for kids. She's well-known for her 100-day projects involving felt faces and most recently her felt pockets series. We talk about how her career path led her from majoring in Graphic design to running DIY.org, wanting to work on things that make a difference, working on personal projects as a creative outlet and an emotional anchor during a stressful year, and more, all right after this.
You can find out more about Becky on Twitter @BeckyMargraf and be sure to check out the links in the show notes for more ways to keep up with her. You can keep up with the podcast on Twitter and Facebook @CreativeSoPod, and follow Creative South on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram @CreativeSouthGA or over at CreativeSouth.com, and I’m @jfrostholm on Dribbble, Twitter, and Instagram.
