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 @creativesopod or @jfrostholm, or shoot us an email at jason at creativesouth dot com. #Hugnecks
Today on the Creative South Podcast, I’m talking with Illustrator and Designer, Tad Carpenter. Tad and his wife Jessica run Carpenter Collective based out of Kansas City and have worked with clients like Adobe, Target, and Conan O’Brien. We chat about growing up in Kansas City while his dad was an illustrator for Hallmark, the reasons why you should work for someone and learn from them before you make the jump to go out on your own, how he ended up hosting Kodak’s youtube series Press On, and more.
You can find out more about Tad on Twitter @TadCarpenter and be sure to check out the links in the show notes for more ways to keep up with him.
