Episode 395 - The DKNG Show: Chapter 3

DKNG opens up their doors once again and invites us in to their studio. As industry leaders in design, Dan and Nathan do everything from lectures to textures at such a high level of expertise it's no wonder they continue to push the limits of what one boutique design firm can accomplish. It's not easy to maintain such a thriving business in any line of work, but DKNG lays out exactly how they handled each of their most recent projects to clearly show what its like to operate a successful two person design team and where they still push themselves to improve and stay at the top. Production tips. Presentation strategies. Public Perception. It's not just design that goes into this game of pixel pushing and The DKNG Show gives AID an exclusive full view of how two top notch artists and businessmen run their shop.
