Design influences the world around us every day. We chat with designers, illustrators, photographers, and others to find out the stories that made them want to get into the creative world as a career, and talk with chefs, bartenders, restaurateurs and anyone else that uses their creative talent about how they use their creative talents to design their menus and restaurants.
If you have suggestions for guests or questions about the show, please reach out to us on Twitter @feastondesign.
Welcome to the Creative South Podcast! I’m your host, Jason Frostholm. Today on the show I talk with illustrator. Jerrod Maruyama. If you aren’t familiar with Jerrod, he's done a ton of work for companies like Facebook, Nickelodeon, Mattel, and Hasbro. He’s probably best known to the design world for his kawaii style illustrations and creating Hipster Mickey for Disney’s Wonderground Gallery. We sit down at talk about his career path, the process of working with Disney, doing side projects just for himself, and much more, all right after this.
