I didn't want the conversation to feel too 'inside' or stilted. The fact that we have such diverse experience makes the podcast that much more interesting.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 30, 2012
The Deep End, a Los Angeles based design studio has launched its own bi-weekly web and graphic design podcast called "The Deeply Graphic DesignCast." It is aimed at designers, and thoroughly explores a new design-related topic in every episode. The shows that are available so far feature the three hosts sharing their own experiences with topics ranging from where to find inspiration, to online portfolio best practices.
The hosts include The Deep End's lead designer, Wes McDowell, as well as outside designers Mikelle Morrison and Brandon Voss. Regarding his co-hosts, McDowell says, "When I was thinking about who I wanted to do this podcast with, it was important to me to include other designers from other cities and other studios, because I didn't want the conversation to feel too 'inside' or stilted. The fact that we have such diverse experience makes the podcast that much more interesting."
The DesignCast is available for free subscription on iTunes, and is currently receiving a five star rating in their "New & Noteworthy" section. In his iTunes review of the podcast, Los Angeles graphic designer Jason Frazier says, "It's refreshing to hear about tips, trends and general working methodology direct from fellow creatives, who explore issues from all angles, including client, business and creative."
The long-term goal for the podcast is not to talk "at" the audience, but to involve them in the show. Fans of the podcast are encouraged to email design-related questions to questions(at)thedeependdesign(dot)com to be answered by the hosts on-air.
