In this week’s episode we mix things up and get personal. Now that the Honest Designers show is 6 months old, we wanted to share a little more about ourselves, for everyone listening at home.  We kick off by asking each other some design related questions and then do a round of quick fire personal related questions which reveal some surprising answers and one very bizarre hidden talent.  We hope you enjoy it and let’s get into the show!

In this week’s episode we are pumped because we’re actually answering three questions, from listeners Izzi, Maureen and Danielle. Each of these wonderful listeners have very different questions around design, but we are really excited to dig deep for all of you at home and provide as much value as we can muster. Let’s get into the show!

In this week’s episode, we dig into everything to do with your portfolio. As designers, our portfolio is like our shop front for the world. This week we really go deep into what makes a good portfolio, the steps it takes to improve what you currently have, and how to present your work in the best light. We also think outside the box, when it comes to our social medias beginning to take over as our modern day portfolio in many respects.

In this week’s episode we’re joined by the very talented Joanna Fallon, a multi-disciplined designer working from the Cotswolds in the UK. If you follow Design Cuts you may recognise Jo from her weekly vlogs where she’s been documenting the ups and downs of growing her creative business. This week we pick Jo’s brain and dig into the reality of what it really takes to get a design business of the ground.

In this week’s episode we look at the benefits of working with clients remotely vs. working with them face to face.  We dig into why there really is no substitute for in person interaction, but do give you some tips for how to mimic this personal interaction in your emails and digital correspondence with clients.  This episode is a real guide of how to think about dealing with clients and we hope that you enjoy it. So without further ado, let’s get into the show!
