After our #TDKtuesdays studio tour with the Moo gang in early 2018, we had a little chat with Moo Denver Design Services Manager, Rachel Loeb about her design journey, the behind-the-scenes Moo magic, and why it's okay to feel uncomfortable.
Consume & Create
There are way too many amazing quotes in here from the Consume & Create team that to pull them all out you'd pretty much be reading the whole interview already. Creative Directors Steve Hurd & Josh Wills have really squeezed out EVERYTHING they know for us. We talk about the relationship between digital and traditional design in the studio; why interns need an eagerness to learn EVERY part of the design process - not just the glamorous parts; and how inspiration strikes in all kinds of places!
We chat with Studio Mast Principal, Creative Director, Project Manager, Receptionist, Janitor, and Dog Walker, Travis Ladue. Travis shares his favorite books, blogs and podcasts and tells us about how he can’t stand when studios make interns get coffee and do production work!
The team from Novel give some great advice for students and share some great reads. While also telling us about the creative growth in Denver, and how their passion projects have a long term substantial goal in mind.
Ben Wallace from Course talks to us about starting at the bottom and the shit they went through getting started in design. They also tell us how the design scene isn't really valued enough in Denver, but how they feel there is change in the creative scene. And how mentoring from senior designers should be more of a thing!
It was really great getting a interview with an environmentally responsible design studio - Cast Iron. Richard and Jonny who run the studio based in Colorado, tell us whats involved in a typical working day for them. Also 5 design crushes, teaching students to teaching clients and a side project that involves a particular special notebook.
It's safe to say that Andrew Hoffman is a busy man, though he believes strongly in a good work-life balance. He tells us how becoming an Adjunct Professor saved he's design life! And how he made the jump from analogue to digital two years ago and why you should or shouldn't also.
