Get the low down on your fav Glasgow creatives, how they started out and if they’re hiring!
In between poking a bit of fun at each other, we chat with David Freer (aka D-Frazzle), Josh Peter (aka J-Peetz,) and Jonny Mowat (just Jonny) of O Street about working together across 3 different cities, how they each got their foot in the door, plus they explain their client calculator.
We talk football (soccer), mental health and of course typography with one of the loveliest humans you'll ever meet - Craig Black. The TDK team have been lucky enough to hang out with Craig on both sides of the globe now and we're thrilled to finally get his thoughts and feelings on design out into the world. Here we discuss consistency in your work, making practice a habit, and some really important mental health insights that, as creatives, we should start to acknowledge.

The crew at Jamhot had us in stitches when we stopped by 🤣 What a team, these guys are doing awesome things not only in the studio but also within our community.
