Episode 16: Rafael Polendo - Judge a Book by His Cover

The Listening Chair

From Taco Bell to Panda Express, numerous companies have benefited from the artistic gifts of graphic designer, Rafael (Ralph) Polendo over the past nineteen years. And a few years back he began using his skills to help authors by enhancing their book designs and branding. He and his wife, Teighlor, now own Quoir Publishing Company, and to them every piece of the book is part of the artistic experience and must be pleasing to the eye. With every author they sign on and every conversation they host on their podcasts (they are releasing a second one soon), Quoir’s goal is to model respectful dialogue between those from different schools of theological thought. Along with the under-girding motive of their company, he tells an enduring story from his childhood that foreshadowed his artistic career, and the origin story of his ever-popular, ever-enlightening podcast, The Heretic Happy Hour. Ralph also shares of the unhealthiest assumption about Christian authors that he works to correct. He shares that, “An assumption about the Christian marketplace that I would like to correct is that not all Christian authors are cheesy or inauthentic. I would love for folks to understand that Christian authors wrestle with the realities of life as well and desire to challenge the reader.” Connect with Ralph and Teighlor at Quoir Publishing. Connect with Ralph as a graphic designer here. Join the Heretic Happy Hour podcast community where there are burning questions, not people, and enjoy the tunes of Barrett Johnson (creator of the Heretic Happy Hour theme song) here. The Listening Chair is an outlet of the Institute for Discipleship (IFD). This episode is sponsored by the Timothy Circle.
