Really great content and knowledge - although sometimes it feels like the interviewers don’t listen and respond to the interviewees questions, but rather just move on to the next question. It doesn’t feel conversational enough sometimes.

Since we re-branded to Advanced Design - we had to make some changes to some of our services. Our ADS Live is now called “CONTEXT”. A podcast where we have conversations about design, discuss the circumstances that form the setting for an event, statement, or idea, and in terms of which it can be fully understood and assessed. Our first session (and longest podcast, clocking in at two hours) is with seasoned designer Michael DiTullo - who has designed for so many brands such as Converse, Nike, Sound United, and frog. Super grateful we were able to get Michael to join us and discuss how social media is part of our process and life. We discussed how Instagram and the images we post as designers are the tip of the iceberg, there’s so much behind what we do, we also discussed failures, and how we should embrace it, be more open about it. To follow Michael’s design work and journey, be sure to follow him on Instagram @d2lo.

Most recently, he designed a rare 1 of 1 shoe for Takashi Murakami that was sold at last year’s ComplexCon in Long Beach, CA for $17,000 for charity, and at this year’s ComplexCon, he collaborated with Timberland to be part of their CONSTRUCT: 10061 initiative.

We had the pleasure to chat with Nicole McLaughlin, - a designer and maker of up-cycled products, her work contributes to the topic of sustainability, and is changing the way we think about the longevity of the soft goods that we own. We kicked things off by talking about her early work in college as a graphic design major, doing unpaid internships to build her experience and credibility as a designer, so that she would eventually land an internship opportunity at Reebok. We discussed the struggles and the hustle behind unpaid internships, and how everyone should pay their interns no matter what - we also talked about the pressure she put on herself to succeed and get ahead while wrapping up her undergraduate degree. When Nicole was promoted to full time design, she discovered her love for prototyping, and began to build and make footwear prototypes from up-cycled materials during her own time after work. She later came to a realization that her side hustle can be a real studio - after receiving various media attention from Hypebeast, Vogue, and Highsnobiety - it was the validation she needed to step away from corporate America. Please listen to the whole interview for Nicole’s unique design story! Thanks for tuning in, be on the lookout for our next podcast! Thank you @nicolemclaughlin for being so candid and honest.

Really great content and knowledge - although sometimes it feels like the interviewers don’t listen and respond to the interviewees questions, but rather just move on to the next question. It doesn’t feel conversational enough sometimes.
