Rank #2: Balancing Work and Life on the Fly with Alana Louise

Podcast cover
Read more

Episode 40 features Alana Louise, an independent designer living in Austin, TX. She’s worked with incredible companies like Yeti, United by Blue, Austin Beerworks, and others. When Alana Louise is not designing, she’s on the river fly fishing. In this episode, she tells us how sharing her passion for fishing on Instagram helped her land her dream clients. Dan and Alana Louise also cover design systems and how they’re applied to packaging and what it’s like to be part of the local design scene in Austin. She also shares her thoughts on seeking citizenship in the US.

"Because on my Instagram, I post pictures of whatever hike I did or whatever fish I caught, that attracts a certain group of followers. Then when they discover that I'm a designer, I think that's when that type of work comes in. Right now I'm working on a project with two outdoor companies that are collaborating on public land use. Which I'm a complete supporter for because the water I fish in is public and I would love it to stay that way."

“I don't think it's possible to make a name for yourself doing work for other people. I think that the way you make a name for yourself is doing original work on your own. Which doesn't mean you have to quit your job to do it. I was doing Design Matters while I had two full-time jobs.”
