Design is universal. We all live and work in the built world, and every object, system and environment in the built world has been designed. Clever is a podcast about design.

Such a fun, interesting, and thoughtful look at any and all aspects of design & creativity! The depth & breadth of the amazing people being interviewed is like no other. And the wisdom, joy, creative thought and processes shared by people most of us would never have a chance to meet or know in any other way is a gift. Thanks! This is inspiring & one of my go-to podcasts for when I am creating. 😃

Amy and Jaime get some of the most influential designers to give up an hour of their time for the same questions: tell us about your childhood, how’d you start [insert company or profession here], what’s your process like. The absolute least they could do is at least try to think of a question based on the conversation and the insight the guest is offering. Content aside, Amy seems to always be yelling at her mic which makes listening a painful endeavor while Jaime has an ever-present echo so it sounds like they record it in a bathroom.

Designer, illustrator and artist Timothy Goodman was labeled a “dead-end kid” in his youth until he did four years of hard labor with a mentor/father-figure in the home improvement industry, through which he found both discipline and a desire to study design. A degree and a few more mentors later he’s now known for his illustrations, viral social experiments, murals, books and even protests. Plus, he’s checking his white cis straight male privilege and championing inclusion in ways both meaningful and practical. Pretty rad.

Furniture & interior designer Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance moved from Paris to the “super boring” French countryside in his youth where he spent all day on his bicycle inventing new worlds in his mind. After a brief attempt at becoming a movie star, he found design. He came home from a trip to Morocco with both a baby, and a job designing a high profile restaurant (not with the same people). Now based in Lisbon he’s designing for global brands and fixing problems through emotions and moments of sincerity.

Podcast cover
Read more

Furniture designer Jeff Martin grew up in Vancouver, BC struggling with punctuation and hiding in a dilapidated abandoned boat. He spent his teenage years expressing himself through skateboarding and snowboarding. Following a devastating accident and subsequent slow recovery, he found his voice through writing and reconnected to his body through physical labor and making. Now he’s using his voice and hands to build community, as well as beautiful, inventive furniture. Also, he’s thinking of doing mushrooms (as furniture!).

Internationally acclaimed designer Humberto Campana grew up in small-town Brazil and found imaginative freedom in crafts and the local movie theater. During his adolescence it was considered subversive, even dangerous, to become an artist so he decided law school was the best way to get to the big city. He eventually abandoned law in order to “construct his life with his own hands.” A near-death experience led to his first chair design and the formation of an enduring studio partnership with his brother.
