I used to enjoy this podcast, Dan always brought out cool stories from his guests but this newest episode with the new host was TERRIBLE. Basically a long-form, rambling commercial for the guest’s product. It was so grubby. I could only make it through 15 minutes before turning it off.

Debbie Millman has worked with some of the world's biggest brands including Burger King, Hershey’s, Haagen-Dazs, Twizzlers—just to name a few. She's written six books, is a frequent keynote speaker on design and branding, and she hosts the first and longest running podcast about design, Design Matters.

In this episode, we discuss the drawing that started it all, why rejection can be worse than failure, how Design Matters got started, and why persistence is the key to success.

“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.”

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."
