NEW PROJECT: RAISE YOUR HAND. SAY YES.

podcast cover by artsocialpodcast cover by artsocialSome of the best and most rewarding design projects are those that allow me to reeaally get to know a brand. I’ve been working with Tiffany Han on her graphics since 2013 and it’s been pure magic.

Most recently, I helped design a cover for her new podcast, Raise Your Hand. Say Yes. It's a weekly podcast about the creative adventures of (extra)ordinary people. After listening to the first episode with Erin Loechner of Design for Mankind (omg!), I was hooked.

Each episode is such an open and honest discussion about creativity. It's refreshing and inspiring... plus my favorite topic EVER is how creative peeps overcome their fears and make a career for themselves, on their own terms, doing what they love. Isn't that just the best??

For the photo, we wanted something fun, lighthearted, and creative (of course!). I snapped a few shots in my studio of various props. The gold dino with sequins quickly stood out as a winner - because what's more fun, lighthearted, and creative than that?? Nothing.

For the text, I really wanted it to be fun and personal - just like the interviews. For the main title, we stuck with Tiffany's current font to keep her branding consistent. But then we threw in some custom handwriting, Tiffany's handwriting to be exact! She sent over scans of her writing, which I then digitized in illustrator. SO much fun, you guys. I think it adds the perfect finishing touch.

I'm beyond thrilled I got to work on Tiffany's podcast. What a fun project! And P.S. it's currently on iTunes' list of new & noteworthy podcasts! WHAT. Congrats, Tiffany! :)
