Works in Process
Works In Process is a series of conversations with creative individuals that explore the evolution and technique behind their latest projects— highlighting, exploring and possibly demystifying the creative process. This podcast is a way to discover, and really uncover the creative process that goes behind the work that creatives do. I speak to designers, artists, writers, and other types of creative individuals to discuss their process. Through hopeful candid conversations, I want to highlight the guests that I talk to. It is the way they work and their projects that inspired me.
