Two Red Chairs is a podcast aimed at creating conversations with fellow designers, creative experts and industry professionals that relate to becoming better designers and business owners.
At the end of 2019, I was lucky enough to have the opportunity of a sit-down interview with Rob Janoff, the designer of the Apple logo, while he and his team were at Sydney's Sofitel Darling Harbour hotel.
Rob was simply an amazing man to meet and had so much time for everyone in the room, including myself. Big shoutout to my mate Dave Katague for recording and filming this episode.
Author of Burn Your Portfolio, The Psychology of Graphic Design Pricing and former design agency owner, Michael Janda has become the godfather of freelance and design business owner education.
Michael is the most approachable and down to earth guy you might ever meet in the design community and in this episode we focused on getting pricing right in our design business.
Any of us in business need to know the legal bits and pieces needed to operate our business and our client engagements with peace of mind. Which is where Riz from Foundd Legal comes into the picture.
