Rookie Designer Podcast

By Jake Van Ness & Carl Grivakis

The Rookie Designer Podcast was founded in 2005, about one year into the growth of the new medium referred to as podcasting. Tired of the typical jargon laden, elitist discussions about the design field of work, Rookie Designer set out to create a resource for all designers, young and old, experienced and non. The Rookie Designer Podcast, brings tips, techniques and discussion delivered in an easy-to-understand format.
