Alex Pearson on Adventures in Design Podcast

This week I had the pleasure of being on Adventures in Design Podcast with Mark Brickey Episode 200. It's "America's only daily morning talk show for creatives just like you". He brought me into the "Circle of Trust" for an honest and open talk about Familytree, and what I've been up to. I've been a fan of the show since it's inception in 2012, and it's provided me with a lot of creative and business inspiration over the years, so it was a real honor to be on the show myself. In case you're not familiar with the podcast or it's host, Mark is a designer, illustrator, and general loudmouth bad boy of graphic design. The show is about finding your way in the creative industry, artistic growing pains, and features interviews with tons of top talent from the gig poster world, graphic design, illustration, fashion, and more. During our chat we talked about my illustration style, why I like to work with other artists on my projects, some of the challenges and bumps in the road along the way, why modern movie blockbusters stink, and so much more.

You can also purchase an extended version of our conversation with bonus content by subscribing to the Circle of Trust. In the extended interview Mark and I discuss some more of the business side of things, including how I utilize Facebook ads, a key calculation I made that helped me change my business, and why I hired a Digital Marketing Strategist.
