I’ll never forget what Ian Davis told me when I first spoke with him: “I’m here to serve the creative community.” As a results-oriented creative problem solver, Ian heads up the consulting firm Age of the Creative and helps creatives of all kinds with handling their business affairs and get more opportunities.

Ian and I talked about his background working with some of the world’s top ad agencies birthed the idea to start his own business, walked me through a typical day, and shared how the power of community has transformed his life. If you’re a creative looking to take your presence to the next level, then Ian Davis is the man!

rich-hollant-300

Rich Hollant’s body of work is just…amazing. As the principal, strategist, and design director at CO:LAB (a firm he started in 1988), he has done work with everyone from Fortune 500 corporations to cities and municipalities with enriching social value projects. He’s won awards from AIGA, CADC, Print, HOW, and many other organizations. Rich is also going to be a new national board member for AIGA…and there’s even more!

While we did spend a good bit of time on the work that Rich and his firm does, our conversation touched on a lot of other points. Listen as Rich shares the secret to his business’ success and longevity, his philosophy on work and life, and learn how he says designers can get involved in social value projects. You’ll definitely want to take notes for this interview! Enjoy!

gus-granger-300

When it comes to design, Gus Granger is no stranger. As the principal of Dallas’ premiere brand communications agency 70kft, Gus works with clients and oversees a team focused on providing design, public relations, and digital marketing services to their clients.

We talked about how Gus started his company from the ground up, the current climate surrounding diversity in the technology and design communities, the importance of AIGA for students, and his recent project from Studio 360 which involved designing a new symbol for the South. Gus is a really positive and inspirational example of excellence in our field, and I’m really glad to have the chance to share his story with you all. Enjoy!
