Works In Process
About This Show
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.
As a culture, we are so quick to like, heart, share, and /or comments on creativity these days, that we sometimes don't sit back and appreciate the real work—the process— that goes into any creative solution. I hope to maybe change that—slowly.
We as creatives are never finished, it is always a work in process.Read more »

wip 07: Nick Misani — Celebrating the details
"Being overconfident can do more hard than good— (especially) if you think that everything is going to be easy for you and you deserve everything right off the bat... people get into a lot of trouble and their growth gets stifled a little bit if they're not open to just toiling away in the dark for quite some time...” In this episode, I met up with Penguin Books, Mucca Design, and Fili Ltd. alum Nick Misani. Nick has been honing his typographic skills by designing decorative book covers and digging into the history books to learn more from historical references—this has led him to the successful side project called Fauxsacis. Our conversation went a bit long, but it was the first time meeting Nick. Not only did I want to hear more about the process of beginning a project like Fauxsaicas, but also I what he learn from working with Louise Fili. Even though Nick was getting over a cold, he shared some wisdom on why the limitations of his fake mosaics are rooted in tradition, why he decided to start this as an Instagram project, and what he has in store for the future. Look out USA, he's bringing workshops to a city near you :) Thanks again Nick for a great interview! Sorry my procrastination delayed the release of your episode and say hi to Cooper. (his dog) Fauxsaics is a series of travel-inspired, typographic mosaic illustrations—which has since been featured on a variety of design sites and blogs including the ADC/The One Club blog.
