Crazy Creative Podcast Episode 24 : Mark Sigman – Relic Brewing - Crazy Creative Podcast
https://youtu.be/zMmdeLkDCbA In this episode, I sat down with Mark Sigman, owner of Relic Brewing in Plainville, Connecticut. Mark gives a great interview and has a ton to say about the craft beer world. Mark Sigman fell in love with craft beer while working as a computer programmer out in Colorado in the mid 90's. When Mark returned to Connecticut in 2008, he discovered that the craft beer scene had not reached this area. Unhappy with the craft beer available in the area and with years of homebrewing experience, Mark decided to open his own craft brewery - Relic Brewing. Relic Brewing is great little brewery in Plainville that features dozens of interesting beer styles. Mark describes how he prefers to experiment with his beers and brewing many different styles to mass producing a handful of beers. We also talked about our experience working in the world of advertising. Mark was a computer programmer and says that his work in that world translates well to the world of beer production. I love the tasting room at Relic. Mark opens the tasting room walls to local artists to display their work. Mark also prides himself on having some of the nicest beer labels around. He should hire me to design one! Mark also talks about the beer app UNTAPPD and how the data collected from the app can help him track the popularity of his beers, when and where they're being consumed - which is an excellent tool for any business owner. Anyway - this is a great episode. I can't wait to head down to Relic soon during tasting room hours to mingle with Mark's fans.The beers I've sampled are excellent, I hope Mark and Relic Brewing the best of luck. Cheers!

Crazy Creative Podcast 23 : Louis Krubich and Jason Aron - Crazy Creative Podcast
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CaryCk4M3io Today I was lucky to sit down and record a three-way Google+ Hangout with Director, Jason Aron and Executive Producer, Louis Krubich. Both are the creative force behind the documentary, Back in Time which is a film that addresses the cultural significance of the Back to The Future Trilogy. Back in Time celebrates the iconic movie Back to the Future. Over 2,000 backers recently pledged almost $150,000 on Kickstarter to support the making of Back in Time. In 2013, over $45,000 was raised through Kickstarter for the film. Jason and Louis talk briefly about their creative process and how Back in Time came to be. I grew up with Back to the Future, so it was easy for me to connect with Jason and Louis about the movie. Jason and Louis described how the Back to the Future movies really are the greatest movie trilogy of ever made. They discussed how Back to The Future is such a great story that appeals to such a broad audience. Back in Time is due out October 21, and will be available on iTunes, Netflix, Amazon, and will also be played on the big screen in select cities. Along with the release will be a country a tour featuring cast members, DeLoreans, and live music from Back to The Future, of course. We also briefly di

Crazy Creative Podcast Episode 21 : Adam von Gootkin - Crazy Creative Podcast
https://youtu.be/GXNXlF6_otM Here's an awesome interview with Adam von Gootkin, Entrepreneur and Co-Founder of Onyx Moonshine in East Hartford, Connecticut. Adam von Gootkin is full of energy and provides a great interview, full of inspirational advice for other business owners and creatives out there. Adam has so much to say about business that he wrote a book, Living Proof: Onyx Moonshine's Journey to Revive the American Spirit, which releases in mid-October. You can pre-order now through Amazon, or Barnes and Noble. I look forward to reading it! In this interview Adam von Gootkin describes the daily operations of Onyx Moonshine. Adam also describes the evolution of ideas that took he and his partner, Peter Kowalczyk from owning a music recording studio, Onyx Soundlab in Manchester, to full-time distillers with Onyx Moonshine. I also spoke to Adam von Gootkin about his historical ties to moonshining in Connecticut as well as his attempt to revive moonshine as the legitimate American spirit is was before prohibition. I enjoy the products that Adam and Pete are producing at Onyx Moonshine and I'm very excited to see what they come up with next. Their new, speakeasy style tasting room was under construction during the interview but is close to opening. I think the place looks awesome and I can't wait to come back to visit.

Crazy Creative Podcast Episode 20 : Back East Brewing - Crazy Creative Podcast
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hdc3d-5OJkQ&feature=youtu.be In this episode I was lucky enough to grab some time with cousins Tony Karlowicz and Ed Fabrycki, Jr., Co-founders of Back East Brewing in Bloomfield, Connecticut. Tony and Ed are great guests who describe how they've turned their passion for craft beer and entrepreneurial spirit into the Back East Brewing Company. Tony and Ed also describe the amount of love and care that is required in producing a consistently great product. Being a homebrewer I have a fondness for the craft beer industry, and I'm so happy that it is booming in Connecticut now. Craft beer wasn't always such so popular in Connecticut, Tony and Ed were able to get their operation at Back East Brewing going at the perfect time. I have met some of the nicest people at beer fests, local homebrew clubs, and helping out at the nearest craft brewery. Tony and Ed from Back Brewing are no different. At one point in my life I though that I would own and operate my own brewery. Meeting up with Tony and Ed and all the folks from Back East Brewing just reminded me why I loved the industry so much. I look at craft beer the same way I look at food, or any other form of creative expression. I enjoy it, then I try to dissect to create it myself. I don't get to brew much these days, but I left the interview so inspired. Maybe it's time to pull the ol' mash tun out of storage! This episode is a little short since the tasting room was about to open. But you can learn more about Tony, Ed and the Back East Brewing Company at their website. Be sure to visit their tasting room and check out their tasty brews. I sampled their Porter, Octoberfest, and Intergalactic Lupulinary IPA - all delicious!

Crazy Creative Podcast Episode 19 : Kevin Doyle - Crazy Creative Podcast
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xyCZ0_KG_No&feature=youtu.be My buddy and main sponsor of the Crazy Creative Podcast, Coach Kevin Doyle came back on the show to talk about some exciting updates with him and his gym CrossFit Hartford. Since the last episode, Coach Kevin Doyle left his position as head strength and condition coach at Trinity College to focus on his business, CrossFit Hartford. He is also using his time to explore other avenues for success in the world of strength and conditioning. Kevin founded an amateur grid team, The Hartford Hammer. Grid is a new sport that has recently spawned out of CrossFit. Hartford Hammer is a team in the in The New England Grid League, which is an amateur level of the sport, grid. I think this is interesting because it gives CrossFitter's an opportunity to compete in a new area other than the CrossFit Open and some high-level athletes could earn money. You can learn more about grid by visiting their website. Coach Doyle also announced that He and his gym, CrossFit Hartford has taken over as owner and organizer of The Beast of the East, a major CrossFit competition in New England in October.

Crazy Creative Podcast Episode 18 : Sonia Plumb - Crazy Creative Podcast
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fuzYTJriTMI&feature=youtu.be In this episode I sit down with Sonia Plumb, Artistic Director at the Sonia Plumb Dance Company. Sonia invited me to come watch a rehearsal for the upcoming production of The Odyssey, which will be performed in October, 2015. I am a bit unfamiliar with dance and watching the rehearsal gave me a better understanding of the creative process that goes into a choreographed piece. There's a hug difference between seeing dance on television and seeing if performed live in front of you. The athleticism and mobility of the dances I saw is truly remarkable - almost breathtaking. Sonia Plumb and I talked about her background in dance and the work she does with The Sonia Plumb Dance Company. Sonia described how the company is involved in education in the Hartford area by bringing dance into the classroom to help reinforce concepts in science and literature. Sonia gives a great interview and her passion for dance really comes through in the interview. I can't wait to see the portions I saw rehearsal performed in the actual production. All of the work created by the Sonia Plumb Dance company is completely original, from the dance routines to the music which is created by composer Cory Gabel. As part of their 25th anniversary season, Artistic Director Sonia Plumb and her Company of modern dance professionals bring a contemporary version of Homer’s "The Odyssey" to West Hartford and Old Saybrook this October. "The Odyssey: An Epic Dance Journey" is a multimedia feast for your senses — with dance, masks and costumes, lighting and scenic effects, video projections of underwater choreography and stage combat, and even original music.

Crazy Creative Episode 17 : Peter Sena - Crazy Creative Podcast
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rlIeeubpoKQ&feature=youtu.be In this episode I am lucky enough to interview Peter Sena, Executive Creative Director and co-founder of Digital Surgeons in New Haven. It was truly a pleasure speaking with Peter Sena. He has a ton of knowledge about the design world which made for a great conversation. This might be one of my favorite episodes. Peter Sena is an intense person with an incredible passion for design and technology. Peter Sena started his career as a creative professional in his dorm room while attending the University of Connecticut. Fueled by creative passion, Pete was able to grow Digital Surgeons into a forty plus person operation and works with some serious brands like Camelbak, GE, Epic Games, Barney's New York, Unilever and Fender. I have been a fan of Digital Surgeons' work for years. I have kept tabs on their work through my buddy Matt Pringle, who is a designer there. I think Digital Surgeons is one of the best agencies in Connecticut and produce some seriously kick-ass work. I don't normally go back and listen to old podcasts, but, I will revisit this one many times. Pete is a wealth of creative knowledge and discusses a ton of good resources that every designer should seek out. If you're a designer, creative, or business owner, I urge you to listen to this episode. So much good stuff! Cheers! //steve

Crazy Creative Episode 16 : Steve Raboin - Crazy Creative Podcast
Steve Raboin | Crazy Creative Status Update https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bH00gQ4rqxs&feature=youtu.be Hey Everybody! Well, that's it. I've completed a two-year graduate Interactive Media Program (ICM) at Quinnipiac University. I just need to send in my capstone project, and I'm done. What a relief. These past two years have been a whirlwind for me. More specifically, the past six months have been nuts, once I decided to forgo preparing my résumé for my next job, and preparing to work for myself and run my design business. The Crazy Creative Podcast started as my capstone project, but morphed into a life project. I will continue to produce the show as a format to promote myself and other creatives who are making a living following their passion. I have met so many great people and uncovered so many opportunities in just sixteen episodes in four months. I'm excited to see what will happen in a few years. Next week I'll interview Peter Sena from Digital Surgeons and Sonia Plumb from Sonia Plumb Dance Company. I'll visit Back East Brewing the following week. If any creatives are interested in being a guest on the show, please contact me for scheduling. I can't wait to hear from you, the show is so much fun. Juggling a master's program, full-time work, family, fitness, and freelance has been pretty crazy though. When I started the ICM program my son was barely a year old, a baby. Now, he's a full-grown boy. The rest of my family has grown as well. Luckily I'm completing this program just in time to give my family my full attention. I'm taking a break from work this week and going on vacation with my family. I will have difficulty, but I'm going to unplug from my computer, my iPhone, social media, everything. I'm going to disconnect, rest, relax, to reconnect with my family. I think the rest will be good for me. I need to recharge, to come back stron

Nate Moore is now working on rebranding his Aviator Nathaniel Moore III clothing line. With a new rebranded look and meaning to our company we want to be the first new fashionable Christian clothing line that give our fellow Christians casual and formal looks for days at service or a day out and about. It was great to check in with Nate Moore to find out what he's been up to since graduating from the Graphic/Information Design Program at CCSU. We had a great conversation about our professional journeys over the past few years. Nate Moore is a great designer and is available for freelance design, so hit him up!

Crazy Creative Podcast 14 : Matt Westfall - Crazy Creative Podcast
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKLmnBpd8CEIn this episode I sat down to catch up with Matt Westfall, a beer buddy of mine and head brewer at New England Brewing Company (NEBCO). I met Matt back in 2006 during the height of my college/craft beer/homebrewing days. The time I have to devote to craft beer has severely diminished since becoming a designer and starting my family.The craft beer scene in CT has exploded in the past few years and I think it's great. Less than ten years ago CT had only a fraction of the beers that are now available for in package stores, and only a handful of craft breweries. Now the beer choice is overwhelming and now BeerAdvocate lists forty-eight breweries in the state. Hooray beer!In that time NEBCO has expanded to become one of my favorite brewers in the state, and one of the best breweries in the country.When I was stationed at Camp Pendleton, California I was exposed to an awesome craft beer scene that hadn't hit Connecticut yet. There was a time in my life after leaving the Marine Corps and becoming a designer when I wanted to be a professional brewer. I brewed about ten gallons of beer a month with my buddies, I went to beer festivals, and I made excessive road trips to visits breweries and brewpubs all over.Matt is really cool guy with a great attitude and I'm glad that I was able to reconnect with him on the podcast. The craft beer community is super friendly and fun. I suggest trying their beers when you can. Also, consider making a trip down to their new tasting room at 175 Amity Rd Woodbridge, CT 06525.You could also check out their beers at a great fundraising event supporting the SMS Research Foundation on August 30th.

I've been keeping tabs on his work since school, and wish I had half the Photoshop skills he has.Matt does some incredible work with the folks down at Digital Surgeons. They are a digitally focused agency with some serious clients and a portfolio of work that would make any designer drool.I had fun catching up with Matt Pringle. We compared the paths we've taken since design school and our experience working as creative professionals. I'm glad I've kept in contact with Matt Pringle over the years, he's a super-nice guy and a great designer.The hour and a half I spend with him was probably enough to inspire my design work for the next year. Matt's also pretty funny, so we have a pretty good conversation. Check it out!The post Crazy Creative Podcast 13 : Matt Pringle appeared first on Steve Raboin.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0qgDv3um4wI&feature=youtu.beRory Gale Hartford Prints!It seems like most creatives are trying to get in on the current tech boom and create the next big app. I think it's refreshing to find someone, I should say three sisters, who decided to take a different route.In this episode I sat down with Rory Gale, the bubbly (younger sister) from Hartford Prints!Rory Gale and her sisters combined their various backgrounds in art, fashion, and design to create Hartford Prints! in 2012. The company started as a letterpress shop where they focused on hand-printing stationary and wedding invitations. But, Hartford Prints! quickly grew into an urban goods brand allowing them to open a retail location in 2013 that offers a variety of unique, one-of-a-kind items.I was interested to know how, and why Rory and her sisters decided to open the press, and how they've been so successful. Their success is the result of great talent, hard work, and perfect timing. I think we're witnessing a return of the artisan and hand-crafted, locally produced goods - and I love it!Not only are the sisters at Hartford Prints! devoted to creating beautiful work, they're also leading the charge to restore pride in City of Hartford and Connecticut through their products and promotions, like their "Grow Local, Buy Local, Love Local" campaign.Think locally act globally. Everyone says it, but Hartford Prints! does it. Hartford Prints! is a success, but they're not selfish, they want everyone to succeed. I love that Hartford Prints! is taking a holistic approach to the growth of Hartford by organizing many events throughout the community to help local business and professionals network with each other.I love this interview, Rory Gale has such a warm personality that shines through their wonderful work. Check out their website, or visit the Hartford Prints! retail shop at 42 1/2 Pratt Street in downtown Hartford. Cheers!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G_mAY5Ait0II recently discovered the ability to record podcast interviews using Google + Hangouts. Google + Hangouts allows you to record and publish directly to YouTube. Which is helpful, I find the upload process the most annoying part of this whole podcast thing. It takes days.This is my first time using the technology. I found a tutorial on Social Media Examiner, that describes how to set up a live show. This tool will be helpful in the future when I want to interview creatives that are not in my immediate area.Luckily my friend, user experience designer, Mark Figueiredo agreed to help me test out this process. In this episode we discuss Mark's journey to becoming a designer, his creative process, and what user experience design is all about.Mark is a serious designer with years of experience working for several major companies including, Stanley Black & Decker and T. Rowe Price.Mark describes the path he took to become a designer, and what his life is like now as a user experience designer. I try to gather as much info as I can from this kick-ass creative professional.If you want to learn more about User Experience Design, you can connect with Mark on Twitter: @MarkfiguLike I said, today's show was my first experience recording a live show using Google + Hangouts. We both get pretty excited during our conversation, as a result the audio and video is a bit choppy.The show is not as good as I would like, and I plan on having Mark back on the show soon. I plan on using this tool in the future. My goal for the show's format is a free-form conversation, but I think next time we'll have to slow down a bit and treat as an interview.Whatever, this was a great learning experience.
