Savannah Glitschka

This week on Feasting on Design I'm chatting with Savannah Glitschka. We chat about her love for manga and how that led her selling art at conventions, plus how it’s influenced everything from her illustration stye to the fashion she loves. We also get into how she uses references and influences from other cultures to help inform her character design, working with her dad, struggling with ADHD, and so much more.

This episode of Feasting on Design is supported by the new season of Wireframe – a podcast all about how UX can help technology fit into our lives. Hosted by Khoi Vinh, Senior Director of Design at Adobe, Wireframe is a show for designers and the design-curious. This Season of Wireframe leans into how design intersects with the changing world around us.

There are stories about how user experience design helps people manage stress and sleeplessness; find something good to watch on an online streaming service; help individuals, creators and social causes through crowdfunding. It explores how design helps older family members understand technology, and the podcast also chats with designers trying to make voting easier. Turns out, it’s really hard.

You’ll hear from designers and design leaders who have built UX and UI experiences for companies like Headspace, Patreon, Kickstarter, Withings, and other companies that are putting design at the forefront of their companies’ experiences.

Whether you’re into UX, UI, technology… or just curious about the way design impacts our everyday lives, I hope you’ll check out the show.

Just search “Wireframe” in your favorite podcast app (like the one you’re using right now). I’ll also include a link in the show notes. My thanks to Wireframe for supporting Feasting on Design.
