We discuss his hero’s journey of putting pen to paper, creating illustrations, movie posters, and written works. We go on many comic book-related tangents, while still managing to focus on why the medium is so artistically poignant and how it’s come to influence us as fans & creators.

65 – Theatre Design w. Sofia Lukie

Theatrical designer Sofia Lukie is here to talk all about exactly that!

We break theatre design down into some broad categories – lighting, sound, set, costumes, projections – in order to discuss what makes these elements work & what makes them fall flat. We chat about our own personal design tendencies and how designers adapt for modern audiences; the ones who require more than just smoke machines and a spotlight to get their butts into the theatres’ seats.

40 – Interior Design w. Emily Southall

Emily Southall joins us to explain what interior design is and why it’s so cool.

We talk all about “inside architecture”: how to use the design of a space to guide your users, how to impart a mood or an idea through construction, and how interior design is the unsung art form that we all interact with everyday.

Make sure to check out all the great work from Wolski Design if you were intrigued by our conversation!
