About the podcast

Currently my podcast is on Season 3.

Season 3 – Episode 157 – Present
Season 3 is all about Craig talking into a mic about topics loosely connected to design. They’re raw, direct, and live episodes where Craig just says what’s on his mind, with no editing and nothing cut out. This is all about design and creativity, straight from the mouth of the creative director of a design agency.

Season 2 – Episode 80 – 156
AADA is a musical journey through design and creativity. It’s a trippy, midnight-style podcast where Craig talks about design, creativity, and all the bits in between, hidden underneath, and around design. Think Blue Jam crossed with Radio Lab, or 99% Invisible crossed with Terence McKenna. It’s what would happen if Morcheeba did a TED talk. It’s released daily, at 00:15.

Season 1 – Episode 1-79
Ask a Designer Anything was useful tips and hints about design, marketing and business, everyday.

Why a daily podcast?

I like setting challenges. For quite a long time, I’ve set myself projects where I do something every day for 365 days. In the past, I’ve designed posters, record sleeves, taken photographs, and designed logos.

For a long time I’ve been interested in podcasts, so on December 23rd 2016 I decided I’d take on a new challenge: make a podcast every day for 365 days. On December 23rd 2016, I didn’t have a clue how to achieve this. By January 1st, I’d launched my first ever podcast. I’ll let you decide whether it’s any good or not.

About Craig

Craig Burgess

I’m Craig Burgess, and I have a thing or two to say about design.

I’m a graphic designer and a web designer by trade, but I do much more than that (it’s hard to explain, my parents don’t even know what I do for a living).

I run a design agency in the UK called Genius Division. That involves doing all sorts of things as well, but the main thing I’m talking about here is design and creativity, the two things I’m really passionate about and the things that interest me the most.

I’m also passionate about eating, lifting weights and video games. Maybe I’ll make another podcast to talk about those.

I’ve been running Genius Division with 2 other directors for over 6 years, and I’ve been a web designer and graphic designer for over 10 years.

Over that time, I’ve worked across the entire spectrum of design and marketing, with years of experience in everything from (take a deep breath now) branding, web design, web development, graphic design, print design, marketing, social media marketing, search engine optimisation, and all the other buzz words that our industry invents every day.
