...on how the process is the inspiration.

Rich Roat, Andy Cruz and Ken Barber join the show to kick off the third season, discussing two new projects House Industries have embarked upon. The first project is A Type of Learning, a multi-sensory exhibition in The Henry Ford in Dearborn Michigan opening on May 27. The exhibit walks visitors through a large scale physical representation of House Industries’ creative process, showing how childhood interests in drawing led to creating fonts that help the world communicate; how hot-rodding and punk rock influences reinforced a hands-on approach to problem-solving; and how personal interests can inspire innovation. The second project is their new book, The Process is the Inspiration, available on May 30. The book is a beautiful collection of helpful lessons, stories and case studies that demonstrate how you can transform obsessive curiosity into personally satisfying and successful work. Ryan and the guys discuss all of this plus learning from what you like, being an armchair historian for American graphic design and finding inspiration in your daily routine.
