Episode 242 - Patrick Richardson - January Began - Illustrator & Designer - Fort Collins, CO.

Episode #242

This weeks guest is Patrick Richardson. He is a Graphic Designer and Illustrator working as January Began out of Fort Collins CO.

During this episode we talk about:

-how he was always drawing as a kid, including dinosaurs in church.

-the odd design course that he took that ended up really showing him what design was.

-his experience and struggle with finding that first design job.

-how a project he was a part of at his second ever design job did not go as planned.

-how he managed to get some of his design work into REI and what was surprising about that experience for him.

I had a great time chatting with Patrick about his journey in this wild design world. Check him out at @januarybegan
