Ian Paget // The Niché World of Branding & the People Who Love it

Airs Wednesday, April 25, 2018 at 2:30pm ET / 11:30am PT


I have been a big fan of Ian Paget and Logo Geek for a while now. Ian is talented, driven, and his story is inspirational. His story is one we can all relate to, he has faced many obstacles but has never let it get the best of him. AND he is even nicer than I imagined. He is genuine, helpful, and transparent about his growth and process. Ian has created a popular podcast and a community where fellow branding aficionados can gather, encourage, give feedback, and share tips all from his love of branding and logo design.
.
Ian has gone from full-time designer with a side hustle and a busy side project to working part-time at his job and doing his side hustle more permanently on Thursdays–Sundays. If you have wanted to make that transition from full-time to part-time so you can pursue your passion project or freelance business then this show will be full of tips and wisdom. I hope you will join us for this episode of Design Recharge LIVE on Wednesday, April 25 at 2:30pm ET / 11:30am PT.
