Design Recharge

Coming up on The Design Recharge Show

Rapid Recharge is a monthly segment (sometimes twice a month) and is where I share helpful tips for running your own business, sharing creativity exercises, plus much more. These are short segments that last anywhere from 20 min to 30 min. I also leave time at the end to answer questions from the audience.

More scheduling to come, thanks to the best assistant EVER Ashleigh Barkley for all the awesomeness she does in prepping the schedule and getting our guests lined up.


Colin Tierney // Crayligraphy


Episode 186


This week on Design Recharge I am interviewing Colin Tierney. Colin runs a design firm that specialized in hand lettering, calligraphy, and branding. But he gets really jazzed about helping other people. He has a course that steps you into lettering in a simple and beautiful way. Colin started drawing with Crayola markers a few years ago and found it to be easier for students in his workshops and budding lettering artists to learn if they used a Crayola marker. He coined the term Crayligraphy which is the art of calligraphy with a Crayola. Sign up for his free guide at and work through lesson one before the interview on Wednesday.

If you have been wanting to tap into hand lettering or improve your lettering then this show is for you.

Here is how to get in touch with Colin:
