For the second of our Nusii Interviews I spoke with Marketing Director Jake Jorgovan. Jake is an extremely talented guy who over the years has worn many hats...Today he's an author, teacher, mentor, illustrator, designer and much more. So grab a coffee, sit back and listen to Jake's story.
Hello and welcome to the first in a series of interviews that henceforth shall be know as "The Nusii Interviews". Today I spoke to Becca Eisenhauer and Morgan Hauck who are both project managers over at Lemonly. Lemonly is a digital agency based in South Dakota in the US and they've worked with some huge clients. They've teamed up with companies such as LEGO, Salesforce, Marriott Hotels and more recently Entrepreneur Magazine. They specialise in visual data, otherwise known as Infographics, and I managed to catch up with them both this morning to have a quick chat...
I recently interviewed Ilise Benun of Marketing Mentor. Ilise has worked with creative professionals for over 25 years and offers fantastic insight into the thought processes of creative folks like you and me. In our audio interview we focus on proposals and the importance they play in our businesses. Ilise tells us; What makes a great proposal great, and how can you skip the newbie mistakes that so many of us have made.
If ever there was an example of a design entrepreneur, then Marie Poulin is that example. She's already enjoyed a successful freelance career, working with clients that most would give parts of their anatomy to collaborate with. But now Marie is embarking on a different path, the lesser traveled road of products. Marie recently took the time to tell us all about it. Grab a coffee and enjoy the interview.
A couple of weeks ago I spoke to interaction designer Richard Child. Richard has spent the last year working at one of Spain's largest startups. He's recently branched out on his own under the moniker of Grid North Design. Richard talks about the importance of referrals, time management, and understanding your clients' core problems.
This week I had the pleasure of chatting with Laura Williams of Laurium Design. Laura told me about her struggle with turning down work, establishing client ground rules and how a fundamental shift in her proposal writing process wins her more and better projects.
This week I talk to Maurice Cherry of 3eighteen media. Maurice is a busy man, when he's not running his consulting agency he's running a podcast, blogging, teaching and being a stand up guy. He's was also Nusii's very first customer!
This week we spoke to Linda Misiura of Ruby Red Design Studio. Linda is a designer who has roots in journalism and can lend her hand to both Web and Print design. Linda took time out of her busy schedule to talk with us about how she works, finds clients and deals with winning proposals.
I was recently interviewed by the guys over at Startup Catchup. I spoke about the origins of Nusii, why we built it and and where we see it going. Check out the interview.
