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.
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.
In this week's Ultimate Guide to Proposals series I talk to Nick Hance. Nick is head honcho over at Reenhanced and has some great ideas on proposals and the process behind them. Nick is all about the business, and what better perspective to approach a proposal from.
In this week's ultimate guide to proposals series I talk to Marcus Blankenship. Marcus is former CEO of a successful agency in the States. With 18 years of experience and a $750-million track record of success, I figured he'd be a great guy to help us learn what makes the ultimate proposal.
As part of the research for my new book The Designer's Guide to Proposals I've been interviewing a hand picked bunch of talented folks. People who over the years have refined and nailed their proposal process. Do you want to win more proposals?
