My guest this week is Lauren Hom, a designer and letterer known for her bright color palettes, playful letterforms, and quirky copywriting. She has created work for clients like Starbucks, Google, AT&T, YouTube and TIME Magazine. And has been recognized by Communication Arts, the Type Directors Club, the Webby Awards, and so many others that I can’t even. She is also the author of the ever-so-popular popular blog and book: Daily Dishonesty.

On this episode we dig into:

  • What it means to suck at something, and how to embrace it.
  • How to work with fear.
  • How a career in design can evolve and take shape in different ways.
