A podcast from two English graphic designers. One from up North. The other one from down South.
They talk about design, illustration, technology, books and pies. Most of the time. More often than not.
Sometimes they might have guests. Sometimes, and more often than not, they won’t. But there will always be pies.
Always pies.
