Blather is a raw/uncut design podcast hosted by two "unusual" designers, Praise and Oluwawibe. On here, we talk about design and the less pretty things that don't usually make it to your fancy articles.
In this episode, we continue from where we stopped and discussed how it felt working for and owning an agency. There were little nuggets at the end for agency owners and those starting out, but mostly na vibes and Insha-Allah.
This episode calls out the "passion-designers", the special not-so-uncommon set of designers who do it for the love! The question we discussed is "is passion enough to be a designer in the world today?"
Share your thoughts if you disagree—or agree.
We decided to touch "personal branding" today. Apart from breaking some tables, you might be able to find insights into how to differentiate yourself as a designer beyond your skills. We also have a new outro!
In this episode, Wibe and I talk about what you should consider when charging as a freelance designer or in-house designer. With a little sub here and there, the 55-min long episode explains the quote "there is no right or wrong pricing, there is only fair".

Welcome to Blather!
In this prologue, we talk about how this started, what you should expect and how to pronounce "blather". Were we nervous? Absolutely, and that's what makes it so thrilling!
