About Makeready

On Makeready podcast Duncan Robertson hosts discussions about how designers and other creative professionals make their ideas happen for a living. The show is a forum for discussions about creative career development, professional practices, important career milestones, and finding satisfaction with creative work. These conversations explore and share differing definitions of success, business strategies, philosophies, and practical lessons learned through experience.

Makeready is founded on my curiosity about how others “do it.” It officially began as my MFA thesis project and has continued to grow from there.
