About Design Recharge

Design Recharge is a weekly web show and podcast devoted to inspiring, connecting, and educating designers.

It is my goal to enable designers, illustrators, and typographers to connect with other designers, to grow their businesses, to be successful and more knowledgeable about design and the business of design.
