Today is our last segment with Christine Herrin, who is a designer and hand letterer who has launched her own line of memory-keeping products. She just recently wrapped up her time as an Adobe Creative Resident and today’s episode is all about her experience.

In the interview, we talk about her specific project and why she proposed it to the Adobe team. We also get into some behind-the-scenes stuff regarding how the residency works, why the public speaking aspect of the residency turned out to be huge for her, what it was like to share her process along the way, and how her experience taught her to be both a creative and a business person.  

Enjoy!

Today we’re hearing once again from designer and letterer Christine Herrin. If you listened to last week’s show, episode 111, you know that Christine’s passion is memory keeping and she’s built a business around designing modern products for those who love to capture and save memories. She also has a very full freelance schedule as a designer and hand letterer and just recently wrapped up her stint stint as an Adobe Creative Resident.

In today’s interview we talk about how travel is essential for jolting her creative brain into action. We also discuss the surprising places she’s found product design ideas in her travels, why she’s okay with both digital and physical types of memory keeping, and how she blends work and travel as a way to see the world and get stuff done at the same time.

Enjoy!

I'm back today with another three-part series and this time I’m talking with graphic designer, hand letterer, and product designer Christine Herrin. You may also know her from her recent stint as an Adobe Creative Resident where she launched her shop, Everyday Explorers Co.

In the interview, we talk at length about memory-keeping and why she feels that capturing bits of life is so important. She also opens up about her decision to move from Manila to San Francisco to go to grad school, why she decided not to finish her advanced degree, and she offers some really great advice about putting yourself in the way of cool people and projects.

Enjoy!
