Today I have for you my first full hour with a female designer, Jen Bee.
This interview was recorded prior to the passing of Gary Carlough, co-founder of Edge Studio where my guest today developed her love for restaurant design. He also taught at my alma mater, Carnegie Mellon University. He was a force in the Pittsburgh design community and he will be missed.
PKN vol 17 is this Thursday, April 3, 2014 at the Pittsburgh Filmmakers Melwood Screening Room. Admission is $15 for AIA/AIGA members, $20 for non-members and includes drinks and snacks. Doors open at 7:20, don’t miss it! More details can be found at AIA Pittsburgh’s website, or like the page on Facebook.
Today I talk with Rick Landesberg of Landesberg Design and find out about his early career, including the romance that brought him to Pittsburgh, his long road to becoming a graphic designer and the break that launched his career. But first we catch up with where we left off last season.
UPDATE 03/03: Some text and links have been modified at the request of the interviewee. A previous version of the audio file also had the incorrect introduction, which was confusing when I referred to a pull quote that wasn’t there. All of this has been corrected and the podcast is now completely perfect in every way.

Mark Dietrick sits down with me to talk about Jesuit education, finding his niche in the profession, whether or not automation will phase out architects, and data. Lots of data. Also, I debut a new segment: 3 questions with an architect.
In a special episode of the D:i Podcast I visit the artists in their booths at the Three Rivers Arts Festival. Images of the artwork and links to all the artists’ websites can be found below, in the order they appear on the show.
