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.
Spoiler alert: nobody dies.

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.
