Show Notes

In this episode, Jay and Cherie get into it with seven questions from you! They talk about everything from the key role of premise development (you knew we’d go there!), to why slack in your production process is really helpful, to the benefits of hosts playing the role of explorer rather than expert, and more.

Wireframe: Fonts as People (ft. Khoi Vinh and Dominic Girard)

When’s the last time you attended an audio-only house party populated entirely by personified versions of fonts? Actual typefaces like Arial and Times New Roman speaking at you like real life people? Imagine how obnoxious Comic Sans sounds… Welcome to the ambitious world of Wireframe, a podcast from Adobe and Pacific Content. Inside today’s episode, Jay speaks with Khoi Vinh and Dominic Girard, two of the three hosts of Wireframe, a show with a unique eye toward helping design professionals and the design-curious, fostering a new appreciation for the craft while demonstrating how design impacts the world around you. Khoi and Dominic breakdown the nitty-gritty with Jay, ranging from logistics between hosts and the brandteam, what it means to be a podcast host versus a public speaker, and tricks for transforming show guests into actors. Wireframe is not a show that’s afraid to reach. Khoi Vinh, named one of the most creative people in business by Fast Company, is Senior Director of Product Design at Adobe. His co-host Dominic Girard is a showrunner from Pacific Content, a podcast production company which helps make Wireframe as well as shows from some of the world’s top brands like Dell, Charles Schwab, Atlassean, and Facebook.
