Series Description

My career—my passion—is entire­ly focused on doing any­thing I can to Empower, Inform, Connect Creative Professionals™. I’m extreme­ly lucky that I’m able to make a liv­ing doing that through writ­ing books and arti­cles and appear­ing at con­fer­ences and in videos and webi­na­rs. I love doing all that, but in all of those activ­i­ties there’s one thing miss­ing—dis­course. In all those media it’s me doing the talk­ing and every­one else the lis­ten­ing, read­ing, or watch­ing. Out of all the dif­fer­ent types of work and projects I do for the cre­ative pro­fes­sion­al com­mu­ni­ty, the most inter­ac­tive is my train­ing and con­sult­ing, but even that is lim­it­ed to cer­tain com­pa­nies and groups, in cer­tain places. I want to have a con­ver­sa­tion with any design­er who has the time to sit down for an hour and talk, no mat­ter where he or she hap­pens to be at the moment.

So, inspired by my friend Mordy Golding’s Fridays with Mordy week­ly webi­nar, I’ve start­ed Tuesdays with Pariah, a Designers’ Discourse.

In these week­ly free web con­nect ses­sions I’ll be some­times instruct­ing in soft­ware like InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, Acrobat, or some­thing else, and at oth­er times talk­ing about the busi­ness of design, such as intel­lec­tu­al prop­er­ty rights for cre­atives, help­ing non-Web design­ers get online, tax con­sid­er­a­tions for free­lancers, and any­thing else that you bring up. Throughout the pre­sen­ta­tion and after, Tuesdays with Pariah are a con­ver­sa­tion where I hope to learn as much from you as you learn from me. Think of it as a bunch of cre­ative folk get­ting togeth­er over vir­tu­al cof­fee and talk­ing, teach­ing each oth­er some­thing new, or debat­ing dif­fer­ent sides of an issue design­ers face.
