Hey, my name is George Garrastegui Jr. — I design, I teach and I flesh out creative ideas … and now I’m starting a podcast.
Works In Process, the podcast that asks the hows and whys behind the creative work. Creativity is oversaturated with the final results—Whether it be a painting, the words you write, or that elegant piece in your portfolio. We seem to find completed and beautified work across the web, but what steps did it actually take to get there? Talk a ride with me, Designer and Educator George Garrastegui, as I learn from my guests that there’s no one way to being a creative, but endless possibilities fueled by passion, purpose, and of course process.
It’s not always about what you do, but how you do it!
Note to my former geusts:
In 2017, I started A little something to interview the creative people I knew and elevate them and understand their struggles. It was a new creative venture called Works in Process, a podcast. I’ve come a long way in the last four years with the amazing creative people (you) that I’ve been able to interview.
The podcast, the insight, and various ways of working continue to shape my viewpoint of creativity today. Thank you all for trusting me with your stories. Thank you for teaching me alternative approaches. Thank you for starting this journey with me.
