About the Show

This is BizCraft, the podcast about the business side of web design, recorded live almost every two weeks. Your hosts are Carl Smith (@carlsmith) of nGen Works and Gene Crawford (@genecrawford) of UnmatchedStyle.

Episode Overview

In this episode of BizCraft Carl was visiting Columbia for an AIGA South Carolina event. We took advantage of his time and recorded a live/in-person BizCraft. We haven’t done one of these since our 3 live shows in 2012. Good beer + us = silliness. Give it time (or fast forward the first 2 minutes – we start off kinda drunk…)

We talked about:

The Myth of the Design Studio Turned Product Company
How a remarkable story of a small design studio unwittingly drove an industry to madness.
By Richard Banfield at

Mostly we delved into our own failed “products” – also Gene is terrible at pouring beer.

Culture as a recruiting tool, at Netflix.
Netflix Slideshare
Carl: What they say is interesting, why they say it on slideshare is more interesting. 🙂

More stuff in between, watch the video man!

Beers from the end of the show

Gene & Carl shared a big bottle of Tripel Karmeliet
Which is the best beer in the WORLD!!!!

Give us a review?
