Sponsors of this Episode

This episode was brought to you by The Arsenal’s Cyber Monday deals taking place from November 29th to December 2nd. For more information on that, go to Arsenal.GoMedia.us and sign up for the Arsenal newsletter for an even better deal than what we’ll have on the site.

And, we’re also celebrating the 3rd year of On The Map CLE on Friday, December 6th, 2013 at the Go Media Studios. You can RSVP for the event on the Go Media Facebook page. OnTheMapCLE.com is a video series featuring the people and places that make Cleveland a creative, culturally rich, and inspiring place to live and work.

What We’re Thankful For in 2013

Where We’re Finding, Digesting, and Sharing Design Resources

BlkSmith Design Texture

  • Blksmith Texture Collection
  • SIXTEENxTWENTY textures
  • Dribbble – A design sharing and feedback social network suggested by AJ216 in the Live Chat
  • VectorScribe - Better corner manipulation in Illustrator
  • Feedly - The best replacement for Google Reader
  • Pocket - An easy way to save your reading for later.
  • Sidebar.io – A daily curated resource list
  • Buffer – Share information at will, but spreads your posting throughout the day so your followers aren’t bombarded with link after link.
  • IFTTT – Put the internet to work with you. Bryan uses it to email an article to him every time he saves a post for later in Feedly. Jeff uses it to collect and organize YouTube videos in Pocket when he wants to watch them later.
  • Audible – Audio books with a great app.
  • Steven Pressfield’s The War of Art – Suggested by @AngryCity in the Live Chat

How We’re Collaborating, Note Taking, Planning

  • Dropbox – Easy File Backup, Online Access, and Sharing
  • Google Drive – We use Drive to share proposals, client edit notes, and collaborating on show notes and sales material.
  • DocsFlow – An add-on within Google Drive that connects a Google Doc with a InDesign file, allowing us to edit and collaborate on a proposal, and have it appear in a well-designed InDesign file.
  • Evernote – A cross-platform note-taking app suggested by @TheSeanRHughes in the live chat.
  • Outlook – Bill uses the built-in task list and calendars to track time spent on projects and what he needs to get done.
  • Google Keep and Calendar – Bryan does the same thing, but in Google’s ecosystem.
  • OmniFocus - Jeff’s task list of choice.
  • Prevue – A design critique app suggested by @AngryCity in the live chat.

How We Keep Focus As We Design, Write, And Make Things

  • Freedom – Jeff uses this to make sure he doesn’t get distracted while under a deadline. It shuts off his internet for a time period you set.
  • FocusBooster – A Pomodoro Technique app for Windows.
  • OMM Writer - A minimal writing app suggested by @AngryCity in the live chat.
  • 750Words – Another distraction-free writing app suggested by @danieldehart
  • Google Docs – Where Bill, Bryan, and Jeff do a majority of their writing.
  • WordPress – Since a majority of our writing goes onto a blog or a website, we take advantage of WordPress’s built-in visual editor in full screen mode.

Where We’re Finding Inspiration In Everything We Do

  • Fizzle – Jeff has been reading their blog and listening to their podcast about business ideas and training.
  • Nathan Barry’s “Authority” – Jeff’s a big fan of his book: “Authority” and his honesty.
  • DeviantArt - It’s not talked about a lot, but we still go here for illustration inspiration.
  • Adventures in Design – Bryan loves the way they do their podcast and how they talk about their business and their struggles and successes as designers.
  • The Audacity to Podcast – A podcast and blog about podcasting.
  • TedTalk about QuadCopters – Bill really liked this talk and how people were using these small devices to do really big things.
  • WMC Fest Speaker Videos – WMC Fest 4 Speaker videos are finally being released.

Honorable Mentions

  • NotePad++ – The BEST code writing app on Windows, according to Bryan and the rest of the development team.
  • Brackets.io – Another code writing app suggested by Andrew in the live chat.
  • Google Chrome’s Developer Tools – Bryan loves designing in-browser like a boss.
  • Zurb Foundation – An advanced, responsive, front-end prototyping and development framework which works with Compass, Sass, and magic. Lots of wonderful magic.
  • IcoMoon – We don’t always use images for icons. We use fonts.
  • Optimizely – Simple A/B testing.
  • ClickyStats – Realtime stats to see how users are interacting with your content.
  • AddThis – Social sharing made easy with click tracking.
  • Google Hangouts – Not just for a friendly video call. We’ve recorded podcast interviews with it, we’ve streamed the podcast video to the live chat, and we’ve even trained clients how to use WordPress using it’s built-in screen sharing functionality.
  • Spotify – Unlimited playlists of music to get into the groove with.

In this episode, Jeff and Bill get together to talk about how everyone’s been doing now that WMC Fest 4 is over. We also look forward to next year and what things need to change as Jeff’s vision continues to evolve. And shortly after WMC Fest, Bill launched his book: Drawn to Business. Since the launch, we’ve received some overwhelming feedback and talk about how we’re responding to some of the more negative comments.

Quick Tip: Form A Relationship With A Lawyer Before An Emergency

It’s inevitable that you’ll one day find yourself in a position where you need legal help to get out of a situation. It’s better to make the choice on which legal team to work with when you aren’t in need.

What Go Media Has Been Up To

  • WMC Fest 4 is over. Lots of great memories. Did it change your life?
  • Speaker videos will be released in bundles once we start getting them done. Videos are being put together by students at Virginia Marti.
  • WMC Fest 5 is already in planning. Less bands and less stages is currently being discussed.
  • Should WMC Fest be turned into it’s own non-profit business? Or does it require Go Media’s cashflow to continue to put it on?
  • Bill’s Drawn to Business book was finally launched for a limited audience.
  • One of the major issues we ran into is a “perception problem”. Many saw it as an e-book, so the price tag just didn’t make sense to most who left us feedback.

Quick Tip: Get negative people out of your life.

It doesn’t matter if it’s an employee with a ton of talent or a customer who’s giving you a lot of money. Negative people affect your entire workflow and overall motivation. One bad employee can bring down the entire office. Time spent with negative people is wasted time.

What Go Media Has Been Up To

  • WMC Fest is this weekend. Seriously. We’re here. And Jeff has been engulfed in every aspect of the fest.
  • We’re looking for volunteers for WMC Fest.
  • The release of Bill’s book will be after WMC Fest. The deadline of selling it at the Fest was great for motivation, but not great for the overall strategy.

An Interview With Simeon Hendrix

creative-south-2013-documentary-premiere-simeon-hendrix

Go Media: Can you tell us a little bit about yourself, your background and why you decided to start this project?

Simeon Hendrix: I toured the US from 2000 – 2009 as frontman for the experimental rock band DOWN-STARES.  I was creating all the artwork for the band, T-Shirts, CDs, posters, etc.  Fell in love with graphic design.  Other’s saw my work, asked me to do it for them, etc.  The band dissolved, I went full time into learning and progressing as a graphic artist.  Through my educational training is how I found out about Go Media in 2010, that led me to Jeff Finley and WMC Fest… I reached out to Jeff Finley last spring before WMC 3, told him I wanted to document his festival, he gave the blessing.

Through last year’s WMC 3 documentary, I met Mike Jones, founder of Creative South, he loved our WMC doc and requested we please go to Columbus to document his Creative South 2013 Festival.  That’s how I found out about Creative South.

We raised $400 for our local Meals on Wheels organization during our campaign to secure funds to create this documentary.  Meals on Wheels provides meals for elderly people who might otherwise not receive a regular meal.

creative-south-2013-the-kitchen-simeon-hendrix

Go Media: What do you want people to feel, learn or take away when they watch your documentary?

Simeon Hendrix: I want people to see what a great time we had in Georgia.  I want people to laugh, be engaged and interested, excited, hyper, joyous, inspired, curious, full of optimism and possibility.  I also what it to pump people up for WMC Fest which is in a couple weeks.  WMC is the father of Creative South and it’s an honor to know these people and interview and learn from and be inspired these who are heros of mine.

Go Media: Any chance of a second documentary when you make the trip up again?

Simeon Hendrix: I feel like this Creative South 2013 documentary IS a sequel to our WMC 2012 documentary.  It was a tremendous honor for Mike Jones to invite us to Georgia, it was an honor to interview Jeff Finley and William Beachy and hear their excitement about the upcoming WMC 4.  I would have loved to make it to WMC 4 to make the TRILLOGY, but it didn’t work out.  I plan to attend CREATIVE SOUTH 2014 as well as WMC 2014.

I love the graphic design community and look forward to growing with it and broadcasting about it for years and years to come.  This is such a warm and welcoming community, we love it.

Go Media: Is there anything else you want people to know about yourself or this documentary?

Simeon Hendrix: We just recently wrapped up on a Mini-Documentary series that chronicled the Historic Undefeated Inaugural Season of the minor-professional football team the Wichita Falls Nighthawks.  That was a great time.  Friends, family and fans can find that series on our YouTube Channel. Stay tuned to SimeonHendrix.com or Simeon Hendrix on Facebook or Twitter for more details on the Creative South Documentary or tune into Creative South on Facebook and Twitter.  Big thank you to Jeff Finley and Mr. William Beachy for the interviews they gave, for letting me guest blog on GoMediaZine.com.  I wish we could be in Cleveland for WMC4, but guys it just didn’t work out this year.  I hope everyone is inspired by the Creative South 2013 Documentary and it gets you so pumped up for WMC4 that you can’t sleep and you stay up all night writing, drawing, singing, and creating.
