List of Graphic Design Podcasts on Topics Graphic Design, Web Design, Typography and More

Podcasting, is a radio show like production that is typically listened to on an iPod (hence the ‘pod in podcasting) or other audio player that supports mp3 . Many of us don’t realize that there are many podcasts on graphic design as well as many other topics. I have found a load of design related podcasts that I am sure will peak your interests. Just think of it as radio shows geared towards you and your love of design. You will even find Podcasts on Photoshop, Illustrator, Typography, Freelancing, as well as Web Design and Graphic Design. Podcasting is not unlike time-shifted video software and devices like TiVo, which let you watch what you want when you want by recording and storing video, except that podcasting is used for audio and is currently free of charge. Note, however, that this technology can be used to push any kind of file, including software updates, pictures, and videos.

Below you will find a large list of graphic design related podcasts. Enjoy!

Be A Design Group

Be A Design Group is a podcast / blog for graphic designers. It was created in March of 2004 by Adrian Hanft and Bennett Holzworth. In their relatively short history, they have grown to be one of the most widely read graphic design podcasts around. Their authors are all practicing designers, and that is the main audience that they write to. None of them are celebrities, and you probably wouldn’t even recognize their work if you saw it. Their belief is that to be a great designer you must be an active growing designer. That means that they don’t know all the answers, but they are enthusiastic about figuring things out. They expect that their ideas are going to be challenged, and enjoy nothing more than a passionate debate.

Boag World

Boagworld began as the personal blog of Paul Boag, where he mainly discussed web design issues. However, Paul quickly discovered that writing was hard work and so turned to the emerging medium of podcasting.

Be A Design

Be a Design Group is an invitation to all people to participate in design. It is a place where designers can test new ideas, share observations, and comment on cultural trends. Their definition of design is intentionally broad so that the subject matter of their posts can be diverse and unlimited.
