Today on The Dirt, we welcome Jason Pamental from H+W Design in Providence, RI. Jason recently wrote a book on responsive typography (called, appropriately enough, Responsive Typography) and we took the opportunity to grill him on the topic. Tune in to hear Jason drop some knowledge on web type and our responsibilities as designers/developers, and Tim get all curmudgeonly on cyclical topics in web development.

Productizing Your Services

This week on the show we we talk about how to be a better freelancer by productizing your services. On the heals of an article by Robert Williams called Freelance as a Service, we discuss what it means to deliver a service to clients and how to package that up in unique ways. Differentiating yourself with a service-based product can help steer you toward to clients you want, but also away from the clients you don't want.

At Future Insights Live

This week on the show Steve and I talk about our upcoming gigs speaking at Future Insights Live. We go back and forth about each others' topics and attempt to give a preview about what you're in for if you're planning to attend. Steve talks about prototyping in the design process and I continue to yammer on about Environmental Design being the future of experience design. I can confidently say that this is the best episode of any podcast in the history of podcasts.
