The Design Domination Podcast

The Design Domination podcast helps graphic designers sharpen their skills and become more business savvy, so they can get more respect and command higher rates.

“As interesting as they might be, most graphic design podcasts center around small talk and filler. Colleen takes a different route. She offers solid, experienced insight combined with highly useful discussions with industry experts. I think this is the only podcast where I’ve actually hit the Pause button to take notes.”
“Colleen’s podcast is the hidden gem every self-respecting designer needs to find. In two episodes, I’ve figured out how to position myself to stand out from crowdsourcing sites and Fiverr, learned what clients who value design look for and how to attract these kinds of people, plus so much more. I can’t wait to dive into more episodes.”
