I have listened to every episodes of Design Matters with Debbie Millman. One of the episodes I bookmarked is the one with Scott Stowell. I really enjoy hearing from people in different fields than the high tech industry in which I work.
Scott talked about how as a small child, he learned the craft of book making and color separation from his watching his parents. At an young age, he was able to do color separation, which really made him stand out in the school newspaper and in his first internship or job. His interview reminded me of how important it is to ask for something you want, even though you might night have 100% of the skill to do it. (I know it’s random)
