The Wombles once sang “…making good use of the things that we find, things that the every day folk leave behind” – Dustin Lee of RetroSupply Co has kind of been doing this with old vintage packaging and Americana. He’s made a business from creating first class design resources to replicate that look of old. I chat to Dustin about our joint love of old treasures, what we love about them and how we find them. This is part of a retro design trilogy – it started with Bill Rose, author of Junk Type, in episode 34 LISTEN HERE and I also interviewed graphic designer and author, Aaron Draplin, on The Vectorgenerians Podcast LISTEN HERE

In the final episode of our ‘4 Weeks of Photoshop Experts’ series we talk to YouTube expert and creator of the highly successful Photoshop Training Channel, Jesús Ramirez. We’ve known Jesús a few years now and if anyone knows how to build a training business on YouTube it’s him. He shares his background, his work ethic and his tips on how to build and sustain a business and YouTube channel with over half a million subscribers!
Continuing our theme of talking to Photoshop experts, this week Glyn chats to Photoshop and 3D guru, Corey Barker. Corey was one of the original “Photoshop Guys” at KelbyOne and is a Photoshop Hall of Famer. Corey now runs his own online training company teaching Photoshop, Dimension and 3D with his Master FX platform. Corey talks to Glyn about creativity and staying on top of your game, experimenting and discovering new techniques.
Last week we spoke to the godfather, this week we speak to ‘The Photoshop Guy’ Dave Cross. Both Glyn and Dave have learned so much from people such as Dave since their introduction to Photoshop and continuing our quest to interview the very people who have helped us we bring you our episode with Photoshop Hall of Famer, author and instructor (ex-KelbyOne/NAPP) Dave Cross.
For over 28 years Dave Cross has been helping photographers and creative professionals get the most out of their Adobe software. Since1987, Dave has taught Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign to thousands of users around the world. He has a Bachelor of Education, is an Adobe Certified Instructor and is a Certified Technical Trainer. Dave has taught for Adobe, at Photoshop World, the Texas School of Photography, Adobe MAX, Imaging USA and at numerous corporate locations. Dave has written many articles and multiple books, co-hosted Photoshop User TV and has taught online courses for Kelby One, Creative Live and Photoshop Cafe. He offers online training at learningphotoshop.cc.
Dave has taught Photoshop in every state in the United States, throughout Canada and in Europe, consistently earning rave reviews. Dave is well-known for his engaging style, his humor and his ability to make complex topics easy to understand. In 2009 Dave was inducted into the Photoshop Hall of Fame, and in 2016 and 2017 was named a MAX Master Instructor.
Glyn and Dave return from Adobe Max in Los Angeles and give you an update about the event, the great people they met and also dealing with some very negative online comments about Photoshop CC2019. On episode 44 we chat to Photoshop legend Bert Monroy, recorded at Adobe Max 2018.
This week Glyn interviewed a friend from his school days, Nathan Black. Nathan was the kid that everyone wanted to be: good looking, tough, he had muscle, all the girls chased him..he had it all. However in later life has had serious physical and medical illness and it’s through his strength of character and positivity he’s alive today! No matter what you’re experiencing in life have faith that it will work out. Good times are ahead, just stick in there as Nathan has because through darkness there is light!
Following on from the Lenny Terenzi episode, Dave and Glyn got chatting about friendship and relationships in business and life and how to make sure you know how to balance and manage them to the best possible outcome. Not all decisions in life are a ‘yes’ but quite often the ‘no’ isn’t always a negative. Hopefully after listening you’ll find a way of making sure your friendships stay strong and your business continues to grow with their support and help.
