Building a brand is more than just having a nice logo. It's about the process of research, discovery and analysis that goes into understanding a business or individual's needs and who they are most trying to target. The end result should be a beautiful visual identity and on-point messaging that lasts well into the future. In this episode we chat with Jain Karan, the CEO & Founder of Magfirst, a Publication Design Agency, and Enamus, a Branding Agency. He shares with us his masterful understanding of Branding & Identity, and how to properly approach the process, delivering information that is illuminating for aspiring Brand Strategists and businesses alike.

Many people are being struck with startup fever in recent years, and people from all disciplines are unexpectedly finding themselves gravitating towards this fast paced and innovative arena.
Recently we had the opportunity to be on a panel at CalArts, where we spoke to students about how to transition from being an artist, to being a part of the tech-heavy startup world. We also discussed the importance of understanding and implementing UX and UI when creating a digital product.
In this episode, Zach and I have a roundtable discussion with the 3rd member of the CalArts panel discussion, Damjan Krajacic (the founder of the design studio ActiveColor), continuing our conversation on these topics.
With technology innovation moving at the speed of light, devices we have grown accustomed to are now moving farther away from visual design and moving more towards Artificial Intelligence run interfaces. This is starting to reduce the way and capacity in which we interact and rely on the screens of our devices. Eventually technology will integrate with minimal graphics as we approach more advanced AI and augmented reality (AR) based experiences. What will UX and UI designers create when screen usage diminishes? We discuss our theories and predictions on this topic.
