Timothy Goodman is constantly trying to find meaning in his work. But what defines meaning? He believe’s the greatest joy he can have as a designer is connecting to another human through his work and words. After working in publishing, branding, and tech, he now spends his days drawing, writing, and making weird stuff for the internet and for clients all over the world. He tries to approach design as a practice, not as a profession. Join Timothy as he talks about where he’s been, where he’s at, and how he’s trying to redefine what it means to work in this industry.
