In many ways, putting your work out there is easier than ever. A visual artist can easily upload work to Instagram, a musician to Spotify, a filmmaker to YouTube, and the outlets go on. But in many ways, it has also become more difficult. The ease of these tools have allowed everyone else to do the same. So how to stand out? How to make people notice? What about finding ways to work with people you respect and admire? What about finding ways to get media outlets to cover what you are doing?
This is a topic many creatives are squeamish about, but the answers to these questions don't have to be complicated. When I spoke to Chad Manzo, it became clear that forming these connections was simpler than it seemed. Some of you may be familiar with his work. He has worked with artists like Urbandub, Taken by Cars, Faspitch, and more recently Mandaue Nights. His work has been published in Hypebeast and Highsnobiety to name a few. It's clear that it takes a little more than just great work to get these connections.
In this episode, Chad talks about how these connections happened, how he goes about his work, and how he juggles multiple disciplines like music, graphic work and running clothing brands. And he recommends a ton of talented creative people. Looking for music to listen to? For artists to follow? Listen to the episode and check the shownotes.
