27 - Daniel Ekelund: Persistence Produces Progress
Play • 50 min

This week I spoke with designer Daniel Ekelund. We talked about his journey into design, how he's merging his passion for sports with his design career, and his design that whatever you do, you have to be persistent. From creating illustrations of NBA players in his free time to working on album covers for Leonard Cohen, Daniel has created a wide range of designs in his career. Starting in the field of architecture, Daniel realized that he was more passionate about graphic design and began to pursue that. Daniel creates and shares a lot of work so make sure to check him out on social media and follow him to see more of his work. You can find links to all the ways you can connect with him below:
