Welcome to Works In Process w/ George Garrastegui, Jr. / Ep 26


Doing quality work takes time:

Like I look at my portfolio now, I'm like, oh yeah, this is, it's really taken me a few years to get here. (as a designer,) you're building a different type of equation almost every single time.
There are so many other opportunities to really experiment and play, but as long as you're building out an interesting system.

That’s my guest, Rich Tu :

In this episode of Works in Process, host George Garrastegui Jr. chats with Rich Tu to discuss his First-Gen podcast, Mini Copper collaboration, and the MTV Music Video Awards exhibition. Rich also hosts the Webby Honoree podcast First Generation Burden, which focuses on the intersectionality and diversity within the creative industry. He is also the co-founder of the Colorful Grant with the One Club, dedicated to creating opportunities for early-stage BIPOC creatives. Rich graduated from the SVA Illustration as Visual Essay program.

In our conversation, Rich talks about his ability to turn his experiences into new ones by connections, collaboration, and his creative network. Finally, he shares why he created the First-Gen podcast and why James Cameron is an inspiration…

It was great to have an in-person conversation at CUNY’s NYC College of Technology and vibe off each other energy. Enjoy!
