While waiting patiently for designers to become available to record their episode of Your Favorite Record, I decided to embark on yet another podcast. One I had been sitting on for almost as long as YFR. A podcast where I chat with brand designers and hear their story and what brought them to their current spot in their timeline.

That podcast is called Name Your Layers and I’m super excited to share it with you all.

Who’s it for?

Anyone really. Designer. Non-designer. Whatever your vibe is. These stories are really fun and I think you’ll enjoy hearing everyone’s background. If not, all good! But thank you for giving it a whirl. TTFN.

Where do I find it?

Wherever you get your podcasts! At launch it’ll be available here on Big Fan of Ideas and on Spotify. And later on Apple Podcasts and more.

Why the name?

Name Your Layers refers to the act of naming your layers while designing. Nothing worse than 8 layers of “Layer 12 Copy Copy” when you’re trying to find the layer you really need to edit at that moment. So the name is an homage to something I highly recommend you do every time you open Photoshop, Figma, Illustrator, etc.

Where do I start?

You can listen to the trailer now and then follow suit in whichever order you’d like. I personally like them all so…

How can I support the pod?

Honestly, just listening to it is enough so thank you for that! But sharing it with your friends and network would be very kind as well. And if you can, be sure to support the small business I shout out in each episode.

Where’s the merch, Allyssa?

It’s coming! I want to make some coffee mugs with the logo because of course I do. So stay tuned for that 🥳

First episode coming this Friday, March 12!

Happy listening!
