Creating for Impact & Leaving a Legacy with Adam Grason

Podcast June 20, 2018 Scotty Russell
He hails from the lush fields of Iowa and is borderline obsessed with pizza, his cats and outer space.

From the outside looking in, we tend to think the rockstar creatives we look up to are living a perfectly curated life through the social media lens. However, when you peel back the curtain, things aren’t always what they seem.

We all deal with adversity whether you see it or not. At the end of the day, it’s about how you respond.

Are you the type of person who cowards in a corner when you take an L? Or are you the type of person who dusts yourself off and takes the blow to the chin as a learning experience?

It all boils down to a choice.

Interview with Adam Grason on Timed/Edition

Creating Something That Lasts

Queue today’s guest: branding, design, and Illustrator Goliath Adam Grason of Grason Studio out of Orlando, FL.

Adam has crushed projects for design brands like Google, Vayner Media, Dunkin’ Donuts, and Target to name a few. Behind the social media lens, he’s just a normal, down-to-earth, genuine dude who deals with his own adversity as a father, husband, and designer.

In this episode, Adam serves up an enthusiastic and transparent cocktail of topics like:

  • Breaking up with Disney
  • Leaving behind a legacy and creating for impact
  • Putting people over profit first
  • Buying into yourself
  • Plus other face melting value

I have a feeling you’re going to want to take on the world after hearing this one.
