Chase sits down with the world's top creators, entrepreneurs, and thought leaders and unpacks actionable, valuable insights to help you live your dreams in career, hobby, and life.
ABOUT THIS EPISODE:
Ben Uyeda stepped away from the award-winning architecture firm he co-founded, as well as an Ivy League teaching position, to develop media companies that deliver affordable designs to the masses.
In the last four years, Ben’s design ideas have reached more than 50 million people and the free designs he gives away are being built on six different continents. Despite the populist and affordable nature of his work, Ben’s designs have been featured in an exhibition and workshop at the Vitra Furniture Museum in Germany. He shares many of his designs on his popular youtube channel, the Modern Maker, as well as his growing collaborations with brands to explore sustainable designs. This episode ranks as one of my my top 5 ever conversation. Why? Ben’s articulation of the creative process, including:
- How and why to start with what you have?
- Building your career through a process of creating larger and more complex projects over time
- The difference between mastery and competency, and how sometimes competency is all you need
- The challenges of scaling creativity
- and much more.
If you’ve either struggled with your hyphenated creative identity or simply need a boost of inspiration, this episode is going to bring you a ton of value.
