Adventures In Design

Making your dream a reality is the first step on the long road of keeping your dream a reality. Between finding funds to keep things going and generating new users in a marketplace pulling their attention in every which way, ProductionPro continues to revolve around their single source of truth. Alex Libby returns to Adventures In Design to share what a year and a half of fighting the good fight has taught him and how his app idea turned into a dedicated team of people collaborating to further adapt their product towards what the entertainment industry wants. Mark opens the episode letting us all behind the curtain on how he is curtailing these interviews to help everyone stop following the leader and start learning how you can start taking down the walls that are in front of your own challenges. Just like ProductionPro, we are trying to help you perform at the height of your creativity.
