Dave Franzese and Mark Richard Miller are celebrating the 10th anniversary of their creative studio Dark Igloo. Host Justin Gignac (@justingignac) invites the duo into the studio to reflect on the past decade of creating work that's drenched in humor and nostalgia. They discuss their mission to do 50% of projects for themselves (like Bored Game and Contact Us) and 50% for clients like Bonnaroo, Nike, Dig Inn, and most notably, GIPHY.
Their conversation touches on topics from '90s nostalgia, what we absorb from our parents, and how having children has changed their perspective on both work and play.
In this episode, you will learn that every project, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant, is an opportunity to build a relationship that could change your career in the future. And that passion, enthusiasm, and play are self-perpetuating and worth prioritizing.
