A while ago I was put in touch with Nigel Warburton, a philosopher, author and podcaster. I have been a listener of Philosophy Bites for many years and it remains one of my favourite podcasts.
An unsolicited and unused redesign for the original Philosophy Bites podcast
Nigel was in the process of creating a new podcast — Philosophy Sites
— about the places associated with various notable philosophers.
I experimented with a number of designs, trying to avoid something too obvious. For a long time I resisted the green colours you see used in the final design above because it implied trekking through the countryside, which wasn’t what the podcast was going to be about at all. But in the end sometimes the most straightforward designs are the best.
A quick timelapse of me building the Lego Cuusoo ‘Curiosity’ Rover. Or as NASA calls it, the Mars Science Laboratory.
The music is, of course, Mars, the Bringer of War from Holst’s The Planets. This is a public domain version, sped up by me.
