Disrupting Design Education With Chris Do

  • Category: Business ModelInterviews

Chris Do has the unusual distinction of building two very different yet highly successful businesses: Blind, a brick and mortar motion design consultancy that thrived in Hollywood for over 20 years and The Futur, his global on-line platform to change how designers learn.

He has some big ideas, a stellar track record and a generous spirit, which is why Jonathan and I were so excited to have him on the show.

We talk big ideas, fear, funding, the founder mindset, how he built his hyper-engaged audience and when to work with others vs. go it alone.

“Here’s the way I approach it: I’d rather not do it than do a mediocre job.” –JS
