What listeners are saying...

design innovation 21st century

Maria has not only hit a nail on the head but found a new nail to hit. Her creative, innovative show is for progressively minded designers who want a place to explore the new possible.

excellent information

It is a spectacular podcast, full of extremely interesting content and an approach to design that helps awaken the creative mind.

This is beyond amazing

Honestly "it's great" isn't enough. This is beyond Amazing, I LOVE the topics mentioned in t he episodes. This is the first time I have listened to someone talking about architecture and design in this particular way. I wish architecture was taught like this everywhere. Truly inspiring!

stop scrolling if you are a designer...

...And just press play! Maria does a great job at tackling aspects of the industry that you just don't hear about everywhere else. Great show!

design on steroids

Innovation doesn't come naturally to most people. We are puppets (if you will) drifting aimlessly and following the masses. Maria Lorena Lehman jolts us back to reality with a clear, no nonsense approach to creativity and design. Awake and lead with this podcast...

Fascinating! 4d design like you've never seen!

Maria Lorena Lehman is brilliant! Her approach to design is multi-dimensional and definitely "outside-the-box". Incorporating behavioral or audio elements into visual design is difficult to explain, let alone, incorporate in one's work ― but Maria flawlessly demonstrates her expertise and unique focus in a way that is comprehensive and understandable. Excellent podcast for any serious designer!

inspiring show

This show has my wheels turning. The ideas and inspiration that come from it are worth the listen. As is, I already unlock ideas when I go for runs, but listening to this as I went for my run this morning, I had to stop and take notes on my phone. Must listen!

fantastic podcast

This podcast takes your creativity to the next level! It's cutting edge and provides new perspectives I haven't thought about before. Keep it coming!
