It was a true pleasure to talk with Clara and Jonathan about their creative process, how they work together as a creative couple and find time to figure out their work / life balance.
I’ve spoken about Lullaby Theories in a previous podcast but they’re also working on other projects such as Born In A Ballroom, titles for South by Southwest & videos for WebMD. More information on what they’ve done in the past and what they’re currently working on can be found on their Coat Of Arms website.
I have no doubt they’ll continue to create stellar video work for both clients and themselves in the future.
I think you’ll find this conversation particularly inspiring if you’re a creative that’s pulled in a lot of different directions. Listening to how the two of them handle their busy lives and keep their critical inner voices from sabotaging them, was definitely helpful to hear.
Thanks for listening!
This episode was very skillfully made to sound beautiful by the talented Humberto Franco.
