BASIC Launches a New Home for the Brandbeats Podcast Series


We’re excited to bring a new experience to our agency podcast series with the launch of our fully responsive Brandbeats website.

Over the past year, we’ve launched Brandbeats, an agency podcast with curated tunes and industry views around the design industry. We created the platform to spark conversation with students, peers, and other like-minded creatives. Each playlist features ten tracks, including one 30 minute thought-leadership discussion. Our conversations are a candid exploration of design topics, branding trends, and experiences we’ve noticed happening in today’s culture. 

The new website provides more information around each episode, including a full summary, list of guest speakers, and interactive show notes. We’ve added subtle animations and smooth page transitions to provide a visual connection for users while they browse between episodes. The fully responsive site is custom built using Craft CMS and includes a contextual audio player that allows you to pick up an episode exactly where you left off. 

“The new Brandbeats site is a fun way for everyone on the team to openly share their thoughts and ideas to the world and encourage an open discussion with our listeners so that we can better understand the progression of design and culture.” said Matt Faulk, BASIC CEO and Executive Creative Director. 

Listen to Episode 07: What does it mean to be a designer, where we talk about job titles, the design Twittersphere, and more. Keep checking back for new episodes delivered each month.
