Examining The Modern Creative Workforce and the Ongoing Struggles of Productive People, with Prescott Perez-Fox — The Busy Creator Podcast 80

The Busy Creator Podcast 80 w/Prescott Perez-Fox

Prescott Perez-Fox (@scottperezfox) is an independent brand consultant and designer based in Brooklyn, NY. Following ten years as a scrappy freelancer in New York’s design scene, he’s built a number of eccentric workflows and organisational structures.

This conversation loops and swirls a bit, covering career observations, podcast production, personal productivity struggles, and Prescott’s possible plans for becoming a consultant … and perhaps an agency.

Catch up with Prescott on his crumbly old website, perezfox.com or, um, here on The Busy Creator.
