Resourceful Designer - A Graphic Design Podcast

Resourceful Designer offers a graphic design podcast aimed at helping home based graphic designers and web designers streamline their business.

Each week, I shares advice, tips and resources to help you with all aspects of running a successful graphic design business.

But who am I?

I'm Mark Des Cotes, a graphic designer and web designer. I've been designing for over 25 years and I've been running my own successful graphic design business for more than 10 years. I thought it would be fun to host a graphic design podcast and share some of the knowledge I've gained over the years. If you want to know more about me please visit the About page.
