A few weeks ago, I eluded to a new experience that we have been playing around with for a while. Today, we are really excited to announce we will partner with Rosenfeld Media for a series of live events in Dublin, Ireland.

Why are we doing this?

As you know, we are almost entirely voluntarily run, apart from the editing and transcription services of the podcast, we have been financially supporting the development of everything to date.

As a result of this, and wanting to take the podcast to the next level, we need a sustainable revenue model to allow us to grow and provide richer and more meaningful content or a regular basis.

We don’t want to have to sell ads in the middle of the episodes and potentially ruin what we consider to be a very intimate experiences between us. This isn’t about making money for us, this is about sharing, growing and nurturing the craft of HCD and helping it grow well into the next decade. We believe in the altruistic nature of This is HCD.

We believe that these select events allow us to generate ‘just enough’ income to survive and allow us to keep the machine ticking over. But it’s extra cool that we can do this whilst promoting and working with great talent, and connecting that talent to our local communities in NYC, Dublin and Sydney.

Who are Rosenfeld Media

Rosenfeld Media is one of, if not the best providers of design education materials. We could just say books, but Rosenfeld Media is more than that. They epitomise everything that is good about the global design community and we are delighted to be working with them to bring a special live event with the authors of Orchestrating Experiences, Patrick Quattlebaum and Chris Risdon.
