    W hilst we realise that Kern and Burn is mainly focused towards the designers among us, we believe it is a brilliant resource for all creative business owners should be aware of!

    Hosted by Tim Hoover and Jessica Karle Heltzel, Kern and Burn curates and interviews those who have turned their passions into self-made careers and invites them to discuss their perspectives with the rest of the creative community.

    We highly recommend you spend some time browsing through their 100 Days

    of Design Entrepreneurship blog, which houses a collection of interviews from 100 designers and artist from multiple disciplines, all discussing various aspects of running a successful creative business.

We promise that the longer you spend on Kern and Burn the more youll find yourself clicking on the plethora of links in each article to discover more inspiring and wonderful things!
