Vertical Strip Mall: A Decaying Monument to Modern Drive-Through Consumerism

Standing out against surrounding shanties in Caracas, El Helicoide spirals skyward like a modern Tower of Babel. It was designed to be a drive-in shopping center with motorists cruising up and parking in front of stores — a kind of strip mall in the sky. It was in many ways a product of its times:

174: Paul Anthony Webb

If you've hung out in our Slack community for any amount of time, chances are you've encountered Paul Anthony Webb. (You might have also seen him rocking some of our merch too!) Paul's curiosity for tech and design, along with his extensive project work, definitely grabbed my attention. Having him come on the show was a no-brainer! We started off our conversation talking about how Paul first got into design, and from there we talked about his process for coming up with new ideas and creating new projects. And if you're up for a little 80's nostalgia, we go there as well. Paul feels like anything is possible on the web, so I hope this interview inspires you to feel the same way!

How Narrowing Your Positioning Changes Your Agency with Jason Mlicki of Rattleback Agency

We glean huge amounts of information from Mlicki's 15 years of experience in his agency (that has been around for 44 years!). We dive into how Rattleback made decisions around their positioning, and how trying to nail your positioning is always a moving target. We discuss why he chose to focus on a professional services niche, which led to many other questions: - what services are you providing to a narrow niche and is it perceived as more valuable just because you are niched? - does your agency experience increase when you narrow your focus? - does your value and price also go up as your experience goes up? - are tools/philosophies (like Hubspot) required for agencies practicing an inbound marketing strategy? - how can you 'deconstruct' thought leadership content into a digestible website? - how can you get your clients to read long-form content? - how could an agency remain a generalist in this day and age? - how does a focus change your revenue model (from project to recurring revenue)?
