Hey everyone, we’re Brian and Marshall, and we host Design Details! Design Details is a weekly conversation about design process and culture, and it’s been airing since 2014.

Each week, we interview designers doing meaningful work in the industry, answer listener questions, discuss new product releases, summarize tech events, and share cool things that we think other designers will find interesting.

Every episode we create is mastered and produced by our team, and they deserve to be paid for their work. Until now, we’ve partnered with companies to sponsor the podcast, but our ultimate goal is to be fully listener-supported.

Becoming a patron helps us keep the lights on and produce new content every week. Your support means the world to us, and you’re the reason we can continue to make this podcast.

We’ve tried to structure our tiers in a way that allows you to be more directly involved in the show and helps us to know you better.

Thank you for listening and supporting us. ❤️

BYEEEEEEE
Tiers
Design Detail
$1 or more per month

What is a design without its details? You have our eternal gratitude for listening and supporting the show. Thank you, little eagle eye ❤️

Atomic Unit
$4 or more per month

You are the measurement from which the system is derived. As such, you are the foundation upon which this show is built.


As an Atomic Unit:

  • We'll give you a shoutout on the show.
  • You'll be listed as a supporter on the Design Details site.


8-Point Grid
$8 or more per month

Your contribution, much like the 8-point grid, makes everything we do beautiful and consistent.


As an 8-Point Grid, you'll receive all of the previous tier rewards plus: 

  • After three months at this tier, we’ll include an audio recording of you recommending your very own “One Cool Thing” in a future episode!*


*We have full discretion to make sure your recommendation and audio are appropriate for the show. Be nice 😊

Instance
$24 or more per month

The best designers are strategic in their use of instances to shape a design system into a final product. In the same way, your contributions at this level shape the content of the show itself into something truly powered by the community.


As an Instance, you'll receive all of the previous tier rewards plus:

  • After six months at this tier, we'll critique a project you're working on in a future episode. We'll ask questions and share ideas to improve your work.*


*We have full discretion to make sure your project is appropriate for the show. Be nice 😊

Master Component
$48 or more per month

The source of truth. That from which every decision must flow. The purple border that shines so brightly on our canvas. You are the Master Component, and without you, there would be no Design Details. You provide us with structure, continuity, and a system to shape every decision we make going forward.


As a Master Component, you'll receive all of the previous tier rewards plus:

  • After four months at this tier, join Marshall and Brian for a private 30-minute call to talk about anything you'd like. We'll critique a project, review your portfolio, give product feedback, clean up your design files, or anything else!


Golden Microphone
$1,000 or more per month only 2 left

You care deeply about the design community and want to support us in serving it. Your contributions help us keep the lights on, maintain pristine audio, and tighten the edits.


At this tier, we’ll take care of you with:

  • A mention in every future episode of the show with your company name, slogan, and website. 
  • We're going to add your link and logo everywhere that we publish Design Details content online. This includes our show notes, website, and community repository. 
  • We'll provide consultation for your product in a private one-hour session with your design team.


Unicorn
$10,000 or more per month only 1 left

If you’re considering this tier, you seriously have so much money. Please give us some. We’ll use it wisely, promise.


But seriously, if you sponsor the show at this level, you will single-handedly cover our monthly expenses, and then some.


This means that we can produce more original content for listeners, upgrade our gear, and invest in more ways to help the design community. 


In addition to the Golden Microphone tier rewards:

  • Marshall and Brian will organize and host a live podcast recording at your office, anywhere in the US. Seriously. We'll freaking do it.
