Ross Barber-Smith, Electric Kiwi – Episode 75

Indie musician’s web designer Ross Barber-Smith was studying Popular Music Performance at the UHI Millennium Institute in Perth (Scotland) with an aim to become a working musician when an assignment building a website to promote a band showed him something he’d enjoy even more.

Hot out of university, Ross founded his own business, Electric Kiwi, in 2011. Since then he’s been designing web sites and album covers for independent bands and musicians. He’s levered the Internet to get work from clients across the world, and he gets to pick and choose the clients he’ll most enjoy working with. Not only that, he’s co-host of a video podcast, Bridge the Atlantic, featuring chats with musicians and creatives!

Listen in for a great chat about starting your own firm, managing a weekly schedule and the trap of niceness!
