Unfinished Business episode 86: ‘Night of the long shadows’ with Jory Raphael

In the second part of our icon designer double bill, this week on Unfinished Business, I’m joined by designer, illustrator the and iconographer behind Symbolicons, Jory Raphael. We talk about how we feel about the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus announcement, the design of the Apple Watch software and whether it looks at home on the watch’s hardware. We discuss Jory’s illustration work including his artwork for the 5by5 podcast network and of course, those long shadows. Finally we talk about making a business from making and selling icons.

This week we’re sponsored by Antetype. Listen to the show for a very special discount just for Unfinished Business listeners, and Macrabbit’s Espresso. Listeners of this show can get a 10% discount by using the coupon code unfinished at checkout.

I’ll be hosting a CSS3 For Responsive Design workshop at Beyond Tellerrand in Berlin in November. Beyond Tellerrand are now offering a 20% discount just to listeners to this show when you use the offer-code unfinished when you buy your ticket. That’ll save you €60.


I’m available for hire to consult on and design products and websites. Based in North Wales, I travel regularly to work with clients world-wide.

Available from January 2020
