This is an audio version of my website, adamstoner.com. About Adam Ayrton Stoner I graduated with 1:1 BA (Hons) in Radio Production from the University of Gloucestershire in 2016 and have been producing radio, digital, and design content for the UK's children's radio station, Fun Kids, ever since. I'm interested in minimalism, sustainability and the environment, and the impact of technology on people and the planet. I write about (and talk about on this podcast) a mixture of things including technology and projects I'm working on, as well as hold conversations with people I find influential. You can find out what I've been up to at the end of each month – including what I've been reading, writing about, and listening to – by subscribing to this podcast and to my monthly email newsletter, Recently at adamstoner.com.

    I've raved about Standard ...

    Everyone has their trade. Everyone needs their tools.

    I'm one of those arty-farty media types that calls themselves a creative.

    Ask any creative what software is imperative to their work and Adobe Creative Cloud will be top of their list, period. There’s not much worth quibbling about here – everyone uses these tools and for good reason: they’re brilliant. I predominantly use Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator.

    Since mid-January, I’ve been replying to 100% of my emails. Every single one. It’s something I gleamed from Derek Sivers who over the past ten years has replied to 200,000 emails from 86,000 people – including ones from me. Thanks, Derek.
