I sat down with Brady the week that Netflix’s Chef Table with Tootsie came out so we jump right into it and about what Snow’s BBBQ and Tootsie means to us.
He’s been in living Texas for 15 years having moved from Costa Mesa(Orange Count) in California for a synthetic turf company doing design work. He moved sight unseen to Georgetown. After large layoffs he went out on his own.
Currently he he has 4 full time jobs which includes doing design work for custom apparel company called Thunderwear. We talk about his connection with Chet Garner(The Day Tripper) and how a Bacon poster he created bridged a friendship with Daniel Vaughn. He ended up doing a map for Daniels Book The Prophets of Smoked Meat. Knowing Daniel and doing work for him led to a book party in Dallas where he met writer and photographer Kelly Yandell(The Meaning of Pie) who was on the board at Foodways Texas. It was this connection that had Brady doing work for Foodways Texas, Camp Brisket, and Barbecue Summer Camp. It is here where he connected with Jess Pryles and has been doing work for her ever since. Mainly the gist of the discussion is that these connections, these friendships, fueled additional connections, friendships, and work.
We talk about his methodology into how he creates designs for clients and what he needs going into it(he asks 20 questions to get a good overall perception). He explains packages and about the current lead time which wonderfully is not too long right now. At the very end we find out where the M. came from in ‘M. Brady Clark’.
