I interview Chiara Aliotta on the Joomla Beat Podcast to talk about where she gets inspiration in regards to her designer work and gives us a list of great inspiration designer blogs.

Chiara talks about her background and how she got into the design industry. She also talks about influences in her career that have positioned her in the Joomla design industry today. She now has her own design agency called Until Sunday and does work also for Joomla Shack.

I also have a few social media updates in regards to Facebook and a new feature in Instragram.
