Need Inspiration? Read Intimate Interviews with Amazing Creatives


In the beginning (2011), Ryan and Tina Essmaker were simply committing their evenings and weekends on a passion project, working out of their small apartment in southeastern Michigan and listening to the sound of coyotes howling in the nearby woods.

Their passion? Producing The Great Discontent, an online magazine featuring interviews with creative powerhouses such as Stefan Sagmeister, Maria Popova, Jeffrey Zeldman, and Seth Godin.

Their blood, sweat, and tears has resulted in a stunning site that’s perfect for giving you a boost of inspiration, just when you need it.

Our congrats to the Essmakers, who (with the backing of a Kickstarter campaign) have both have left their full time jobs to take their online work to the printed page.

It just goes to show what passion and hard work can accomplish!
