Q&A: Restaurant critic Brad A. Johnson gives us the recipe for success

If we’re being honest, it seems like Brad A.

Q&A: Irene Kim on learning by doing, her favorite emoji, and finding jobs she never knew existed, camera in hand

At Roadtrip Nation, we’ve been known to harbor some major Instagram crushes. So when we started working on our new book, Roadmap, with Chronicle Books, we fell hard for Visual Content Coordinator Irene Kim’s dreamy, light-filled feed (she’s also killing it running Chronicle’s Instagram). Even more so when we learned that she’s basically made a job for herself as a photographer-designer-Instagrammer-aesthete-storyteller-branding guru by cultivating her interests in school--and out--to find...
