Our mission is simple: We're here to support fellow creatives on their unique professional journeys.

We’ve been in your shoes. We understand that the path to becoming a professional creative can be long and sometimes overwhelming. Even after formal education, it’s easy to feel lost without guidance on the “why,” “how,” and “who” of the creative world.

We began The Creative Insider to bridge that gap. We’re all about sharing, learning, and building connections. Through our podcast, we explore the journeys of fellow creatives—how they started, the challenges they faced, and their current creative processes. It’s a place to discover, connect, and find your own path to creative fulfillment.

Join us on this inspiring adventure!

Who we are

Georgi Lechtarski

Georgi Lechtarski

Georgi is the voice of The Creative Insider Podcast and social content creator of our duo. His passion started with his accidental discovery of The Joe Rogan Experience and various other podcasts.

When the Covid-pandemic hit Germany in spring 2020, he decided to use the time to start his own podcast. It began with the purchase of a microphone and has led to a pro-like studio at home, occupying one of the larger rooms in the apartment (obviously).

Georgi is an architectural designer with a Master’s degree from the University La Sapienza in Rome. A true European, he was born in Bulgaria and moved to Nettuno, 60 km south of Rome, Italy at the age of eight.

Thanks to the European Erasmus Exchange Program in 2015, he was able to move to Frankfurt, Germany, where he currently lives and works for international and German architecture studios.

Désirée Bambynek

Désirée is the business and brand side of things, as well as the digital creator behind our website and newsletter. She’s been with the podcast behind the scenes since the beginning, reading through podcast scripts for the first episodes in grassy parks when things got started in spring 2020.

Désirée is a strategist and consultant with extensive experience working with the world’s top brands and leading communications agencies. Born in California, she grew up across the USA and France. Eventually coming to Germany, she pursued a dynamic career in branding, marketing and business.

After a year back home on the US West coast, she settled in Frankfurt in 2016 where she later founded think brand play. She is a true multi-hyphenate, exploring and pursuing a wide-range of fields, from multimedia and photography, to writing and production.
