About Us

SVG Immersion is a podcast that empowers you to passively learn SVG. Each episode is a deep dive in to one SVG concept, designed to supplement and reinforce difficult concepts.The podcast also features conversations with thought leaders in the SVG space discussing what tools and techniques they use, how they'd explain a particular SVG concept if they were teaching a friend, and one free, but valuable resource, they can offer to help you learn SVG.
