We’ve teamed up with Inspiring Black Designers to spotlight even more brilliant creative talent in the design community. This week, IBD spoke with web designer and Internet marketing coach LaShanda Henry. Here’s a brief snippet from that interview.
Alesha Randolph kicks off this month’s interviews! This creative professional calls Washington DC home, and we talked about her path to becoming a designer, giving back to the design community, representation, and her current project AllyElleCards, which has been featured on Complex.com, Style.MTV.com, and the Huffington Post.
Alesha has well over a decade of experience in the design industry and now that she’s out on her own, you’ll definitely hear more from her and about her work!

I first ran across Derek Robinson in Black Designers United, a private Facebook group for Black and minority designers. Derek’s located here in Atlanta, and I got the chance to talk with about how he got started in the industry and about his company, Heavybrea Multimedia. Derek also gives some great advice for aspiring front-end engineers out there. Take it away, Derek!
Starting in March, we’ll be saying goodbye to our long form text interviews and focusing solely on podcast interviews. You’ll still be able to listen to the interviews here on the website or on SoundCloud, and soon we’ll be on iTunes.
