It’s Revision Path’s fourth anniversary! We’re celebrating the occasion by taking a look back at some of the memorable guests we’ve had over the years, including Jacinda Walker, Ced Funches, AIGA Medalist Emory Douglas, and more. Plus, we have a special guest near the end of the episode, so make sure you stick around for that.

It has truly been an honor and a blessing to interview all the 200+ Black designers, developers, and creatives that have been on Revision Path. Thanks to all of you who have listened, downloaded, shared, pledged, and spread the word about Revision Path. There’s more coming from Revision Path this year, so keep your eyes peeled for updates! (Gee, I wonder what we should do for our fifth anniversary?)

Our spotlight on Philadelphia continues this week with design strategist and hybrid thinker Natalie Nixon. Natalie has an impressive body of work ranging from fashion to anthropology, and her consulting and research lies at the intersection of creativity and strategy. Aside from her work as associate professor and founding director of the Strategic Design MBA program at Philadelphia University, Natalie is also the editor of “Strategic Design Thinking: Innovation in Products, Services, Experiences and Beyond”.

We touched on a lot of different topics: the importance of strategic design, her experience as a Black woman at the Ph.D. level of design, embracing failure, and much, much more. It’s an honor to speak with someone at this caliber of design, and I think you’ll learn a lot from her words and from her work. Class is in session!

Philadelphia’s own Ron Tinsley is no stranger to the world of design. As the founder of Prophetik Soul Branding + Design, Ron uses his decades of consulting and design experience for “do-gooders, dreamers and optimists”. I think that’s something we could all use more of, don’t you think?

Ron talked about how a twist of fate prompted him to start his design studio, and he walked me through how he tackles projects and his personal design style. We also discussed design organizations, world travel, what he loves about Philly, and whether or not his kids want to follow in his footsteps. Get ready for a really thoughtful and inspiring conversation!

We’re starting off February this year by talking with entrepreneur and visual storyteller Jessica Bellamy. She specializes in creating eye-catching information graphics that are easy to understand and share, which is definitely needed in this current climate of “fake news”.

Jessica talked about her exhibit titled The Black Woman Project, the progressive design scene in Louisville, Kentucky, and how she started her grassroots design studio GRIDS, which is currently working on a project about bringing awareness to the incarceration system. If you’re trying to find someone that cares about her community and helps give back by using design, then look no further! Thank you for all you do Jessica!
