We’re back in the Caribbean this week and talking with Djuvane Browne, UI designer and owner of One Great Studio in Kingston, Jamaica. If you’re a freelancer and looking to level up in 2017, then you will want to hear what Djuvane has to say!

Djuvane gives me a quick rundown on an average day at his studio, and shares the one secret that transformed his business to where it is today. We also talk about the design scene in Kingston, the notion of a “Caribbean aesthetic”, and what he would be doing if he didn’t become a designer. Djuvane says that you’ll never know what will work until you try, so hopefully his words will inspire you to do bigger things!

I’m so glad I had the opportunity to speak with Chad Brown. Aside from his own studio, Chado Creative, he also owns the nonprofit organization Soul River Inc. and has his own apparel line! On top of all of this, Chad’s an adventurer at heart.

We start off talking about how he got started in design, what it means to him to be a designer today, and then Chad shared his backstory of being in the military and how those experiences shaped him and helped him to where he is today. I really want you to listen to what Chad says when he talks about inspiration, because it really gets to the heart of what I think all designers struggle to overcome. Thanks to Chad for opening up and sharing his story, and thanks to Douglas Davis for the introduction!

If you’ve hung out in our Slack community for any amount of time, chances are you’ve encountered Paul Anthony Webb. (You might have also seen him rocking some of our merch too!) Paul’s curiosity for tech and design, along with his extensive project work, definitely grabbed my attention. Having him come on the show was a no-brainer!

We started off our conversation talking about how Paul first got into design, and from there we talked about his process for coming up with new ideas and creating new projects. And if you’re up for a little 80’s nostalgia, we go there as well. Paul feels like anything is possible on the web, so I hope this interview inspires you to feel the same way!

Get ready for a great conversation this week as I talk to Anne H. Berry, assistant professor of graphic design at Cleveland State University. I’ve been familiar with Anne’s work for years; her writing at Goshen Commons about diversity and design gave me a lot to think about in the early days of Revision Path. And when she reached out to me to talk about what I was doing, I knew I had to have her on the show!

We start off by talking about her current work teaching at CSU (including a concentration on typography), and from there we discuss the proliferation of Black caricatures throughout the ages and how those inform our current day perceptions and stereotypes. Anne also shares her thoughts on the role that designers should play now, and gives some of her hopes for 2017. I think you’re going to get a lot out of this week’s episode!
