Type surrounds us: it’s on posters, screens, packages and billboards. Yet when you look at who created these typefaces, you find very few Black type designers. We wanted to get a little perspective on the question – and some possible answers – so we spoke to type designers, Kwesi Amuti and Tré Seals. (You may remember Tré from our interview with him back in April.)

Revision Path is proud to sponsor the 2017 Black in Design Conference! If you’ve been listening to the show for any amount of time, you know that I have talked about this event a lot. I attended the 2015 inaugural event, and it was so inspiring to be in the presence of so many Black designers and students.
This year’s event takes place October 6-8 at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design in Cambridge, MA. The theme is “Designing Resistance, Building Coalitions”, and it will explore how designers are advocates and activists, highlight the contributions made by Black designers, and broaden the definition of design.

It’s frustrating to be asked to work for free when you have bills to pay. There were times early in my career when people would ask me to contribute my skills to “a great opportunity”…but for no money. It took time to learn to navigate these situations, and I’ll share some ways to handle these requests.
We’re coming up on our 200th episode this month, and we want you to be a part of it!

Thanks to all of you who have joined and participated in our Slack community! There have been some fascinating conversations going on there, and we had a really nice AMA series last year that introduced top experts in law, entrepreneurship, and design to our growing audience.
As part of our ongoing commitment to improving our Slack community, we’re instituting a few changes.
