siedah-mitchum-300

This week, I had the pleasure of interviewing Siedah Mitchum, a WordPress web designer, entrepreneur, and the creator of Inspiring Black Designers.

We chatted about some of her mentors, talked about what inspires her work, how Marie Forleo’s B-School helped transform her business, and a lot more. Her mission to inspire other designers to have a bigger voice is something we both share, and Siedah makes a big announcement, so you’ll definitely have to listen and find out what it is!

Lebogang also gives some great advice for up and coming designers and talks about how the business community in Johannesburg helps her grow her business!

david-yarde-300

This week’s interview is with David Yarde, a web designer and developer, and co-founder of the creative strategy and branding firm Sevenality.

We talked a little bit about branding, discussed which brands are getting it right (and which aren’t!) and talked about how to succeed being an introverted person of color, and how that can be misconstrued.

David is a prime example of someone who has used design to change his life, and I think you’ll really be inspired by his story and his advice for young designers.

Kevin Karanja

Kevin Karanja has an unbridled passion and enthusiasm for design that is infectious! We first heard about Kevin last year on eNCA when they did a profile about his font Charvet. Since then Kevin, hasn’t rested on his laurels. The young self-taught motion graphics designer’s work has even made the front page of Behance. I really think you’ll be inspired by Kevin’s work and his unique approach to his work.

Chris Barker

You may remember Chris Barker from last week’s interview with Brandy Spain. Chris’ design work has graced the cover of magazines — literally! We talked about how he came into design through print work, his plans for creating a platform for Black gay men (print and online) and the importance of representation in the design industry.
