As a digital creator, you may not even think much about the concept of digital governance. Don’t worry though — this week’s guest, Lisa Welchman, literally wrote the book on digital governance!

Our conversation begins with an overview on the topic, and Lisa describes how she got involved with digital governance. We also get into digital ethics, talk about how companies can apply digital governance to what they do, and a lot more. Lisa also discusses her recent vacation, the things that keeps her inspired and opens up on what she wants to do in the near future. Thank goodness we’ve got experts like Lisa to help decipher concepts like this that are important to our digital lives!

This week’s interview is with none other than the venerable Craig Wilkins. Craig is one of the country’s leading scholars on African-Americans in architecture, and he’s an academic, activist, and author. He can now add one more “A” to his long list of titles — award winner!

I spoke with Craig fresh off his National Design Awards win, and we talked about a number of things — his love for Detroit, what made him get involved in architecture, where he sees design education in the future, why design organizations struggle with diversity, and more. It’s a far-reaching conversation that I think you’ll enjoy regardless of your design discipline. Enough from me though…press play and enjoy the interview!

douglas-davis-1-300

I’ve known about Douglas Davis for years because of his work with HOW Design University. I finally met him in person this year at HOW Design Live, and was delighted to have him come on the show! Douglas stays busy — he’s a former professor at NYU and a current adjunct professor at City College’s Branding and Integrated Communications graduate program, as well as a designer and creative strategist with his own firm called The Davis Group. Now he can add another title to his resume — author! His new book, Creative Strategy and the Business of Design, is a must-have for any designer out there looking to level up their skills.

We started off talking about how he started his creative strategy firm, the inspiration behind writing his book, and what he’s learned from his students over the years. And because this is HBCU Month, we also talked about Hampton University and how they prepared him for furthering his journey and education as a designer. Thank you Douglas for being such an inspiration to us all!

andrea-pippins-300

Andrea Pippins claims many titles — educator, designer, author — but above all, she’s an artist first. Andrea just finished her latest book Becoming Me, so this interview came right on time!

We began by talking about Andrea’s journey as an author from her first book I ♥ My Hair to today. Andrea also shared what first got her involved in design, spoke about her time at art school at Temple University, touched on her work as a design educator (including her current position at MICA), and a whole lot more. This is an interview you’ll definitely want to listen to again and again!

denise-jacobs-300

Denise Jacobs is a woman who needs no introduction. Her work as a speaker, author, and creativity evangelist has her spreading the gospel of creativity at conferences and tech companies around the world, and has definitely made her a household name in the industry.

We started off talking about how Denise first got started in the industry and later broke into the speaker circuit, as well as her career transition from CSS to creativity. Denise also shared some great information about how to find your strengths, as well as what gives her purpose to continue doing this important work. According to Denise, everyone is creative; they just need to figure out how. That’s the kind of wisdom that’s made her such a sought after expert!
