We’re closing out March by talking with with London-based product designer and creative technologist Alex Fefegha. As the creative director of his own Alex’s work has taken him all over the world, and he’s currently creative director of Comuzi, an agency with clients like the BBC, the University of the Arts London and NHS England.

Our talk is less of an interview and more of a conversation. We touch on a few entrepreneurial topics like starting a studio and finding clients, the state of diversity in design in London and the United Kingdom, and I ask Alex what he thinks prevents more Black designers from becoming recognized leaders in design. It’s a little bit of a departure from the norm, but I’m glad that we were able to candidly discuss these topics. Thanks Alex!
