I’m always excited to find out about great design talent all over the world, so I was really excited to find out about Antonea Nabors while randomly browsing the Web. What a discovery! For the past few years, Antonea has been working at some of the top design agencies in Australia. Currently, she’s located in Brisbane and working as lead UI designer for Five Good Friends.

During our conversation, Antonea talked about how she first got interested in design, shared how a contest entry ended up changing her life, and discussed some of the cultural and work differences between the United States and Australia. We also talked a little about aboriginal representation, diversity in the Australian design community, and a lot more. Thanks to Antonea for a great chat!

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!

kojo-boateng-300

It’s our 125th episode, and I’m delighted to bring you this conversation with Kojo Boateng. Kojo’s a multidisciplinary designer with a background in graphic design and motion graphics probably most well-known for his tenure as design director for the award-winning ITV News in the United Kingdom.

We started off recapping his work for ITV News, and Kojo shared what makes great graphics for television and how color influences the news. From there, he shared what he’s focusing on now along with some of the people who have inspired him. It’s a really great opportunity to speak to someone who is a great designer and a great person as well. Enjoy!

300-ire-aderinokun

I had a blast chatting with Ire Aderinokun, a UI designer and front-end developer in Lagos, Nigeria. You may have seen Ire mentioned on CSS-Tricks for her writings over at Bits of Code, a blog she created for self-taught web developers.

We talked about what Ire’s learned since launching Bits of Code, how she got into web development after getting degrees in psychology and law, the booming tech and startup scene in Lagos, polyphasic sleep, and her advice for budding developers. Keep an eye out for Ire!
