Mokokoma MokhonoanaI came across Mokokoma Mokhonoana on Behance while looking up African graphic designers. I really liked his logos — simple, yet bold and uncompromising. But when I visited his website and saw his aphorisms, writings, and cartoons? I knew I had to talk to him. Our interview wasn’t just about design – in fact, we didn’t talk much about design at all! I think you’ll like this departure from the regular shop talk on design and development. I hope you enjoy it!

When I look for people to interview for Revision Path, I always mark them down on a list so I can follow up with them later. (This list now has over 300 people. I need an intern!)

One of the people on that list was Andrea Williams.

I also ask people who I’ve interviewed if they know anyone else that I could talk to for this site. Remember Chanelle Henry from a few weeks ago? When I asked her if there was anyone she knew I could interview. Not only did she provide me with a list of about 6 or 7 people (whoa!), but guess who was on there? Andrea Williams!

Talk about serendipity!

I talked with the Detroit designer about her work, her inspirations, and her influences. Another great interview that you’ll only find here on Revision Path. Enjoy!

Daphne LaroseI love Daphne Larose’s intro for her website, Black Female Coders. “We’re out there. We may not see each other in our computer science courses or in our offices at work or while roaming around technology conferences — but we know we’re out there. Here is where we find each other.” Powerful! I had to talk to her about what she’s doing with Black Female Coders and get her overall thoughts on blacks in technology. Daphne is definitely making waves in the community and I think you’ll be hearing a lot more from her in the future. Hope you enjoy!

Maurice WingfieldAside from being a graphic and web designer, Maurice Wingfield is also a talented illustrator! He contacted me through Facebook and we had a really great conversation on design, diversity in the tech and design fields and conferences, technology in Africa…it really runs the gamut of topics from A to Z. I also get a bit long winded in parts, which is why this interview is pretty lengthy. But it’s really good. Very dense. So grab a cup of coffee, sit back, and soak it all in!

chanelle-henry

I first heard about Chanelle Henry three years ago via Kickstarter. Her successful campaign allowed her to attend SXSW for the first time, and she’s been blowing up ever since. Aside from being a user experience designer, Chanelle teaches courses through Skillshare, lends her graphic design expertise in videos with Howcast, and owns a boutique collaborative multimedia agency called CHD Collective. Find out more about Chanelle’s work and her thoughts on design in this week’s interview!
