I’ve got something a little different for this week’s interview — a podcast! I had a chance to sit down with Pittsburgh-based letterer and designer Raquel Rodriguez. We had a great dialogue about typography, how her design influences her work as a librarian, freelancing, and a lot more. Please forgive the audio quality; it’s a bit distorted and uneven in parts since I recorded it on my mobile phone and the audio was spliced from two separate recordings. Rest assured that future podcasts will be of much better quality.
I’ve also included several links in the show notes to some topics we discussed, and you can see a sample of Raquel’s work after the break.
If you want to hear more audio interviews here on Revision Path, leave a comment and let me know! Without further ado, here’s Raquel!
For this week’s interview, I talked with Kronda Adair, web developer, and owner of Karvel Digital. Kronda talks about her business, gives her thoughts on web development and diversity in the industry, and her involvement in the local Portland tech community. It’s a really great interview!
The Lean Startup Conference is looking for an experienced designer/developer to help them launch a small new website in the next 4-6 weeks. The site uses a custom CMS built on Ruby on Rails. Along with pay, they can offer VIP passes for the conference, along with access to their strong referral network.
Along with being a web designer, Leon Scott is an award-winning blogger and a stand-up comedian in the Washington, DC area. Leon spoke to Revision Path about his motivations, how he came into web design, and…an Al Sharpton Bat-Signal. Make sure you “listen to Leon” while you’re reading the interview. Enjoy!
