We’re finishing up HBCU Month by talking with the inspiring and unstoppable Glennette Clark.

HBCU Month continues with an interview with senior UX designer Eric Johnson, who I first heard about from Jole Simmons.

Eric’s worked for some big companies like Walmart, AOL, and Adobe, and he shared how his passion for design started at an early age. He dropped quite a few gems in this interview, so I think this is one you’ll definitely want to take notes on while listening!

I’ve known Nicole Norwood online for a while now, so when I had the idea to do an HBCU month, she was first on my list.

Nicole is one half of the brother/sister duo known as Infinite Ink, a design and print shop in Jackson, MS, and she’s also a popular event photographer. (Chances are you’ve seen her work from the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival!) On top of that, Nicole is a podcaster as well! I don’t know how she finds the time to do it all.

Learn more about Nicole and her latest project in this week’s interview!

jole-simmons-300

I had such a great time talking with Jole Simmons, a killer presentation designer who has done work for Facebook, Duarte Designs, The Creative Group, the National Association of Black Journalists, and Microsoft. And wouldn’t you know it — Jole and I had this conversation while he was on vacation! Talk about dedication!

Jole talked about his unconventional journey from a Hampton University grad working in advertising to a mid-career change that where he’s now best known as the “presentation guy”. We also talked about inspiration, mentoring, and the importance of racial diversity in the design field.

Also, don’t forget to enter to win one of two free tickets to Generate NYC! We’re announcing the winners on June 13!

It’s HBCU Month, and we’re kicking things off with a great interview with USA Today’s visual design manager Tory Hargro. Tory and I talked about user experience and the importance of design in modern news and storytelling.

According to Tory, “it’s easier for me to teach a coder how to be a journalist than teach a journalist how to be a coder.”

So if you have some design or coding knowledge, then you might look at working with the news in a different way!

Also, learn how the simple turn of a key convinced Tory to attend Alcorn State University. Overall, it was a great interview!
