I met Hadiya Williams at last year’s Black in Design Conference at Harvard University, and I have been a fan ever since then. Hadiya’s background in art direction and design are on full display through Black Pepper Paperie Co., her design and maker’s studio that focuses on boutique event design and one-of-a-kind handmade clayware and printed works.

We started off talking about the Washington DC design scene, and Hadiya walked me through a regular day for her while discussing why she started her studio. Hadiya also talked about her sources of inspiration, what she’s excited about next, and talked about her dream project. Hadiya says that she designs like an artist, and I think that’s definitely reflected in her amazing work!
