I really had a blast talking with Kristy Tillman, the design director for the Society of Grownups. While she’s probably most well-known for The Detroit Water Project, Kristy has also been a designer at big agencies and companies like IDEO, Reebok, and PUMA.
We started off talking about the rigors of the hiring process when it comes to designers, civic design and what that means to her, and then went straight into dissecting diversity in the design industry (particularly as it relates to the workplace). It’s a little more candid than most interviews, but it’s 100% real talk. I just wish our conversation would have been longer! Maybe a Part 2 of this interview will come in the future…
