Like several guests I’ve had on the show, I knew of Brandon Breaux’s work before I even knew who he was! He may be known best as the artist behind the mixtape covers for Chance the Rapper, but Brandon’s art spans much further than that. And no matter how far his art takes him, he always represents for Chicago.

Actually, Chicago is where our conversation began! We talked about the local design scene and how he feels being a part of it as his profile has grown, and from there Brandon told me about his creative journey through a few schools before settling into the projects he does now. He also shared some of his artistic influences, and gave some insight on his creative strategy and why mental health awareness is such a huge factor in his work. There’s no telling where Brandon’s work will take him next, so keep an eye out for him!

Lorenzo Wilkins is a multitalented creative who has worked extensively in his field for more than 40 years! Graphic design, photography, videography…you name it, and Lorenzo has probably had his hand in it. His most recent endeavor, a video series titled “ArtLife/LifeArt: An Insight into Creativity” talks to artists across the creative spectrum (including one of our past guests, Sela Lewis)!

Lorenzo and I talk about life as a designer before the advent of the personal computer, his history of work across print, television, and video, and his advice for designers on maintaining a creative legacy. I hope that Lorenzo’s story helps you with following your passion and fueling your creative self!

jacklyn-laryea-300-1

We’re closing out the month out with a conversation with Facebook product designer Jacklyn Laryea. Jacklyn’s relatively new at Facebook, but her background includes work at PBS, The Atlantic, and AOL.

Although we started off talking about what Jacklyn does at Facebook, we ended up discussing a lot of different topics, including how Jacklyn’s Ghanaian roots influence her work, what she wants to see from the design community, and her advice for up and coming designers. But the interview’s not all serious — we end up having a few laughs too!


I am forever grateful to Facebook for inviting me out to their headquarters in Menlo Park for these interviews! Thanks to Kristy Tillman, Tory Hargro, Jon Lax, Caroline Rana, Cindy Doan, Michelle Morrison, and everyone who helped make this all possible!

andrea-pippins-300

Andrea Pippins claims many titles — educator, designer, author — but above all, she’s an artist first. Andrea just finished her latest book Becoming Me, so this interview came right on time!

We began by talking about Andrea’s journey as an author from her first book I ♥ My Hair to today. Andrea also shared what first got her involved in design, spoke about her time at art school at Temple University, touched on her work as a design educator (including her current position at MICA), and a whole lot more. This is an interview you’ll definitely want to listen to again and again!
