When you think about design in Columbus, OH, you think of Marshall Shorts. Aside from being an award-winning entrepreneur, artist, teacher, author, and designer, he is also the co-founder of Creative Control Fest, a conference that brings people of color from across the diaspora to expose, educate, and advocate for the opportunities in the creative industries.

We talked about how he started his creative consultancy Soulo Theory Creative, how Atlanta influenced the start of Creative Control Fest, the highs and lows of conference planning, and about the tug-of-war between sponsorship and creative control. If you’re in the Midwest in September, make sure you drop in and check out what Marshall is doing!

I first heard about Xavier Ruffin back in late 2013 during his fundraising campaign for Mad Black Men, a satirical web series inspired by Mad Men about the 1960’s ad industry from the eyes of three Black ad workers. We also featured Xavier on our “12 Designers to Follow on Behance” post last year. So imagine my surprise when Xavier contacted me and wanted to be on the show. How could I say no?

Xavier’s work is so much more than this one campaign though. We talked about his company, his title sequencing work for several popular artists like T.I., Childish Gambino, and Wiz Khalifa, and many more. Xavier also gave some great advice for people out there trying to increase their profile. Thanks again for the conversation, Xavier!

James and I first crossed paths back in August at Weapons of Mass Creation Fest, and I was so glad to talk at length with him!

A self-proclaimed “designer by trade and artist by practice”, James has managed to skillfully balance his digital design work with his artistic practice to create really meaningful work. Along with this, we discussed his work with a few Chicago-area artistic collectives as well as his current t-shirt campaign that helps raise money for organizations supporting the Ferguson community. Powerful stuff!

Crystal FlemisterI first met Crystal Flemister years ago when we were both designers at AT&T. Since then, she’s moved on to CNN and has been making a name for herself in the local fashion scene with her company Pistol Whipped Cream. We talk about her time at the Art Institute of Atlanta, her inspirations, and…Kanye West? Yep, a little bit of everything. Check it out!
