300-craig-brimm

I’ve been a fan of Craig Brimm’s website Kiss My Black Ads for years, so I was really glad to have the chance to interview him for the show! Craig has been in the advertising and design business for nearly 20 years, so he has a great perspective on these industries.

We talked about his start in design here in Atlanta, the ups and downs of working for agencies, and his newest venture — entrepreneurship! This is definitely an interview you’ll want to take notes with while listening because Craig drops a lot of pearls of wisdom. Press play and enjoy!

300-sheila-owens

I was introduced to Sheila Owens through a fellow Morehouse alum, and wow — what a discovery! Sheila has over 30 years of software development experience to her name, and she’s currently doing Android development using Java.

We talked about how her entry into computer science was a bit of a fluke, her work for the United States Government, the experience of teaching computer science, and her advice for up and coming programmers. Sheila’s got quite a story, so make sure you check out what she has to say!

300-alicia-carr

I’m starting September off with the inspiring Alicia Carr. Alicia is an iOS mobile engineer and the founder and CEO of The Purple Pocketbook, the first domestic violence mobile app in the state of Georgia. Alicia began coding at 51, and her work was even highlighted during this year’s WWDC live feed. Impressive!

We spoke about her app, her work with Women Who Code, the WWDC experience, and her future goals and plans. Alicia has such an upbeat and positive spirit, and I think you’ll really fall in love with her and her story. I know I’m definitely motivated by what she’s accomplished, and I think you will be too!

300-denise-nicole-francis

To cap off the month, I’m talking with full-stack designer Denise Nicole Francis. Her journey into the world of the Web by way of architecture and fashion design might sound a little odd, but she’s picked up some serious skills along the way, including studying under design great Massimo Vignelli!

We talked about the work she’s doing at General Assembly, discussed some of her design inspirations, and she shared how she ended up as creative director for a Grammy Award-winning artist! Denise’s positive attitude and sunny outlook on life is definitely an inspiration. Big thanks to Jarrett Coger for the introduction!

Seventy-five episodes! I’m so glad to celebrate this milestone occasion with this conversation I had with Octavia Gilmore. Octavia is founder and creative director of Creative Juice, a boutique design agency here in Atlanta, GA.

Octavia and I talked about how she built Creative Juice from the ground up, gathered her team, and even gave some great advice on what she’s learned since starting her business. We also talked a bit about the importance of professional organizations in this age of social media and the Internet. Design entrepreneurs — you’ll definitely want to tune in to this episode!
