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!

300-octavia-gilmore

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!

300-rafe-chisolm

It’s amazing how many times I’ve crossed paths with Rafe Chisolm! We went to the same college, worked at the same place…we even live in the same part of town! And of all places, we first met in Austin, Texas at SXSW Interactive.

Rafe calls himself a “generalist designer”, and his unconventional journey to becoming a designer is really inspiring. We talked about that journey, how he went on several interviews with the intent to fail, and how companies can help to bring in and promote more designers of color. Really good stuff!
