Denise Jacobs is a woman who needs no introduction. Her work as a speaker, author, and creativity evangelist has her spreading the gospel of creativity at conferences and tech companies around the world, and has definitely made her a household name in the industry.

We started off talking about how Denise first got started in the industry and later broke into the speaker circuit, as well as her career transition from CSS to creativity. Denise also shared some great information about how to find your strengths, as well as what gives her purpose to continue doing this important work. According to Denise, everyone is creative; they just need to figure out how. That’s the kind of wisdom that’s made her such a sought after expert!

If you’ve read USA Weekend magazine in your Sunday paper, there’s a pretty good chance you’ve seen Leon Lawrence III’s amazing work. As USA Weekend‘s design director, he’s worked with photographers, copywriters, and other fellow creatives to design the magazine from top to bottom for almost 15 years.

We talked about Leon’s everyday work with the magazine, along with his beginnings as art director of Emerge magazine, his stint as former vice-president of the Organization of Black Designers, and his book “Career Diary of a Publication Design Director“. Leon has an incredible back story and loads and loads of knowledge for current and up and coming design students.

All these gifts just in time for Christmas! Enjoy!

Mokokoma MokhonoanaI came across Mokokoma Mokhonoana on Behance while looking up African graphic designers. I really liked his logos — simple, yet bold and uncompromising. But when I visited his website and saw his aphorisms, writings, and cartoons? I knew I had to talk to him. Our interview wasn’t just about design – in fact, we didn’t talk much about design at all! I think you’ll like this departure from the regular shop talk on design and development. I hope you enjoy it!
