Shaun Mosley is one busy guy! By day, he’s a software designer and interaction designer, and as part of Intuit’s Design System team, he helps build the components and interactions for popular financial apps like Mint and QuickBooks. Outside of work, Shaun is a relatively new resident to the Bay Area, a podcaster, and a proud papa!

We spent a good bit of time talking about Shaun’s journey as a designer, what he’s looking forward to in 2019, and he shared the best advice he’s gotten which has helped him grow. Shaun’s motto is to “trust the process”, and I think doing that has really helped him succeed!

Design and journalism might seem like opposite fields, but technology has brought them closer together than ever before (especially over the past few years). How are journalists navigating this new landscape where news is now a designed experience? To gain some insight on this, I spoke with Michael Grant. He’s the creative director for the San Francisco Business Times and is a current John S. Knight Journalism Fellow at Stanford University.

Michael an I talked about his current research work, and he shared what he’s learned from working with HBCUs and his day-to-day work at the San Francisco Business Times. Michael really wants to make an impact in the world of design and journalism, and I think he’s well on his way of making that happen!

Thanks to Regine Gilbert for the introduction!

Research is such an important part of the design process, and no one can attest to that fact more than Renee Reid. As senior UX design researcher at LinkedIn, the process of search and discovery is crucial to her work in helping connect professionals worldwide.

Renee walked me through a typical day working with project managers, designers, and other researchers, and we touched on the increasing popularity of UX roles in the design industry. She also shared some of the goals she has for the year, and talks about what fuels her drive for success. Major props to Renee for blazing a trail and showing the next generation of designers they’re not alone in this field!

We’re closing out 2017 by talking with the one and only John Jennings. As a storyteller, editor and artist, John’s body of work spans several media: comics, graphic novels, books, and countless panels and talks. He’s even the co-founder and organizer of two comics conventions! Currently he’s a professor of media and cultural studies at UC Riverside, and he is exploring the connections between design, identity politics and popular media.

John starts off by giving us a primer on afrofuturism and talks about some of his current projects, such as illustrating Kindred: A Graphic Novel Adaptation and finishing the art book Black Comix Returns. From there, we go into topics around art and design as indicators of culture, speculative design, and more. John is really helping advance the conversation around comics and culture, and I couldn’t think of a better way to wrap up the year. 2018, here we come!

We’ve had several folks from Slack here on Revision Path, and the latest one is digital designer Angelica McKinley! She has a wealth of experience in digital storytelling from working at The New York Times, and she’s now making the switch from print to tech.

We talked about her work at The New York Times, which went into a discussion on how Black creatives use tech as well as on the importance of HBCU pipelines. Angelica also shared what has her excited at the moment, and what she plans to accomplish for the rest of this year. 2017 has been a big year for Angelica, and I’m glad that she’s one of hundreds of talented Black creatives out in the Bay Area!
