shannon-washington-300

Shannon Washington is a true creative force! Several people that have been on the show have recommended that I talk with her, and after seeing her in this year’s Women’s Freedom Conference, I knew I had to make it happen.

Our conversation started with a simple question: “When did you first fall in love with design?” From there, we talked about her time at Howard University, how she became a creative director, the people who inspire her, and her dream project. Shannon is definitely more than just a creative director, world traveler, and fierce advocate for Black women — she is a creator!

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-sarah-huny-young

For Revision Path’s 100th interview, I had the opportunity to talk with design powerhouse Sarah Huny Young. Huny’s portfolio speaks for itself, and she’s done next-level design work for big entertainment brands like VIBE Magazine and BET. Currently, she’s the founder of Supreme Clientele, a design agency in Pittsburgh, PA that has done work for award-winning websites like VSB, Soulbounce, The Curvy Fashionista, and the Women’s Freedom Conference.

Our conversation touched on so many things — entrepreneurship, the design process, visibility, mentorship…you name it. You’ll just to settle in and press play and soak it all up. It’s truly one of the best interviews I’ve done to date, and I’m so glad to have the chance to talk with one of my personal design heroes. Here’s to 100 episodes of the Revision Path podcast!

This week, we’re heading down to Trinidad and talking with Jeunanne Alkins, the creative powerhouse behind Everything Slight Pepper and ESPjr, a design studio specializing in Caribbean-themed content for children. From apparel to graphic design to animation, Jeunanne really does it all.

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!
