How do you define success? If you haven’t thought about this, then this week’s interview with Belindah Jones will help put you in the right frame of mind to answer it. Belindah works a UX designer with Capital One’s Digital Team, and she brings a rich history of design education to one of the country’s most popular banks.

We began by looking at Belindah’s day-to-day work, and she shared how Capital One champions diversity in design. From there, Belindah talked about her work as a design professor, life growing up in Kenya, her dream project, and drops some gems on what designers need to know in order to be successful. This episode will definitely give you something to think about!

Kevin White calls himself a “UX strategist”, but that title barely scratches the surface of what he does. Aside from his work as a senior experience designer, he’s also a talented illustrator, a design educator, and a devoted family man. But according to Kevin, his origin story as a design professional is an example of what not to do. (Naturally, I had to know more about this.)

We started off talking about the ubiquity of UX in today’s modern design industry, and from there Kevin goes into the early days of his career, and we take a slight detour to discuss social media, sound design, branding, and even the historical archives of the Internet! We touched on a lot of topics in our conversation, but I think what stands out the most is that there is no one true path to becoming a designer. Learn more about Kevin in this week’s interview!

Atlanta is a city full of possibilities, and Lisa Babb is the kind of person who not only sees them all, but encourages others to see them as well. As an educator, Lisa teaches the next generation of designers that there is room for the table for them in this industry. And as assistant director at Museum of Design Atlanta (MODA), she also helps bring design and art into the local community.

Our conversation started off with a closer look at MODA and talking about how Lisa got her start as a designer and what eventually drew her to Atlanta. From there, we discussed the state of the design community here in the city, as well as how design education has changed over the years. If you’re ever in Atlanta, head on down to MODA and say hi!

Forest Young is the global principal and head of design at Wolff Olins, and let me tell you…he’s a busy, busy guy. Whether he’s serving as a design critic at Yale University (his alma mater) or or overseeing award-winning design projects, Forest brings a high level of observation and specificity to his work.

We start off talking about one of Wolff Olins’ recent award-winning campaigns Dotdot, and that spurred a discussion about the ethics of bleeding edge future design, and even access to meaningful design criticism through education. One thing Forest says is that dream projects are never in the wrappers you expect them to be, and I totally agree with that. If you’re looking for a really deep conversation with someone at the top of their design game, then you’ll enjoy this week’s interview!
