Cyrus Henderson may be new to MailChimp, but he’s no stranger to the product design game, As a product designer on the ads team, he’s also helped work on some of their latest campaigns.

We talked a lot about learning and inspiration, and he shared some of his influences and gave advice for anyone wanting to get into product design. Cyrus is a great example of someone that’s really taken advantage of both social media and the immense amount of design knowledge out there on the Internet to carve out his own place in the design community and make a name for himself. From here, the sky’s the limit!

If you’re ever down in Miami for Art Basel (or otherwise), then there’s a good chance you’ve experienced Mikhaile Solomon’s influence. As the director of Prizm Art Fair, she’s helped curate and exhibit cultural activities from the African diaspora for the past five years.

Listen as Mikhaile talks about how she began with Prizm Art Fair and shares what makes the Miami art and design scene so unique. We also talk about her recent travels throughout Africa, the beauty of Ghana, the controversy behind the Whitney Biennial, and more. I love that we can have these kinds of conversations here, and thanks to Mikhaile for helping bring this culture to the masses!

tamala-huntley-300

Tamala Huntley has been requested by a lot of former guests of the show, and now I see why! Her unbridled enthusiasm for what she does and how she lives her life is a breath of fresh air. You’ve gotta hear her story!

We began by looking at her current work as a digital marketing strategist and she talked about some of the tools she uses to run her business. From there, we took a journey through her career, starting with her early days at FAMU, starting her own Christian bookstore, and how she transitioned from that into design and now marketing. Tamala teaches people how to be okay with being yourself in your business, and she is a living testament to defining success on your own terms. Learn more about Tamala in this week’s interview!

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!

anna-wilder-300

This week, I’m talking with Anna Wilder, lead designer and brand manager for De Novo Nutrition. While she is based out of Tampa, Florida, she’s a Chicagoland native with education from Savannah College of Arts and Columbia College Chicago.

We started off talking about what it’s like working as the first design hire for a startup, and from there went into her transition from the midwest to the South. She also walked us through a typical day at De Novo, and she spoke about what motivates her as a young designer. I’m excited to see where Anna’s work will take her next!
