sela-lewis-300

You’re really in for a great conversation this week! Sela Lewis described herself to me as “a designer who writes”, but I think it’s better to describe her as a designer who thinks. Whether she’s expressing herself through her blog or taking on lofty design projects, Sela is always figuring out how her design skills can exist in multiple spaces to make the best impact on the world.

We started off with her current work at Education Trust, and from there dove into a number of topics: Black women and creativity, NYC design culture vs. DC design culture, how travel has shaped her design thinking, and a lot more. We even talk a little about the current season of network and cable television! Sela says that designers should always make themselves a part of the deeper conversation, and I think this episode is a great example of that.

kevon-ticer-300

We’re ending out HBCU Month on Revision Path by talking with KeVon Ticer, a UX designer for the University of California. KeVon’s journey has a designer has taken him from coast to coast!

We spent a good bit of time talking about HBCUs — Howard University in particular, KeVon’s alma mater — and whether they’re preparing the next generation of designers. KeVon also shared his experiences at Carnegie Mellon and BitTorrent, and told me what it means to him to be a designer today. Thanks to KeVon for sharing his story!

gus-granger-300

When it comes to design, Gus Granger is no stranger. As the principal of Dallas’ premiere brand communications agency 70kft, Gus works with clients and oversees a team focused on providing design, public relations, and digital marketing services to their clients.

We talked about how Gus started his company from the ground up, the current climate surrounding diversity in the technology and design communities, the importance of AIGA for students, and his recent project from Studio 360 which involved designing a new symbol for the South. Gus is a really positive and inspirational example of excellence in our field, and I’m really glad to have the chance to share his story with you all. Enjoy!

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-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!
