Atlanta’s own Goldi Gold describes himself as a “blue collar” digital illustrator, but his hustle and quality of work are top notch. As a fixture of Atlanta’s art scene, Goldi makes sure he’s out there making sure people see art in person.

We talked about how he got started as an illustrator, and what inspires his unique style. From there, Goldi talked about what drew him to Atlanta, and what follows is a candid discussion about how the city treats art and artists, and talks about what motivates him to create day after day. Goldi is a true working artist, y’all — support your local artist!

One of the brilliant things about design is that there’s no one “right” way to enter the industry. Career paths aren’t linear anymore, and no one demonstrates this more than Sabella Flagg. Her journey has a designer has literally taken her around the world, and now she’s settled in Seattle as an interaction designer for digital agency Artefact.

Sabella and I talked about what interaction design is, and she shared what prompted her move to Seattle after spending time teaching English in China. Sabella is also a fine artist and photographer, and talked about her dreams of having her own gallery exhibition, and her motivations for growing as a designer. Learn more about Sabella in this week’s interview!

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’re back in the Bay Area this week, and we’re talking to illustrator and senior UI/UX designer Frances Liddell! She comes from an illustrious legacy through Jackson State University, but as you’ll hear in the interview, that doesn’t mean that she hasn’t had to work hard to obtain success.

We talked about her “aha moment” as a designer, and we spent a lot of time dissecting and discussing HBCUs, “the pipeline”, and the design community. Frances also shared her experiences in San Francisco, including going to design school there and transitioning into her current role. Shout out to Cornelius Toole in our Slack community for the introduction!
