300-vanessa-harris

I met Vanessa French-Harris when I spoke in Raleigh earlier this month at the Hopscotch Design Festival. We spoke a bit before and after my talk, and I knew she would be fantastic to have on the show. Currently, Vanessa is the graphic design manager at Meredith College, and she has decades of experience in this industry.

We talked about her time at Parsons in NYC and her work in the NYC design scene, her illustration work, and her priceless advice for designers in the field right now. I’m so glad I had the chance to connect with Vanessa, and I think you’ll get a lot of gems out of this interview. Enjoy!

I had such a delightful conversation with this week’s guest — Brooklyn-based graphic designer and artist Arielle Wilkins.

We spoke about growing up in a creative family, her time at SVA, and the difference in working with a big agency versus a smaller agency. Arielle also talked about her latest project Brothas and Sistas, and how she gained the confidence to keep at it and turn it into something successful! Watch out for Arielle — I have a feeling you’ll be seeing her work in stores soon!

We’re kicking off this month with an interview with Reggie Weaver, a young Ohio-based graphic designer and illustrator. Reggie and I talked about how he got his spark for design and illustration, not to mention what he learned from his first design gig.

We also spoke about his work with the Diversity Task Force at the Columbus College of Art and Design and how he helps promote creativity, inclusion and diversity within the LGBTQIA community.

Catt SmallCatt Small is her name and there’s no shame in her game. I talked with the Bronx-born UX designer/developer about how she got started, the need for greater representation in the tech field, her work with Brooklyn Gamery and The Code Liberation Foundation, and even geeked out over gaming for a bit and talked about fighters and racial and gender representation in gaming.
