It’s easy to see why Kim Goulbourne calls herself a “chronic creator”. Whether she’s helping first-time renters in NYC or helping others experience more of their city, this Webby award-winning maker is full of ideas with a focus on creating purpose-driven experiences with design and code.

Kim talked me through her thought process for new projects, and she shared some information about her latest venture. Her and I also spent some time talking shop about entrepreneurship, finding leads, her dream project, and some of her inspirations. Kim is definitely someone you’ll want to watch, so make sure you follow her and see what gets “Bourn” next!

We’re back in the Caribbean this week and talking with Djuvane Browne, UI designer and owner of One Great Studio in Kingston, Jamaica. If you’re a freelancer and looking to level up in 2017, then you will want to hear what Djuvane has to say!

Djuvane gives me a quick rundown on an average day at his studio, and shares the one secret that transformed his business to where it is today. We also talk about the design scene in Kingston, the notion of a “Caribbean aesthetic”, and what he would be doing if he didn’t become a designer. Djuvane says that you’ll never know what will work until you try, so hopefully his words will inspire you to do bigger things!
