We’re ending out our month of legacies by checking in with Andrea Williams, an art director and self-professed budding calligrapher in Detroit.
Speaking of Motor City, that’s where our conversation began. We talked about what it’s like working for a global ad agency, and then moved into an exploration of the Detroit design scene. From here, Andrea discussed how she got started with hand lettering, her time at Wayne State University, and what it’s like for her being a Black woman in the advertising industry. Thanks for the insightful words Andrea!

Happy new year! Start off 2015 on a positive note by listening to this conversation with graphic designer and letterist Marcus Williamson.

I’ve got something a little different for this week’s interview — a podcast! I had a chance to sit down with Pittsburgh-based letterer and designer Raquel Rodriguez. We had a great dialogue about typography, how her design influences her work as a librarian, freelancing, and a lot more. Please forgive the audio quality; it’s a bit distorted and uneven in parts since I recorded it on my mobile phone and the audio was spliced from two separate recordings. Rest assured that future podcasts will be of much better quality.
I’ve also included several links in the show notes to some topics we discussed, and you can see a sample of Raquel’s work after the break.
If you want to hear more audio interviews here on Revision Path, leave a comment and let me know! Without further ado, here’s Raquel!
