dewon-hall-300

After 150 episodes, I thought it would be a great idea to look back at some of the designers we’ve profiled from the early days of Revision Path. What are they up to now? What has changed since our first interview? I’m curious to know!

Dewon Hall was first featured on the site back in August 2013, and he’s currently the webmaster for Mississippi Valley State University in Itta Bena, MS. Before his work at MVSU, he worked for the past decade at Shamoon Advertising and Marketing creating award-winning campaigns.

Dewon walked me through a typical day working at MVSU, and from there we went into pros and cons of being a designer in a rural area — something I’m all too familiar with! He also talked about the work he’s doing with art students in the Mississippi Delta area through a program called A.R.T. | Acknowledging Real Talent. According to Dewon, it’s important for him to be exactly where he is so he can help foster the next generation of designers. Powerful words from a great designer. Keep up the awesome work, Dewon!
