I’ll never forget what Ian Davis told me when I first spoke with him: “I’m here to serve the creative community.” As a results-oriented creative problem solver, Ian heads up the consulting firm Age of the Creative and helps creatives of all kinds with handling their business affairs and get more opportunities.

Ian and I talked about his background working with some of the world’s top ad agencies birthed the idea to start his own business, walked me through a typical day, and shared how the power of community has transformed his life. If you’re a creative looking to take your presence to the next level, then Ian Davis is the man!

Rafael Smith proves that being curious and being open to new experiences can take you pretty far in life. As the current design lead at IDEO.org, he uses his skills in product design and industrial design to improve the lives of people in poor and vulnerable communities worldwide.

We talked about how Rafael almost became a horse trainer instead of a designer, and the one experience that set him on his current path. He also shared a really good piece of advice that has stayed with him over the years, spoke about his new focus on approaching design and bias, and also talked about the importance of carving out time to be creative. Thank you Rafael for sharing your knowledge with all of us!

Regine Gilbert is such a positive presence in our Slack community, so when we finally met at last year’s Black in Design Conference, I knew I had to have her on the show. As a UX design consultant, Regine uses her skills of observation and exploration to help make the world a more accessible place.

We talked about how Regine transitioned into UX from the world of fashion design, the advice that’s stuck with her the most over the years, and she shared how more designers can become aware of using accessibility in their work. We definitely need more people like Regine in the design world, and I’m so glad that she’s part of our community!

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!
