Danielle Beecham is a great example of someone who is inspired by the different ways you can use design for what you are passionate about in life. As a freelance UX designer in New York City, Danielle’s focus is on design for social impact.

We talked about her nontraditional path into design via journalism and international relations, her current MFA studies at Parsons, and how her work with nonprofits has been a benefit to her work in UX. Danielle is here to truly make her impact on the world, so you’ll definitely see more of her in the future!

Hans Dorsinville came across my radar when I saw AdWeek’s Creative 100 for 2017. If his name doesn’t sound familiar to you, then you’ve definitely seen his work. I’m talking Donna Karan, Lane Bryant…even Beyoncé. His creativity has been instrumental in some of the world’s top luxury brands in fashion and beauty.

Of course, we had to start off talking about his magnificent body of work! Hans talked about the business side of design and shared how he first got his start as a junior designer fresh out of Parsons School of Design. We also looked back at the booming creative and fashion scene in the 90s, and he shared what he’s learned over the years about making a name for yourself, along with some great advice for designers who want to follow in his footsteps. Hans is all about showing the possibilities available in life, and I’m so glad to have such a talented visionary here on Revision Path. Enjoy!

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!
