Diversity in design for Black people is an important issue, but a lot of its focus tends to go towards employment rather than education. Design researcher Omari Souza has approached the topic from a different angle, and his thesis reveals some startling insights.

Omari shared how he first got into design and how his education at Cleveland Institute of Art and Kent State University inspired his push into design research. Omari is also a new full-time professor at La Roche College in Pittsburgh, so we talked about the importance of representation in design education and even about the design community’s silence around political issues concerning Black Americans. We do cover a lot in this interview, and I’m glad we have design researchers like Omari to examine and document this kind of work!

For our 200th episode, we’re bringing back one of our favorite guests — Sarah Huny Young. Huny does it all — she’s a creative director, a multidisciplinary designer, and an overall creative titan. It was great to catch up with her and learn about what she’s been doing since our 100th episode!

We talked about her latest project, American Woman, and she shared how the project came to fruition and what its taught her since she started it a year ago. We also discussed funding for the creative arts, the importance of designers to brand themselves, the pros and cons of the Pittsburgh arts and design scene, and a lot more. Huny has so much wisdom to share, and it’s always great to catch up with her. Who knows…maybe she’ll come back for episode 300!

300-sarah-huny-young

For Revision Path’s 100th interview, I had the opportunity to talk with design powerhouse Sarah Huny Young. Huny’s portfolio speaks for itself, and she’s done next-level design work for big entertainment brands like VIBE Magazine and BET. Currently, she’s the founder of Supreme Clientele, a design agency in Pittsburgh, PA that has done work for award-winning websites like VSB, Soulbounce, The Curvy Fashionista, and the Women’s Freedom Conference.

Our conversation touched on so many things — entrepreneurship, the design process, visibility, mentorship…you name it. You’ll just to settle in and press play and soak it all up. It’s truly one of the best interviews I’ve done to date, and I’m so glad to have the chance to talk with one of my personal design heroes. Here’s to 100 episodes of the Revision Path podcast!
