You may know about Justin Edmund from one of two places — his turn as a child actor in the 1996 holiday classic “The Preacher’s Wife” or as Pinterest’s first design hire (who USA Today profiled last year about being Black in Silicon Valley). What more is there that you could know? A lot!
We talked about his shift from acting to technology, his time at Carnegie Mellon, the early days of Pinterest, and his focus on using design to solve big problems and help the less privileged among us. Justin’s also on the crossroads of a pretty big life change, so I’m really glad for the opportunity to talk with him about what he’s got in store in the future. Enjoy!

June kicks off with a great interview with Damian Madray. Damian Madray is senior product designer at Neo Interactive, and the founder of Hunie — a community for designers, founders, and developers for design feedback — and TheGlint, a series of salons that facilitate meaningful conversations.
Our conversation mainly centered around his two creations, but Damian also talked a lot about passion and drive and how those two things motivate his work. One of Damian’s big goals is learning how to design culture, so if you’re in the Bay Area, there’s a good chance you’ll hear more about Damian in the future!
