It’s Revision Path’s fourth anniversary! We’re celebrating the occasion by taking a look back at some of the memorable guests we’ve had over the years, including Jacinda Walker, Ced Funches, AIGA Medalist Emory Douglas, and more. Plus, we have a special guest near the end of the episode, so make sure you stick around for that.

It has truly been an honor and a blessing to interview all the 200+ Black designers, developers, and creatives that have been on Revision Path. Thanks to all of you who have listened, downloaded, shared, pledged, and spread the word about Revision Path. There’s more coming from Revision Path this year, so keep your eyes peeled for updates! (Gee, I wonder what we should do for our fifth anniversary?)

You’re really in for a great conversation this week! Sela Lewis described herself to me as “a designer who writes”, but I think it’s better to describe her as a designer who thinks. Whether she’s expressing herself through her blog or taking on lofty design projects, Sela is always figuring out how her design skills can exist in multiple spaces to make the best impact on the world.

We started off with her current work at Education Trust, and from there dove into a number of topics: Black women and creativity, NYC design culture vs. DC design culture, how travel has shaped her design thinking, and a lot more. We even talk a little about the current season of network and cable television! Sela says that designers should always make themselves a part of the deeper conversation, and I think this episode is a great example of that.
