I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the end of this year’s HBCU Month on Revision Path (as well as this year’s World Interaction Design Day) than with a conversation with Marcus Mosby. Marcus is a senior interaction designer at Fjord in Austin, TX, and his passion lies in designing and creating experiences that help improve the lives of users everywhere.

We started off with an introduction to interaction design, and Marcus talked about the processes and tools he uses, and gave tips for other designers looking to get into the field. From there, we talked about his time at Clark Atlanta University, and he shared what it’s like to design for different cultural considerations, and even gave us a peek at his photography work! There are a lot of paths you can take to get into design, and Marcus wants you to know that the sky’s the limit!

Oen Michael Hammonds, a designer, mentor and lead facilitator at IBM Design, has designed across the gamut — advertising, graphic, interactive and environmental. At IBM Design, Oen works with internal teams to develop design thinking among executives, software development teams, and sales.

First, we talked about design thinking — what it is, how it’s used, and why it’s important. From there, our conversation focused on Oen’s journey as a designer, the importance of AIGA to his career, and what excites him about design. What a great way to end out the year!

This interview with designer/photographer Tiffany Middleton was really fun. Tiffany is a pro when it comes to sports design, having done design work for the Auburn University Tigers as well as the Green Bay Packers. Currently, she’s a designer for Panini America, a premier distributor for sports trading cards.

We talked about where her love for sports design came from, the design program at her alma mater, as well as her dream design project. Tiffany Middleton is definitely a star on the rise!

While I was in Austin a few months ago, I had the opportunity to visit Sanders\Wingo and give my presentation “Where Are The Black Designers?”. And that’s where I Roy Milton 2! Roy’s an art director for the Austin-based firm and has helped shape the look and feel for campaigns for clients like AT&T and Bee Sweet Lemonade.

We spoke about art direction — what it is and why it’s important — and also talked about pursuing industry awards, the benefits of diversity in advertising and design, and how his dad was one of his biggest artistic influences. Roy also does a lot in the local Austin creative scene, so I’m really glad to have him on to represent. Thanks Roy!
