How do you define success? If you haven’t thought about this, then this week’s interview with Belindah Jones will help put you in the right frame of mind to answer it. Belindah works a UX designer with Capital One’s Digital Team, and she brings a rich history of design education to one of the country’s most popular banks.

We began by looking at Belindah’s day-to-day work, and she shared how Capital One champions diversity in design. From there, Belindah talked about her work as a design professor, life growing up in Kenya, her dream project, and drops some gems on what designers need to know in order to be successful. This episode will definitely give you something to think about!

The multitalented Courtney La Prince is a true go-getter! Her focus on delivering the best experiences she can for users goes through all her work, and you’ll definitely pick up on that during our conversation.

We started off with Courtney talking about her current work at The Home Depot, and she talked about what brought her back to Atlanta to continue her career. Courtney also runs Inspire. Motiv8. Design. Creative Studio, so we spoke a bit about entrepreneurship in Atlanta and what she hopes to achieve in the next five years. No matter the obstacle, Courtney’s drive and passion to succeed will get her through!

I first met Jordan in our Slack community, and ever since then, he’s been a part of helping foster Revision Path’s community. Currently, Jordan works as a research coordinator for the MyPEEPS project at the University of Washington, and helps use his skills in UX design and research to help social impact organizations and projects.

We talked about his current work at UW, and Jordan shared how he fell into UX design and research by accident after years of work in public health. From there, we talked about our experience meeting at XOXO this year, and had a great discussion about the importance of queer people in design. Jordan is committed to creating great design for social change, so definitely keep an eye out for more of his work in the future!

One thing that can be hard for new designers to grasp is that users are the most important part of design. Shaw Strothers is a huge advocate of this, and it’s reflected in his work at UX lead at User Insight in Atlanta, GA.

Shaw started off talking about how he got into UX after a start in computer science and an early start as an industrial designer. From there, he talked about Hue Design Summit, an annual event put on by Shaw and the Hue Collective for design professionals of color, and we spoke about the Atlanta design scene and how it’s evolved over the years. Thanks to Shaw for not only a great conversation, but for bringing a design event like Hue Design Summit to the city!

There’s been some debate in the community recently about whether UX is considered a design discipline, so we’ve been talking to UX designers in lots of different fields to get a better look at just why UX is so important. And thanks to Alex Binder, that’s how I met Tony Turner, a UX designer in Cleveland, Ohio.

Tony started off with talking about how he first learned about UX, and how he’s used his skills in both the insurance and technology industries. We also delve a bit into the topic of wearables for medical use, and he gives some great advice on how designers can challenge themselves by solving problems in fields outside of just visual design. You might look at UX a bit differently after this episode!
