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!

Our look at the Capital One Digital team continues this month with the talented multidisciplinary designer Arneice Hart. She works as a senior product designer at Capital One, and her work involves reducing people’s financial anxiety and helping change banking for good.

Arneice talked about how she approaches new creative projects, and shared insights she learned from early in her career, advice she would have given herself as a young designer, and spoke about how her passions helped drive and inspire her to where she is today. According to Arneice, there is no linear path to becoming a designer, and her journey as a designer proves that!

When I met exhibit designer Richard Bentham last summer while in Washington DC, I immediately wanted to have him come on the show. Museums play such a pivotal part in our understanding of history, and I thought it would be fascinating to explore that with someone who actually designs the exhibits we see.

We started off talking about Richard’s work at the National Museum of the American Indian, and he shared how he first got interested in exhibit design. From there, we discussed the role of the museum in modern times, and Richard talked about where he sees exhibit design going in the future. He even shared some advice for designers out there who might be interested in getting into the field. It’s vital that we see more people of color in museums, not just as attendees, but as people behind the scenes as well. I’m really glad to have Richard on the podcast to not only talk about these issues, but to show a new possibility for designers to pursue!

When I stumbled across Cary Michael Robinson’s work, I knew I had to have him on the show. He’s got his hands in a lot of different aspects of art and design, and has even turned that into a series of entrepreneurial ventures in the DMV area.

We started off talking about Cary Michael’s day job with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, and he gave a breakdown as to the importance of patents, trademarks and copyrights for creative makers. From there, Cary Michael shared his story of learning art at FAMU, and even shared some tips for designers on how to nail their own personal brand. Cary Michael is a true testament to living your life’s purpose through your passion, and I hope his story helps you pursue your inspirations!

For the next two weeks, I’m looking at two talented young creatives in the DMV area. First up: animator Tynesha Foreman. When she described herself to me as someone “with a proclivity for the grotesque,” I knew I had to look into her work and bring on the show!

Our conversation began by going into some of her current work at The Atlantic, and she talked about how she approaches new projects and where her love for animation began. Tynesha also spoke a bit about diversity in animation, some of her inspirations and influences, and where she wants to be career-wise in the next few years. Tynesha has such a unique and powerful visual style, so I think we’ll definitely see more from her for years to come!

(Note: The audio quality is a little crunchy on this episode, but we cleaned it up as much as possible.)
