dian-holton-300

Dian Holton is a design superhero! By day, she’s an editorial art director at AARP. But by night, she’s installing window displays, dressing mannequins, and creating magic for the GAP through the nation’s capital. Did I mention that she’s also on the board of Washington DC’s AIGA chapter and she’s on AIGA’s national Diversity and Inclusion Task Force? She does it all!

Our conversation started off with a look into her day job, and from there we talked about DC’s design scene, her love for volunteering, and how she managed to get so much done in the name of design. Dian was recently named by Graphic Design USA as one of 2016’s “People to Watch”, and it’s easy to see why!

300-pamela-assogba

If there’s one word that I would use to describe Pamela Assogba, it would be ambitious! Originally from Dakar, Senegal, Pamela’s love for knowledge brought her here to Washington, DC, and she studied architecture and fashion design before settling into web development. Now, she’s a full-stack engineer for Vox Media and an instructor for General Assembly teaching courses on front-end web development.

We talked about the lessons she’s learned since becoming a web developer, what keeps her motivated and inspired, the state of diversity in the tech industry, and some insight into the tech scene in Dakar. Pamela also had some great advice for new coders — have fun with it! (I totally agree.) Without further ado, here’s Pamela! Enjoy!
