When I was a kid growing up in rural Alabama, magazines were my gateway to the world. But these days, Internet and social media have become that gateway, so where does that leave magazines for kids? My search led me to Shannon Boone, creative director for Sesi Magazine, a quarterly print magazine dedicated to celebrating Black teen girls.

We talked about how Shannon first got involved at Sesi, and from there we talked about how she helps put Sesi together, how she became interested in magazine design, and what inspired her to continue in design after a number of setbacks. I really love how Shannon’s positive attitude and outlook on her career, and I think she brings that to every issue of Sesi as well!

When you think of design and Rhode Island, what comes to mind? Well hopefully after this episode, you’ll think of web and print designer Danikqwa Rambert! She may be new to the design industry, but she’s quickly making a name for herself.

I had to learn more, so Danikqwa talked with me about her time at Johnson and Wales University along with how important networking and internships have been to her career so far. She also shared her thoughts on what can be done to keep more women in the design industry, and we even geeked out a bit talking about tea. Danikqwa Rambert is definitely a rising star, so keep your eye on her!

If you’ve hung out in our Slack community for any amount of time, chances are you’ve encountered Paul Anthony Webb. (You might have also seen him rocking some of our merch too!) Paul’s curiosity for tech and design, along with his extensive project work, definitely grabbed my attention. Having him come on the show was a no-brainer!

We started off our conversation talking about how Paul first got into design, and from there we talked about his process for coming up with new ideas and creating new projects. And if you’re up for a little 80’s nostalgia, we go there as well. Paul feels like anything is possible on the web, so I hope this interview inspires you to feel the same way!
