This week, I had the pleasure of interviewing Siedah Mitchum, a WordPress web designer, entrepreneur, and the creator of Inspiring Black Designers.

We chatted about some of her mentors, talked about what inspires her work, how Marie Forleo’s B-School helped transform her business, and a lot more. Her mission to inspire other designers to have a bigger voice is something we both share, and Siedah makes a big announcement, so you’ll definitely have to listen and find out what it is!

This week’s interview is with David Yarde, a web designer and developer, and co-founder of the creative strategy and branding firm Sevenality.

We talked a little bit about branding, discussed which brands are getting it right (and which aren’t!) and talked about how to succeed being an introverted person of color, and how that can be misconstrued.

David is a prime example of someone who has used design to change his life, and I think you’ll really be inspired by his story and his advice for young designers.

Adekunle OduyeAdekunle Oduye is a young designer in New York City. As the youngest of seven kids, Adekunle wanted to become a painter, and he talks about how he came into design and development, his time studying in Rome, and projects he’s created though hackathons. He even gives nods to some of the big names in the industry, and I drop a little advice on speaking for design/tech talks. I hope you’ll enjoy this interview!

Jacques DupouxWhen it comes to design, Jacques Dupoux is big on communicating without pretense. It was really great to talk with him and get his honest, unvarnished take on how he got started in this industry and where he plans to go. We also talked about diversity in the design field and on what it means to have the space to fail.
