Michael RoachMichael Roach is very future-forward when it comes to his work. As we talked, I kept thinking “hey, so-and-so is doing that now…except Michael was doing it years ago”! Aside from being a graphic designer and web designer, Michael is also a jazz pianist, and we talked a bit on how music influences his design work and on the vibrant design scene in upstate New York.

Stephen TopsyI first ran across Stephen Topsy online years ago when he was doing iOS design work. Now he’s a programmer, but still dabbles in design as well. We spoke about how Aaliyah helped him get his spark for design, how motivation came from one of his high school teachers, and touched on LA’s diverse tech and design scene.

Khalil BeyKhalil Bey and I met almost ten years ago, and I’ve followed him from his early days at Stanford up to his current post at Google. We talked about his work with the big G, how he first got involved in programming, how his father was a big influence on his current work, and about diversity in Silicon Valley.

Enjoy!

Buck!When I interview someone, I usually ask them if there’s anyone else they know who we should reach out to and feature. BUCK! came highly referred by Leon Scott, so I knew I had to contact him. If there’s one thing I can say about Buck!, it’s that the man has two things: passion and patience.

The passion is about his work, and he’s done design for Heineken, Scion, Timberland, Adidas, and more. The patience is probably from dealing with me since we had to re-record this interview several times because of technical difficulties. (Sorry!)

Even with all that going on, we had a pretty good chat about motivation, networking, and the creative struggle. I think that’s something we can ALL empathize with as creative people. Let me know what you think!

Crystal FlemisterI first met Crystal Flemister years ago when we were both designers at AT&T. Since then, she’s moved on to CNN and has been making a name for herself in the local fashion scene with her company Pistol Whipped Cream. We talk about her time at the Art Institute of Atlanta, her inspirations, and…Kanye West? Yep, a little bit of everything. Check it out!
