Rank #1: 280: Jamika D. Burge, PhD

Podcast cover
Read more

February on Revision Path is sponsored by Capital One, and we're bringing you the stories of four Black women that are part of the Capital One Digital team.

Meet Jamika D. Burge, PhD, dean of Eno University and a "human computer scientist" who works at the intersection of tech and design. She focuses on inclusitvity in AI and machine learning, and truly proves that tech and design aren't just one-dimensional subjects.

We spoke on her work at Capital One as she walked me through how Capital One uses technology in their digital team, and she talked about blackComputeHER, an organization and conference she created that is dedicated to supporting computer science and STEM education and workforce development for Black girls and women. Listen on for Jamika's thoughts on computer science at HBCUs, Black tech conferences, and more!

Big thanks to Capital One for sponsoring this month of Revision Path.

The Capital One Digital team is a diverse group of people who work together to build great products for the enterprise and to disrupt how people interact with their money, their bank, and their financial lives.

Rank #2: 268: Nicholas Johnson

Podcast cover
Read more

I met Nicholas Johnson this year at the AIGA Awards Gala, and after just a few minutes of speaking with him, I knew I had to have him on the podcast. Nicholas is committed to more representation for designers of color, and that's reflected both through his work and in an upcoming book project.

We talked about where Nicholas' desire for representation comes from, and from there we went into a discussion on the notion of a Black design aesthetic, and Nicholas shared the advice that's stuck with him throughout his design journey, as well as what he wants to work on in the next five years. You'll definitely see and hear more from Nicholas in the future!

Rank #3: 269: Jason Murphy

Podcast cover
Read more

Jason Murphy is a legend in the design industry. He's most known as being one of a half dozen design directors who oversaw the brand for Nike, but he's also created concepts for BET, SEIU, Discovery, and many other companies and brands. Now Jason is doing his own thing as a creative director and chief creative officer, so we had a great conversation not just about his past success, but also about the future.

Jason walked me through a typical day for him, and we spoke about his talk earlier this year at the AIGA Design Conference and went from there into his time at Nike with the Nike Equality Campaign. Jason also spoke about how the Organization of Black Designers influenced him, shared what it was like working at BET in its heyday, and talked about the design scene in Portland and what he wants to do next. Jason calls himself a lover of all design, and after this interview, I couldn't agree more!

Podcast cover

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!

Rank #5: 290: Will Miner

Podcast cover
Read more

A common theme on Revision Path is that there's no set path to being a part of the design industry. Will Miner, the senior director of UX at the education company 2U, is a prime example of this. As technology helps level the playing field for a number of different areas of study, professionals like Will help make sure that experience is simple and user-friendly.

We started off talking about Will's work at 2U, including building and leading teams while keeping diversity and accessibility in mind. He also shared how he first got into design via plant science, why he decided getting an MBA would help further his design career, and even shared news about his next big move. Will is a prime example that there are lots of ways to succeed in this field!

There's a lot of A's in this episode — Amsterdam, Android, and Annyce Davis! As the software team lead for ZOLA Electric, Annyce has helped the company become the leading renewable energy brand in Africa. Apart from this, Annyce is an international conference speaker and author, and shares her knowledge with developers all over the world.

Our conversation started off with a look at a typical day at ZOLA Electric, and Annyce talked about what drew her to the Android ecosystem (and to the world of software development in general). She also shared what it's like to live in Amsterdam, spoke about how public speaking has helped her career, and gave some great advice for anyone looking to work abroad. Annyce is proof that being visible and being an advocate for yourself really pays off!

RJ Harrington is partner and lead creative at Twenty and 3, a one-stop creative shop that builds engaging brands from the ground up.

We talked about where the idea to start Twenty and 3 came from, how they approach client work, and what RJ thinks about the design community in Atlanta. She also shared a bit about her early career before breaking out on her own, and how taking that leap and paying it forward to others has helped keep her motivated for success. If you've been interested in starting your own agency, then this interview is definitely one that's worth a listen. Thanks RJ!

Rank #8: 244: Brandon Breaux

Podcast cover
Read more

Like several guests I've had on the show, I knew of Brandon Breaux's work before I even knew who he was! He may be known best as the artist behind the mixtape covers for Chance the Rapper, but Brandon's art spans much further than that. And no matter how far his art takes him, he always represents for Chicago.

Actually, Chicago is where our conversation began! We talked about the local design scene and how he feels being a part of it as his profile has grown, and from there Brandon told me about his creative journey through a few schools before settling into the projects he does now. He also shared some of his artistic influences, and gave some insight on his creative strategy and why mental health awareness is such a huge factor in his work. There's no telling where Brandon's work will take him next, so keep an eye out for him!

Rank #9: Anthony Harrison

Podcast cover

We're starting off 2020 with the one and only Anthony Harrison. If you loved the streetwear ads of the 90's from brands like Akademiks and Nike, then you've seen Anthony's work. Currently, Anthony is overseeing graphic design and identity at Adidas over in Germany, and helps makes the intangible tangible for the massive multinational sportswear company.

Our conversation started off with Anthony talking about his work at Adidas, and from there he guided me through a retrospective of his career as a designer. We also talk about moving past the romantic area of design, the top two skills a creative person really needs to know, and what success looks like for him know at this point in his career. Anthony's longevity in the industry and the scope of his work are worthy of praise, and I think beginning the year with this interview is a great way to get those creative juices flowing!

Creative director Ida Woldemichael is definitely someone to keep your eye on! Currently she's working for Everytown for Gun Safety, but before that, she served as design lead for Hillary for America and even coined the campaign's widely-used catchphrase "I'm With Her"!

Our conversation began by talking about Ida's current role, and from there we went into her work for the Hillary for America campaign and what she learned during that time. Ida also teaches at NYU, so she shared what she's learned from her students and where she design going into the future. Thank you Ida for showing how design has a huge impact on the world around us!

We spoke about Jonathan's recent exhibition at this year's Typeforce, and from there they shared a peek into their creative process which challenges binary thoughts by layering expriences and pursuing different points of view through visual outputs.

Rank #12: 324: Jerome Harris

Podcast cover
Read more

When I first heard about Jerome Harris' exhibit "As, Not For: Dethroning Our Absolutes," I knew I had to interview him for the podcast. I was thrilled to hear him speak at this year's Black in Design Conference back in October, and this conversation follows directly after that event.

Jerome does it all — he's a graphic designer, an educator, a writer, a curator, a DJ, and even a choreographer! We touched on all those aspects in this interview, starting off with talking about his current work at Housing Works. From there, we discussed the trajectory of Black graphic design, and how that guided him through his studies at Temple and Yale and inspired his exhibit. Jerome also shares some of his current influences, and we step into the future a bit and look at what Jerome would want to work on in 2025.

Keep an eye out for Jerome — his perspective and candor are a refreshing antidote to current design discourse, and I think we'll see a lot more from him soon!

Dexter Ferguson might be a young designer in this industry, but he is committed to using his abilities to really help change the world. By day, he works at Airbus Aerial as a product designer, helping insurance companies make decisions on damages and risks. When work is over, Dexter puts on his entrepreneur hat as the founder of DebtBennies, a job listing board with companies that will help you pay down your student loans. Pretty innovative!

We talked about how Dexter is able to balance both 9-to-5 work with running his own side projects, and he even gave some really great advice to those out there looking to get to the next level in their career. We also spent some time examining Atlanta’s design and tech scene, with Dexter sharing some his favorite things to do in the city. Dexter’s philosophy of striving for progress ensures that his trajectory in this industry is going to be a positive one, and I think we’ll be hearing a lot more from him in the future!

Atlanta is a city full of possibilities, and Lisa Babb is the kind of person who not only sees them all, but encourages others to see them as well. As an educator, Lisa teaches the next generation of designers that there is room for the table for them in this industry. And as assistant director at Museum of Design Atlanta (MODA), she also helps bring design and art into the local community.

Our conversation started off with a closer look at MODA and talking about how Lisa got her start as a designer and what eventually drew her to Atlanta. From there, we discussed the state of the design community here in the city, as well as how design education has changed over the years. If you're ever in Atlanta, head on down to MODA and say hi!

As creative director and partner of the award-winning, Brooklyn-based studio, he and his team have done all kinds of work from websites to fashion to large scale exhibitions. And there's even more!

Jonathan talked to me about his early days at Kent State University, and how his love for architecture planted the seed for what would become WSDIA.

One thing that can be hard for new designers to grasp is that users are the most important part of design. Shaw Strothers is a huge advocate of this, and it's reflected in his work at UX lead at User Insight in Atlanta, GA.

Shaw started off talking about how he got into UX after a start in computer science and an early start as an industrial designer. From there, he talked about Hue Design Summit, an annual event put on by Shaw and the Hue Collective for design professionals of color, and we spoke about the Atlanta design scene and how it's evolved over the years.

What does the "middle" of a designer's career look like? Does the "middle" exist outside of a corporate company's career ladder? I examine these questions and more with this week's guest, the one and only Chanel James. As a designer for EAB, Chanel works on production and design and for a number of different projects, all with the goal of making education smarter and our communities stronger.

Chanel talked about what attracted her to work for EAB, and also spoke on her work with AIGA DC on their board of directors. We also discussed the South and design, how she acquired a love for illustration from a popular kid's television show, and yes, we went into the mid-career designer topic I mentioned earlier. Chanel lives by the motto "make it pretty", and no matter her role or profession, she definitely brings the skills and experience to the table that make her motto a fact!

Rank #18: 255: Fahamu Pecou

Podcast cover
Read more

Fahamu Pecou and his art push boundaries, challenge classic representations, and have solidified his place as one of the most important contemporary artists of the 21st century. His work combines observations on hip-hop, the fine art world, and pop culture, and this is expressed through paintings, performance art, and academic work as well. I was really lucky to get a chance to talk with Fahamu fresh off his most recent accomplishment -- earning his PhD from Emory University!

Our conversation started with Fahamu giving a retrospective on his work, and talked about his multidisciplinary practice and hinted at his next project. Fahamu also talked about his journey to Atlanta, how the city helped shape him as an artist, and how he sees Atlanta as a city for the arts. I also asked how his work has been perceived as his public profile has grown, and I think you'll definitely want to hear Fahamu's answer about that. If you haven't heard of Fahamu Pecou before now, I guarantee you'll come away from this interview with a good idea about who he is and what he represents for the culture!

Rank #19: 257: Sean Fahie

Podcast cover

When I first had the idea to do a month dedicated to Atlanta's art scene, Sean Fahie's name immediately came to mind. Sean really does it all -- he's a designer, an artist, an illustrator, an author, a film maker, a podcaster, and more. I knew that this conversation was really going to be a good one, and Sean did not disappoint.

Sean started off talking about the release of his third book, Chocolate Covered Honey Buns, and he spoke about what it's like for him as a working artist. Sean also talked about what drew him to Atlanta, how the city has changed over the years, and we take some questions from the Revision Path audience as well! He even shared some of the Atlanta artists we should all look out for, and talked about his upcoming book tour (coming to a city near you). Thank you Sean for representing Atlanta and for sharing your talents with the world!

Rank #20: 249: Mikell Fine-Iles

Podcast cover
Read more

There's no single way to becoming a designer these days, which I suppose is one of the most interesting things about this industry. Mikell Fine Iles, for example, grew up in San Francisco around art and design, went to Clark-Atlanta University for school, studied more design in Denmark, and worked for agencies Noise and JWT before his current position at Bloomberg as design director. And there's more!

We started our conversation talking about Mikell's day-to-day work at Bloomberg, and from there talked about his time in Atlanta as a student and young professional, discussed what HBCUs can do to prepare the next generation of designers, and he talked about his time studying design in Denmark! Mikell's talent, drive and hustle have really helped propel him to success.
