For me, one of the highlights of being a designer is sharing. A few weeks ago Revision Path founder Maurice Cherry reached out to see if I was interested in doing an interview for his Podcast. What an honor! Revision Path highlights Black designers and developers. The interviews cover a range of topics, from how they got their start to how they envision the future of design. Why is this important? There has been more discussion about encouraging diversity in the design and web fields. This should not start when we enter the work force, but in grade school. In a previous post, I discussed my experiences talking with middle school and high school students about opportunities in the creative job market and how it can have a positive impact on their current studies. Progress is being made, but there is still work to be done.
I love the diversity amongst the different designers. They come from all over and work in a range of disciplines, educational paths and institutions, and also have an even broader range of interests outside of design. My absolute favorite interviews are Ced Funches and Emory Douglas. If you have a minute, check out the other interviews and show Revision Path some love by rating the Podcast!
