"All right. Let's get to the interview this week. I'm talking with danny shaw design educator located in new york city. Let's start the show all right so tell us who you are and what you do all right. Thanks for having me. I'm danny shaw. I'm a design educator. Most of the time also product manager when need to be a project manager as well and at the co- at the end of the day. I'm still a designer multi multi-disciplined design of course across the digital space. Okay how has twenty twenty one been for you so far. Twenty twenty one i mean. What are we with thirteen days. Then will far personally has been fine. You know but just looking at the world around me. You would be hard pressed to say that right but personally has been fine so far. So i'm grateful for that How was last year. I know you know the pandemic really kind of turned everyone's world upside down to some sort away. How did you get the year. Last year was a lot. I think a lot of people was ally of me personally. A lot of personal relationships it greatly impacted things for instance my grandparents who visit my grandparents all the time multiple times throughout the eddie live atlanta. I have not been able to see them. And that's really been a tough pill to swallow on person aside and not being able to see other relatives so that's definitely been hard but then which is probably roundabout way on the professional side. It's it's been probably one of the most busiest of hat professionally. A lot of business in the landscape changes so fast rapidly where the digital acceleration accelerated even more than the pace that it was already at which impacted my inbox in my email. People me up for advice and counsel and job. So it's been a mixed bag is definitely been a mix. Let's focus on work for a minute here. You're the director of digital design and strategy for a company called brand share. What does brands share. Do all right. So shit is e commerce marketing company in for a lot of people who may not be familiar with that concept and idea. We work with a lot of. Cpg burns consumer packaged goods such as emmons but if a lot of the packaging goods that we see on a regular basis as consumers so we work with these companies in regards to the marketing strategy. Introducing them to the market gaining insights and data on these new products that's being introduced to the market and we partner with them on their strategy and execution and how the scale they are offering to the audience at large in a nutshell. It comes across multiple channels digital in person shipping. We do a lot of experts. You things as well so Touch on a lot of areas with these brands trying to get as far as being the partner between the brands and these new products. That's trying to the market. In services and reaching that specific audience that the china targeting reach for their respective products. How did you first get started there at the time. I was transitioning from a position that i was working. At in north carolina as product manager and at the time there was some organizational changes. And i was looking in north carolina and and doing that and just going back and forth between new york and chronic to get my fares in order and iran ran to the person who became my manager So we just ran into each other. We used to work in the past at time. inca essence. She just told me she was working there. She was she just started. She was trying to build a team. She was looking for some freelance designers and asked me if i would be open to discuss it and i i'm open to discussing. I was just transitioned from the last role and said hey you know this might be something of interest for me. While i'm transitioning to china figure out the next and then it just happened to work out. Well we worked well together. I've worked with the rest of the team. And i'm working on the designs and floor the digital initiatives and then it just kind of kept going from there into full-time role and then may stand with the company and so forth. What does the team. Makeup look like autumn. Agean you've got designers because you mentioned design but do you work with so i work with everybody. We work with everybody. So i have Outside of me to other designers on my team i work with the vp of marketing. A record the bp digital. We're we're not. We're about fifty. I'll not that big. So we're about fifty person staff based in new york and of pennsylvania so i pretty much everybody to chairman of the company as well That the president. It really depends on the project. What's what needs to be done. You get to intimate environment. So i kind of get to work with everybody account managers and so forth as well now given that the company sizes is so small like what's a typical daylight now because i would imagine you all are not able to get together in an in an office or you now while the pennsylvania offices so they are all the way the to set up a lot of the new york office we are. We're all remote right to be clear. And we were based in midtown manhattan midtown manhattan but The pa office depending on the circumstances on what might be needed. Maybe like a photo shoot or something like that. Some members still going to office but for the most part is still pretty much remote as well. So yeah but a typical day. Nowadays is really. Just you know looking at Obviously out calendar in the before just trying to coordinate on the bear. Risk projects and initiatives looking at tickets. You know gotta look at these tickets to see what's to was the status of status meetings just to kind of make sure that we're on track with a lot of things calls a foul benders looking at roadmap. There's a lot of. I would say a lot of time. Put was president planning a lot more so than in the past so so to speak. It really varies. I really wouldn't even know what to say. What did with low but my on a log. I'm pretty much aware of what my day is already gonna look like just because i leave when i log out. I just see what. I have lined up for the next day. So usually it's a mix between meetings. Some our collaborate with the design team once needed as well as account manager for any new requests checking on the status of ongoing projects as well touching base with the vp of digital. For any other items. That might be down the line sometimes. I am checking in with some of our dev engineers team on the status of things as managing few about digital initiatives and ecommerce sites. Yeah it really ranges mountain towns. I'm looking at analytics in number. Metrics is to see if you know some insights in in regards to the strategy. And make sure we're on pace. We're doing the right thing. There's room for improvement in always looking for some wounds improvements as well so it really varies. Throughout the day. Monday tuesday could be two completely different. Days does sound like a lot. Yes it's it's cool but yeah it can vary a lot. Have you had to adopt any sort of new like strategies or workflows over the past year. Yeah sure well. They tend to crack jokes on me. Because i am like the uae. Try to organize one. You know being a project manager and in the past and project management roles a really try to align and keep things as organiz as feasibly possible. So i think i've definitely had been allowed strong advocate for that. Not just for myself but across the team especially during kobe right so that one thing that be really just had to really make adjustments for the communication on big on communication. I think a lot of not just designed problems. I think a lot of problems in general could be resolved if we communicate elopement so readily had to be strategic in how we communicate and open up communications to help foster solutions especially now that we're not all in this together we can't just walk over to someone and so forth so the communication was definitely gonna be safe there and also iguanas when everything for his hidden in in the world changed right before. Is i do think aloud people kind of know what to do right. So we worked in mit working past normal times and things like that and i think for me was at a place where it had to be diligent about. Okay shut off. There's only so much you can do. And i think not just for me. A lot of people had to make that adjustment as well with the state of the world. Yeah i know a lot of think. It was last year right around the time that the that the pandemic happened. Or the the lockdown started to happen. I was talking with a lotta people for the show who they had either just started a new job in like now it's day for and their mentor. Work from home continually or they're having a tough time to transition from being in the office to now having to sort of work in this synchronous sort of fashion right. And i will say to me. Just because i've had roles in the past where i've worked remote merola north carolina. It was a big remote work environment. Culture prior i would go into the office but it was nothing to see a member who was working remote that day for various reasons. It was very flexible. People have kids people have health issues. We worked with teams across the country. Kind of remote teams across the country engineer so it was never never felt like everybody had to be all his so for me. I was comfortable already transitioned into a more remote environment but this has been the most. I don't know if this is the most remote. I just to show. Has there been like one thing that you've gotten that's really helped you make that adjustment pretty. Well bob meditated. On is i. I really got into a meditation a bit more. Just read different philosophies at least for me just trying to make sense of everything that was going on you know i. I don't have the head. Space is the head. Space app was very very helpful. Helped me sleep more consistently in and things like that. We all just trying to figure out what works for us right. I didn't feel i needed. I wasn't really looking for anything. I was going to make me a better employee anyway. On it I think i was more concerned with was going to help me maintain some schmidt to help during all this time. Yeah so like when it comes to working on a new project or with a new client. What does that creative process look like with you being the director strategy. I know you've got the team under you. What does that sort of process look like from start to finish well. It really varies. Because the relationship that we have with declines it changes in some cases we are more or less facilitators and creative may already common just working on a strategy how to execute it for them and what are the proper market in digital media channels so to speak and then other times. We are developing in design in house. And when that happens of course that's when the standard procedures. What's what's the goal was the objectives. What are we trying to achieve was the demographics that research behind it first before we start opening programs right trying to get an understanding of what the client needs. What goes let's the. Kpi was the measurement of success prior to all of that and then basically looking at our offerings the now tools and resources to see how we can best executed across the board. It may not always be digital 'execution it might be exponential execution might be Just some inserts in getting them the scanty oracle's taken you know micro sites and things like that might be a newsletter campaigns and stuff like that so it does vary but i think we start each project just trying to warn just get an understanding of what are the key goals and objectives and. How do we facilitate that. That making sure that we have the right information to go about executing properly across creative across strategy and course execution as well

"That is just an important part of our story. The design of business the business of design is brought to you by mail chimp. We talked to some people working for a male chimp from their homes about what creative leadership looks like in these uncertain times. My name is Jean Lee Jean. Lee is senior vice president of customer experience design. Gene. Talked about why mail chimp has been able to adjust. So well, during the pandemic, we have a culture and a motto Call Bomb Listen Harb Change Fast, and it made it even more important during the time books Kobe. Or customers going through and so as a company some of the things that we've done is we actually have offered free standard counts or public service organization.

"Outlet celebrating other people. I'm sort of tying this back into ebony in a way because. Like I said I grew up on that magazine grew up on jet magazine I? Think a lot of black Americans grew up with that magazine in their orbit and while I remember reading it as a kid I certainly don't remember like synthesizing I think most of the information that was in it like it's a lot of stuff that I don't. Really get now until I'm an adult that I can look back on it and think, wow, ebony was was it like yes ebony was a magazine from Johnson Publishing Company, but Johnson Publishing Company also put out books that they sold in their magazine Johnson publishing also owns a beauty company that put out hair care for men hair care for women that. Advertise in the magazine. So like not only are they selling you this representation of blackness but now you can also go and buy it like you can be a part of it by you know buying a do care kit or or a relax from ravine or something like that, and there was so interesting how ebony just kind of had their hand in. Every pot about driving forward the sort of positive aspirational model of blackness. You know really during a time when I think of course, we're still fighting for civil rights and just fighting for equal representation. They really were at the forefront of that sometime in in high school I, remember doing a book report on John Johnson's biography succeeding against the odds. I think being able to see how much one person was able to really dry forward this conversation about representation and about even just like the stories of what other black people are doing out there in a way has found its into my work through the black weblog awards is certainly the revision path. So there ten years, ten year interval between those two things two, thousand and three. You start the black weblog awards, ten years. Later you start revision path, which is a story in itself. Important work he's done for I think four hundred episodes. Could you frame it for our listeners who don't know what revision path is? Sure. So revision path is a weekly showcase of the world's best. Black Graphic designers, web designers, and web developers. Really. It's really kind of say digital creatives in general because we certainly had more people that are kind of outside of those three particular roles. and. We just do end up conversations about the work that they're doing. We talk about their story how they got to where they are now. And depending on whom the guest is, there may be other things that we try to dive into. For example we had. An expert from expert that's living in Amsterdam. This was I don't know maybe around two, thousand sixteen or so right as trump got elected and we had like this great conversation around. What's it like being a black ex pats over there and do you. Have a feeling of wanting to come back to the states and like just how are you feeling in general? Even. During pandemic, we've been every person that I've interviewed I sort of touched on in some kind of way like. I just a gut check. Mike how are you feeling like where you at? So it's really more about putting forth these people's individual stories. I really try to take myself out of it as much as possible even though I'm the host i. kind of just feel like I'm more of the. Conduit for like uplift what other people are doing because I feel like you know in design media that's important. I think if you go into most bookstores and are probably looking for design books, design magazines, you just don't see a lot of people of color and you definitely don't see a lot of black people and granted. PODCAST is not a book podcast is not a magazine, but this is certainly where people's attention is that right now in terms of media and so revision path is able to be this kind of weekly. Digest of you kind of getting a sense of who this person is why are they important and how you can really follow them and learn more about them I think it can be very easy to kind of fall into the pattern of saying what you do for your job is just to work. which it is, but also based on what it is that you do where you are in your career who you are as a person and the the trials and tribulations that you've had to go through to get where you are like that's a story. That's a story that you know wants to hear that someone out there can empathize with now it sure is and I I was telling Jessica before. We got on with you that I had spent some time pouring over the archives and then I found myself drawn by memory to your work around black. Panther. And it was so much fun to be a and to listen to you be a fan behind the scenes and you teach us about these creative people who made this world for us and I was wondering if you could help put into perspective. Why Mc Bozeman, and his amazing colleagues in the entire ecosystem mattered so much and what they've done for representation in the creative and design fields. That's a heavy question. I really think you know with with Chadwick you know rest in peace to him and of course, condolences to his friends and family and people that he's worked with. His representation of Black Panther I think was just something bigger than a role in a movie if anyone can think back to that time. I say from twenty, seventeen, two, thousand, eighteen when the movie was announced and. The fervor around that movie and that role. I've never seen anything like that. It was so much more than just oh, he's just as actor in a marvel movie I mean he's playing this iconic superhero. The black. Panther of course has that association with the actual Black Panther Party, the political movement here in the United States and then for Chabba too I think come from an HVAC. You have also played all of these other real life black. Heroes Thurgood. Marshall, Jackie. Robinson. James Brown. It's something that I think in hindsight we're finally seeing just how much he was able to shoulder through representation and be able to kind of take on all those larger than life roles. It's I don't know. It's so hard to kind of wrap my head around just how. Huge that is he. He. Brought Marvel. I mean, well, one to the company he brought marvel just so much. Energy and diversity an interest from people but he really really really united people through that role and was still like moving forward to do more things. I know he has a project coming out soon I think it's Ma Rainey's black bottom, which is one of the players from August Wilson Century Cycle. At. That's that's a whole other kind of representation of blackness I granted. It's fictional, but it's still something that is steeped in this. American black ethos.

"Really talked to them seriously about their work and and these are people at all different levels not just you know junior people starting out or anything like that this this is at all different levels it's the first time anyone ever really care to talk to them about what they know and why they love what they do and why they're a designer a why they're in illustrator anything like that so i think that is what is really important that every designer has a story to tell and i think it's important to kind of hold the mic and let them tell that story yeah i i really feel i have always long failed since i met you many years ago that i felt a kinship with revision path that i also feel with with with the show that we're on right now which is that there's yet you have some famous people on yeah you have some really accomplished people on but i love to catch ching people on the come up and then going back and saying hey you know what i had so and so on the show and folk did know who that person was now look what they're doing you know i'm not saying i gave him a stepping stool but i you know i gave them a thumbs up i gave him an up vote when started you know what i mean you gave you gave them the mike you gave them a platform to at least tell people what it is doing because there's no telling who's going to listen to the episode once you put it out there yeah exactly like i'm looking back at my wallet faces and i see kimberly bryant from black girls code had her on two thousand twelve wow years ago you know dozens and dozens it doesn't great stories like that a fun people doing amazing work and catching them while they are already going to become superstars whether they're on our shows or not it's just so nice to look back and say look at that that at corpus that that wall of content that we created in having made hundreds of hours of audio has got to be really satisfying yeah and i mean even for them like i know we've had a couple of repeat guests that of comeback and just you know have said like this what i've been up to this what i've been working on since the show and they're like they really love that revision path is giving this voice for black designers and developers and creators to really tell their story about what's going on because they may not get approached by any other design media to tell it they may just have to say it on twitter they may have to be their own cheerleader and in that way revision path kind of you know as a megaphone for the work that they're doing yeah i also like the term that you used before when you said monoculture because you're you're saying it's important to show people that there's lots of different folks out there doing amazing work and i i like that it it's not just hey look black developers designers there's a spectrum within any subgroup of people but it's interesting to see techies complain about things like browser monoculture you hear that a lot amongst designers like wow we shouldn't have just chrome so so we're upset about there being just one browser but we're not upset about there being just one kind of designer one flavor of developer that's interesting isn't it it is so i think that if we as techies no matter what color we are what our background is can agree that lots of different kinds of technology or no there's not just one language there's not just one browser there's not just one renderers there's not just one design that seems uncontroversial we should apply that to our lives as well and the more kind of mixed up our group is our friends are our designers are the better the web is going to be for everybody i agree i dig it so people can check you out at.

"Online when you started provisioned path ten five years ago six years ago what was the environment like like online were there a lot of visible designers designers personalities that you would go and say oh yeah i know that name i know honey i know 'cause he tillman or or is that a new thing the star designer the visible designer no i think the visible designer has always been there because the problem that design media has is that they tend to regurgitate the same seven or eight dozen people out on conferences and podcasts and things like that so there there's always been that level of visible designer i think the problem is that visible designer has always looked one way it's always been you know one certain type of person and so the the look of what a designer could be your who had designer could be is i think it's drastically changed as i've started revision path i don't wanna be boastful and say that i've really helped to change it a lot i just said to own that though didn't we just talk about that so i mean i i hope that you know with all the people that i've been able to interview and get out there that i've helped to change those perceptions and certainly people that i have interviewed for the show of now gone on and they're doing no really big and great amazing things so is changing that definition of what a designer looks like in what a designer can do and who had designers should be that has definitely changed up a lot since i started revision beth i'm curious if you think what do you think that the white folks or non black folks who are listening and they hear that there is a show that's all about black designers in it you know talks to black designers in front end developers would we what do we tell them about the importance or why why is show is needed like what would what does race matter for web design well i think it matters because there's not just one particular race of person that's using the web so there certainly is not you know more than one particular ways that's it's building the web i mean the web is out there for everybody and you don't wanna have just or you don't wanna at least showcase just a certain type of designer designing things for a big diverse global audience you wanna show a diverse global group of designers that's doing the same thing i think people will look at revision bath and they'll see our archives page and they see this wall of black faces they might think that as a monolith but there's a lot of diversity within that monolith there's young old gay straight trends in the us not in the us there across all different parts of the design industry summer developers summer public speaker some are educators like there's a a huge swath of diversity of what could be viewed as this sort of monolithic said and i can tell you know for say maybe ninety percent of the people who have had on the show it was their very first interview and it was their very first time anyone had ever.

"Get the full package but it depends on what your project is you know if you're a multinational you know multimillion dollar company and you're only going to him for us or something like that that might be an issue you know because you certainly might have the the the manpower or the budget to hire someone or to you know bring on a designer to actually do something more custom but i see so you're saying that these these five dollar themes are making you know design and presumably design if some quality available to to regular folks like you know like myself and the listeners but then at some point you have to decide your corporate identity requires accustomed set up a custom designing it's time to start paying someone some some money and also i mean you get what you pay for i mean if you pay for something that's five dollars the other thing that these marketplaces do is that they really don't give you that much of a preview of what's under the hood you don't really know what the documentation or the options panels or anything look like until you purchased it i know that i bought some things and i've gotten the documents nation in everything and it's trash and i can barely use it but i paid x amount of dollars for and oftentimes you can't get that money back so he can be a little bit for crap shoot but you get what you pay for yeah definitely speaking if we get what you pay for i'm starting to be frustrated as i see people saying give me some design i'll give you exposure how do you feel about that i mean exposures for cameras so not a fan not a fan i mean the thing with the internet is that anyone can have some level of exposure i don't i don't buy that whole oh if you do it for xyz exposure thing i really hate when that comes particularly from celebrities who you would think would know better i think it's one thing if they feel like you have to pay your dues but but nah i don't i don't buy that somehow it seems like the celebrities like they're the ones that we think have the most money but they're the ones that get the most free stuff why don't mean get free stuff for the people i mean politicians do the same thing so yeah kind of that same thing if they can get it for free they will that's not cool so so you've interviewed two hundred and fifty plus designers developers front end people i don't know about you but i've always struggled a little bit with imposter syndrome eddie it feel like a phony when you look at that kind of like crush of talented people that you've had on the show do you think that all these visible designers are giving other designers sense of imposter syndrome i mean there's so much great design on the web right now i think sometimes sometimes that can happen i know there are times when i reach out to people for the show and they've seen that i've interviewed you know a christie tillman or any apar or or you know sarah hunt young or something like that they see that i've interviewed these well known designers and they'll say oh i'm not at that level yet i'm not there yet and oftentimes i have to tell them well that's the reason why i wanna talk to you i don't think it's the one thing that i think i really like about revision path is that i've tried to get people at all different levels i've got students i've got captains of industry i've got educators i've got junior senior designers i think it's more important that they just tell their story about where they're at because where you're at is not where you're always going to be so even if someone thinks that oh i'm not i'm not good enough to be on here whatever i'll tell them if i've reached out to you to be on the show i feel like you have some that's worth sharing that's hopefully they don't feel that way but i do know that some do.

"The other windows developer windows designer feel about that i mean so i just always been more comfortable using windows i have used you know max before i mean certainly i think everyone of a certain age is probably used the apple two e and even when i was in high school we had like power max i think or macintoshes but once i got into college i just switched over to windows and at that was that i mean for me it's just been a more comfortable environment to work in i wish that there wasn't this weird stupid division that i think parts of designed community put up between windows am mac as it relates to the tools that we use i hate that it's gotten divisive to that point where mac users have these special designed tools at only they use that they're trying to sort of make industry standard but it can't become industry standard if windows users can't use them yes i'm talking about sketch i don't like that kind of sort of weird division with with kind of the way the design tools are right now but i don't think being a designer and being on a mac are are like requirements you know i think it's that way because perhaps i think it's more of an used that word aesthetic again i feel like it's another kind of steady choice people think that you know max just look better they you know render the fonts better what have you maybe the tools are better etc blah blah blah but i mean at the end of the day you know as a designer it's it doesn't really the tools that you use i think are not important you know if you're on a mac or on windows if you can design you can design so i don't like the fact that the tools are kind of furthering this weird separation when it's it's sort of standing in the way of having designers create that's my feel at least i think the idea of the aesthetic with a sense of like i bought into this ecosystem like i mean i'm team i phone because i i actually approve of the aesthetic but you know it just it feels like my space it feels like my place and presumably use windows in use windows because we also feel like that but then you feel like well but now this tool i wanna use isn't available to me on this platform so what do you do when the app you want is on the other platform but that doesn't feel like home you know i'm not all window so like my main my main computer and my work laptop or windows but i also have a ipad mini that's mounted to my desk i'm looking at it right now and i have ipad pro so there are some things that i will still kind of use the mac ecosystem for now granted i don't i mean i don't think sketches no it's not available for ipad pro so there are some things that i still would not be able to use because there's a difference between you know mac os and i o s so i mean tool wise i don't know the only issue i really run up against is sketch i found that there are there's always going to be a crafty developer mike create a windows version of a mac only trauma tool hasn't really happened with sketch it i guess you could call adobe x d that but i don't use that either so it's like a creative cloud person i emigrated cloud person i am mostly these days in photoshop illustrator in design and premier and a little bit of after effects yeah and audition of course for for audio yeah exactly myself as well i got the getting the creative cloud subscription has been super useful actually i like the way that everything's moving to subscriptions like this i know some people don't dig it but back in the day i didn't have five hundred dollars to buy word or five hundred dollars buy photoshop but i can probably swing nineteen ninetyfive and yeah for me my job.

"Play around with and test out it's really flexible ob is really really flexible what is this rewind feature i'm trying to understand what i'm looking at is this like source control but it's done like a dvr that's a that's a good point so glitch rewind is a new feature that we came out with not too long ago because we just came out of beta and what glitz rewind does is it reinvents version control and undo you know when you're learning something or when you're really kind of trying to figure something out we wanna put that confidence back into coding so with rewind you can undo any of your mistakes at any time just by clicking the rewind button and dragging the scrubber across the time line back to a point or state in your code where things were better yeah and it's interesting because you know i've been i've been running around trying to break it figure out what i can do to break clips because you know hackers always fair and i was moving too fast maybe and i got some kind of an error and it looks like you are using get underneath so you're almost teaching them source control without making them think about get that's right that's pretty slick as a really nice way to get people up to speed but it's in a safe place for lack of a better word it's a safe place it's very easy to share your work you can invite others to to work on a project with you and even if you get stuck on anything there's also another new feature that we have put out i think we're sort of internally calling it handwriting or at least that's how i've heard it called internally were you can highlight a line that you might be having a problem with an a.

"You build the app of your dreams it's not code penn but it's also not an id it's something else yes it's something else all right i've tried to do with glitches really kind of open up you know design and development for a new audience we want to eliminate the barriers that you know kinda prevent people from wanting to learn how how to create on the web so you can either create a brand new blank project you can remix any of the projects that we have on our website or at any of our collections it's really open for people to just explore and learn and you know have a good time on the web you know we we've taken out all the you know kind of barriers in jerky stuff that sort of prevents people from wanting to learn how to code or to to really get active on the way we want to bring the fun back we wanna bring back that sort of you know late nineties geo cities angel fire tripod kinda fun with creation on the web yeah it's interesting because it is clearly designed in that it is it is thoughtful or it doesn't look slap together it has a design language the buttons the hovers everything is clean but it also has an end i don't mean this in any way in a to insult it it has a a nineties kind of silliness or sloppiness almost like i was looking at a little a little cat popped up you know you don't really think of a corporate site with a little cat in the corner click on the cat didn't talks about like here's some new stuff and then there's like a little dog with his and then there's like oh here's a enemy to gift from no limit records like it does it is both simultaneously well designed and thoughtful but also silly in its color scheme and its use of animated gifts and stuff it's it's kind of a foot in both worlds you know what i mean here i think the kids these days would call that aesthetic is that the aesthetic is that the imagine aesthetic in like a like a model line font spaced out people who are listening what i'm talking about it's very we do intentionally make sure that we have that kind of fun design so it becomes more profitable you know i really want to empower people to create and if it just looks like some boring state id than people might not want to want to use it yeah exactly and this is a great way to pick up you know node programming java script programming whether it be on the back end of the front end and then maybe graduate to a an id lakers studio code at some point down the road when you've learned which wanna learn yeah and with the way that we have set up you can even you know export to get hub if you are more familiar with get up or you wanna graduate to using you know kind of a different environment like that you can even do that you can import repos from get hub just to kind of.

"Designed podcast for about and by designers but it's two hundred fifty episodes and it is a black designers so for someone who says there aren't two hundred and fifty black designers sounds to me like you've still got hundreds and hundreds of hundreds of shows to do beyond this you don't have any trouble finding guests oh no there's no trouble with with finding guests and i should say it's mostly designed does that all designer so i say it's probably a good mix of some designers developers and just overall creatives i mean we've had presentation designers apparel designers we've got software engineers we have designed to cater we've got a pretty good cross section across i think design and development in terms of who we had on the show and it's of course not just here in the us we've had people throughout europe throughout africa through the caribbean i'm hoping this year to get to asian south america working on that so it's really kind of a good mix of what designers are doing around the world and are you like me my podcast is aside thing i mean i have a job this is still aside aside hustle i actually no it's part of my job now seriously how did you that i need to get that that's cool this shower i don't know we'll fall creek is is is a is a sponsor but they're also gracious enough for me to do this right alongside my regular work so with that you know we're also able to kind of bring the revision path audience along for things that we're doing fall creek as it relates to glitch you know if there are certain campaigns that were doing or a certain you know audience or segment that we're trying to hit then the revision path audience is kind of a built in component of that that's great and glitch of course everyone's learning about in in hearing about glitch on twitter because your ceo anil dash is like the the king of twitter right now a glitch dot com it's a it's a friendly community where.
