Let's start the show. All right, so tell us who you are and what you do. Chris Rudd, founder and CEO of shy by design. And my world is to give leadership to the organization as we practice our antiracist design and systems and social service work around the country. House 2022 been going so far. It's been good. It's been busy, I think, because our work is again centered on anti racism and designing antiracist outcomes. After the racial awakening of 2020, lots of organizations and institutions are trying to figure out a, how are they perpetuating systemic racism and then B figuring out pathways to stop and from our perspective, hopefully, to heal the communities and folks that they've harmed over the past. So yeah, it's been a lot. Great work, but also heavy work. Yeah, I can imagine. So I would guess you probably got like an influx of work during that summer of 2020. I think there's a lot of people I spoke to on the show where during that summer are like right after that summer, they just kept getting hit up with requests to speak or to consult or to work or anything like that. Did you kind of have that same swell of interest during that time? Yeah, a lot of speaking, I think during that time, particularly people were really trying to wrap their heads around what it was. And so there was a lot of, can we just talk to you? We want to hear what you're thinking about this. Then the work started to pick up, but we actually developed a rubric for our firm on what we would do and what we wouldn't do. So we really started to vet the organizations that wanted to work with us to see if they were actually about the change that they say they were or if it was just we want to put a black face to the work to somehow validate the efforts, even if they knew it was going to fall short. And even if they didn't know, we would work with them to say, hey, here's where we see your shortcomings. And if they were willing to understand and accept that, then we could move forward. If they weren't, then we were happy to walk away. That's good. 'cause I can imagine people probably came all out of the woodwork that found your firm and was like, wait a minute, that's a black guy. Let's talk to them. Let's see if we can help it. Yeah. And then really, you know, they thought they knew. That was a lot of them. All we gotta do is just, it would come out in this way. All we have to do is just make this one simple change. And boom, racism is gone or, you know, we will function differently. And the hard part for us is helping them understand that changing an organization changing a system, an institution is a huge shift or requires large scale shifts from top to bottom, not just in terms of personnel, but also in terms of philosophy, practices, policy, right? All these organizational structure. And so that was a hard thing for folks to deal with, right? It's been doing this thing for so long and from your perspective, you've been doing a great job, right? Profit margins may be through the roof or you've put out a couple of surveys of rate us and for the most part you send them to people that like you and you're like, yep, that was a great and then the negative ones that come back. You're like, oh, they don't really get it. And so, yeah, it's been interesting journey. Well, let's kind of dive in more and talk about your firm's shy by design. What you describe as a collaborative and cultivating space for designers of color, like that already just that hit me like a ton of bricks there. Tell me more

"Really felt nerve wracking, but gratifying is actually put together. You were one of the folks that actually came out and spoke with the initial one. And I want to make sure I take my time to thank you for that because I know that you're super busy and you sacrifice your time to speak at the event. But one thing that we all spoke about afterwards was the response of the iron Twitter from it. There were studios that tuned in live and actually created visual graphics of what was being discussed. There were people that tweeted and sent personal messages about how they never felt so seen or heard in the field itself. There was just such heartwarming messages that were coming into response to this at a time period where there was so much anger in anguish. So it felt really good to kind of put that together. Yeah, I remember seeing a no web flow was one company that sort of did these sketch notes right along with it. And for those that are interested, the 2020 event, I think it's on YouTube, right? Yeah, yeah, yeah, it's on YouTube. Yeah, and it was myself. It was Rene Reed a couple other folks who have been on the revision path podcast, but that was a really great event. It was just kind of this one day thing that we all came together and spoke and it was a lot of fun and I'm glad to see that you got that kind of feedback from it. Yeah, I needed that as well. Timothy Brad levins, who's also been on the show, spoke with me before programming before I began blending the second event. And he said to me like playing a conference, you typically do it in four stages, the first stage is, oh my God, I'm so excited. I can't wait to do this. Second stages are man. This is so much harder than I thought it was going to be. The third stage is I can't believe I agreed to do this. I'm never doing this again. What was I thinking, then the fourth stage? Once you start getting the responses, you know what? It wasn't that bad. I can do that again. All of the positive messages that I got at the time period, but the battery in my back to be able. So it's a kind of do it again the following following year. So given the popularity of the 2020 event, what can we expect from state of black design this year? Because you're putting it on again. So there are a couple of things that I'm trying to do differently that I think people can be really excited about. The initial event was really my attempt to give people a space in a platform and not necessarily do so in a manner that felt control looking thrived. I really wanted everyone to be able to speak their truth and talk in a way that other conferences have not allowed them to. And I think that was a part of the success of the initial events. The sheer rawness of some of the discussions. The second event was really making an attempt to continue that on, but part of the response that I was getting was really from companies that were trying to figure out how do we then create this pipeline for designers of color into industry that we are struggling to find. So I used this event as a mechanism to create this pipeline. I was going to use donations and sponsorships to keep the cost of the event free to students, but then leverage that money to pay our speakers as well as make attempts to offer scholarships to students that are studying design as well. So for this event, the conversation that I had with the number of the sponsors and stakeholders was really along the lines of what are some of the areas that are participants can be best served going forward. And one of the things we talked about is it's great to have these avenues open up, where they can interview, then IBM if they'd like to or an Argo design or materials or PayPal Adobe and everyone else that sponsored the event. However, especially considering that a lot of these participants are coming from programs that may not have the funding to give the same level of education within design and some other institutions or some folks of participating that are self taught, it would be amazing to give some professional development opportunities. So this year, I've been speaking to a lot of folks about hosting workshops in order to teach the people that are tuning in some new skill sets that they can use to improve their portfolios or to add new weapons to their utility belt when not to make a comic book pun and to improve their skill sets on a day to today basis something else that they can pull on to solve complex problems. Additionally, we're speaking about hosting projects that can be worked on with particular employers to kind of gain exposure to what particular assignments are like. So not only can you interview, let's say, for example, with an NBCUniversal, which will also be a sponsored events, but they will also be giving competitions where you can design a movie poster for a film that doesn't exist, but it then becomes an opportunity for you to engage with art directors in this particular industry and talk about potential internships or ways that you can improve that work. There are also making steps to expand our target base. And we're beginning to invite and have additional programming for high school juniors and seniors. So if you are getting ready to go into a college and your visual creative in your high school K through 12 education, which you don't know what a career will look like as a designer, how to begin it, how to start searching for a community or a community while on campus or even the right campus appropriate to go to where beginning this process of attempting to educate some of those students as well to try to set folks up for the success that they're looking for. Wow, so it sounds like it's kind of expanded almost into this career fair. I mean, of course, there's gonna be the different talks and stuff, but you're doing also a lot around making sure students are set up with interviews and other opportunities to network with companies. Yeah, yeah. I really want to backtracking if after the initial event, there were a lot of companies that, as I mentioned prior, that we're looking to find ways to diversify their workforce. And if that's the discussion that they're having, I want to be able to bring people to them, especially when a lot of people participants up these events are also saying that they would love to work for some of these Fortune 500 companies. However, I also want to make sure that I'm providing an avenue by which they can continue to improve the skill sets that they have in between the attending our conferences and in between their potential interviews for one position to the other. So my hope is if a student who begins to attend from their junior year of high school takes advantage of some of the workshops that are there, if they continue to attend these workshops and listen to these panels and interview with these companies that have been sponsoring their exposure and the connections that they would have made by the time they graduated would put them further ahead than it would have if they've never attended and never worked on anything outside of what was in their classroom. Who are some of the speakers for this year? Aw man, we have a ton of great speakers this year. This year, we will be headlined by Nicky Giovanni, which I'm super excited about. We will also have jelani Cobb who will be speaking. We will also have Anne Barry fellow Kent alone that will be there. We will have Regina Gilbert, lacy Jordan will be there Theresa Moses, Silas Monroe, Mary a MoMA, Mike Nichols, Colleen, kalina sales, a better Samson, rajas Shar, trade seals will be giving a work shop on type design. We will have Jennifer white Johnson to be hosting a panel on disability design. Kelly waters will be there. She'll be zinc from Microsoft will also be there as well. And this is just the name of the list is really extensive this year. I was going to say that's a lot already. Yeah. It's just an amazing list of people. And I'm really fortunate that they have all been willing to participate in this. It's interesting, you know, we talked about 2020 just earlier and one thing among many things that stuck out for me that year was just seeing how many black designers found community online that year. I think because of events like state of black design and so many others that started that year, black designers came around these events and really formed this sense of community. Have you felt that since the state of black design? I feel like the year by the state of black design, there were so many things happening within the community and people attempting to build their own table. That I think that year in general, when the first state of black design happened, we also had where the black designers hosted by mitzi, black ignite, which was hosted just a couple months after that, by Heather Lee, he also had their events as well as myself, which I believe was the last events of the year. We were all kind of in communication with one another, especially after our initial events happened. And we've all leveraged one another in order to keep everyone going. We each kind of serve a different role, but have each come together and kind of as a family, just to kind of keep things going so for the second events, I know we had Jasmine Kent from how I believe in black ignite and mitzi all sit on a panel together. I've consulted with mid scene, heavily on a number of things that I was doing for black ignite heavily brought me on to give a keynote. And I say all of this to say like there's not only been a community in terms of the following, but the folks that have been attempting to lead these separate initiatives have also been coming together to assist one another. So it's a fight and champion for the things that they view as important. And I feel like that's something that's been extremely beautiful and powerful. When considering three, four years ago, a lot of these spaces weren't available. There was no state of black design or black ignite or where the black designers and the followings for each have been extremely impressive. Yeah, they really have. I mean, of course, for folks that have been falling revision path around the time I talked all about where the black designers had mitzi on the show and everything. But yeah, it is interesting seeing how all of that has and I mean, I have to say it has come together very quickly. I mean, even from my somewhat limited perspective of looking at kind of the landscape of the design industry from 2013 to now and seeing how few events and things there were around black designers, even just media, when I started revision path, there was not any other podcast that we're talking to black designers about the work that they've done. And now, of course, 9 years later, there's several others besides myself, but just to see how things have grown in such a very short period of time, I'm curious to know, why do you think these other events just don't get it? Because what I find interesting, you know, aside from the speed of all of this is how I don't want to say how limited the resources have been, but y'all really pulled all this together from nothing. Like you put out a web page or you put out a call on Instagram or something and you have thousands of people flocking to you registering, you know, signing up for your event, spreading the word, fostering community. And you see larger larger slash other design competitions or events and things like that. That don't even come close to that. Why do you think that's the case? I think it's the number of reasons going back to my thesis research that I know we talked about in the initial interview large percentage of black college students that end up going to these so they end up going to social serving programs because based off of the research they did in my graduate year of college, there are a lot of students that when choosing a major will choose majors that help them either contextualize things they've experienced or choose majors that help them advocate for others. And I think that advocacy piece for a lot of people comes off as being political. I think design while it can be at school that's used for advocacy, it's often communicated solely as a tool of luxury. So even in terms of how conferences typically communicate themselves. And so if you go to not calling not picking at any conference in particular, but if you visit Hughes site, it's really all about how to learn the latest and greatest and designing for Fortune 500 company or a major firm that's dealing with a Fortune 500 company. But it's never articulated. It's never really given any attention to areas that may be of concern for people of color. And the reason being is that design always wants to come off as being apolitical. And my thesis research I quoted Melissa Harris Perry in her books as a citizen she had the segment where she talks about whenever people think of politics, they're often thinking about Democrats, Republicans, when in reality, the art of being political is really attempting to pull one person's attention from one thing to something else. So if I'm trying to get you to look somewhere that you're not currently looking that happens to be political, and then she then makes the argument that being black in America is really a political act within itself because you're consistently at something to get people to recognize your humanity. So the discussions that we have at a lot of these events are not just about being a better designer or what you can do in the workspace, but it's really these difficult discussions around the nuances of being marginalized. How do you exist in a space being a black person where you might be micro aggressed or the racism that you experience may not be as subtle all the time? It can be subtle and sometimes it's going to be very direct. What can you do to protect yourself mentally emotionally and physically? What are the recourses? How can other people be there for you to support you through these types of things? And in many cases, these are conversations that aren't really had in your traditional conferences, but their topics of discussion. And there are things that black signers are speaking about whether or not these conferences are including them. And not to mention traditional design programs typically tend to keep things very or centric. And they don't typically provide much room for cultural relativity or exploration into the cultures that a lot of people of color may come from. So if you now have workshops that are being done, so for example, trace seals will be giving his workshop a lot of his work is predicated on designing typefaces of marginalized audiences. That's not something that would traditionally be taught at a design school currently. But if it's something that's being provided out of workshop, it now becomes something that deals in that new ones and becomes interesting to people that have been marginalized. They want to know more about that history, but also how do I leverage that history and culture into my professional practice? Black ignite, how design where the black designers and state of black design each give you an opportunity to have that conversation safely. And also learn to explore visually, things.

Federal judge handed down a decision in dispute between apple the games that's an acre fortnight. One of the biggest games in the world at the time it was hailed as a huge victory. For epic apple stock went into a tailspin coming from one hundred four to one hundred forty nine dollars now. It may not sound like much but is pretty big. move large company in the world. There's just one problem with wall. Street's verdict epoch. Didn't really win in back in lost big but because a bunch of analysts made some cursory judgments about the judge granted and inject injunction against apple based on an obscure provision of a california antitrust law. We assumed it could wreck the profitability of apple's app store. Hey i made the mistake stick to but if he bothered read the whole opinion there so i mean the thing was just incredibly hard and if we can solve castle we realize that abba came out way ahead. Hence why epic. Not apples to one appealing. This rule remember epoch was trying to make the case that apple exerts monopoly power to extract enormous piece from software developers phase that discourage innovation subbed specifically outlawed by the sherman antitrust. That's the federal one. If apple lost tonight issue would have made sense for the sake clobber. But they weren't that issue. The judge said they're not a monopoly that was probably the most important part of granted epic one on one narrow issue apple hassle let app developers linked to their own apple storefronts so that consumers can buy products directly.

And what's best for them both in terms of convenience and security i look back on this as a victory for apple companies that want to use the app store while to comply with that was wish why did so many supposed experts get this so wrong well in this business.
