We’ve got a special bonus episode for you this week! I had the opportunity to talk with Maya Patterson, a product designer for Trunk Club in Chicago, Illinois. After a few chats in our Slack community about diversity and the state of design media, I thought she would me a fantastic guest.
Our conversation began with a look into a typical day for her at Trunk Club, and she shared how she got into product design, as well as the challenges she’s faced being a Black woman in this field. We recorded our talk last week, so we also spend time unpacking our post-election feelings and looking at ways designers can get involved with using their talents to make social change. Hopefully you’ll come away from this episode with some food for thought!
