We're closing out January with a great interview with another multitalented creator -- San Francisco's own Ayana Baltrip-Balagás. She's a designer, a photographer, a business owner, an educator, and so much more!
Our conversation started off talking about the Organization of Black Designers, and from there we went into Ayana's history as an actress and dancer (and how that led into photography and design). We also touched on design education, and Ayana shared some great information on design thinking, the importance of Black designers having a strong online presence, and ways that the design industry can really start taking diversity seriously. Thank you Ayana for being a beacon of hope and a force for creative change!
