It's amazing how many times I've crossed paths with Rafe Chisolm! We went to the same college, worked at the same place...we even live in the same part of town! And of all places, we first met in Austin, Texas at SXSW Interactive.
Rafe calls himself a "generalist designer", and his unconventional journey to becoming a designer is really inspiring. We talked about that journey, how he went on several interviews with the intent to fail, and how companies can help to bring in and promote more designers of color. Really good stuff!
