Happy Thanksgiving! May you have abundance of all great things in life for the year ahead!
We have an exciting guest on the show for this episode: I had the chance of meeting Maurice at the Podcast Movement Conference I attended in Chicago earlier in July this year. Since then I checked his podcast, Revision Path, and really enjoyed it so I asked Maurice if he’d be up for joining me for a conversation.
By the way, I apologise for my mistake in the introduction of the episode, I say Revision Path has been going on since 2014 but it’s actually 2013 – the first interview was published on 23rd March 2013, precisely.
Revision Path won several awards, including a “Most Inspiring Design Podcast Award” from Creative Markets and in the show Maurice has conversations with the best Black graphic designers, web designers and web developers from around the world. In his words:
“On each episode, we explore the stories, processes, experiences, insights, and creative inspirations of these awesome creators.”
Maurice also has his own strategy and design consultancy, called Lunch. It also just happens that right after recording with Maurice, he was headed over to Facebook’s Headquarters to give a talk about Revision Path as well as interview a few people for his show, and I mention this in the intro. You can head over to the Revision Path website to check it out.
Among many inspiring side projects over the years, Maurice launched the Black Weblog Awards, and shared his passion for tea in the Year of Tea podcast last year. Maurice is a pretty awesome person with some great stories as well as a great perspective on design, I really enjoyed our conversation and I hope you will too.
